Well, I was subtitute teaching 3 days a week and have no bills (except for gas and food).  I'm still considering part-time LS and speaking with family members who are attorneys and getting a little advice.  My niece attended a 4T LS and works for the Governement so I'm still hopeful upon graduation (not to mention networking with the other attorneys I worked with over the past 9 years). 

I'll stillremain prayerful and not get caught up in the admissions process.  I wonder if the Income Base Repayment plan which will be in place 9/2009 will help with student loans while working in public interest?

It won't hurt, anyway. The issue, in my opinion, is the time, energy & money crunch while in ls. If you attend, I recommend borrowing enough to take say 9 credits/semester & don't work, then you should have enough time for your child & to pursue PI opportunities.
Freak is the best, Freak is the best!  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I don't like calling you Freak, I'd rather call you  Normal Nice Guy.

If I were you, I'd go - probably part time. Life is too short to defer things that you really want to do.
