Oh, I am scared to death but I waited 13 years (yeah, 13!!) to apply so I can't stop now.  I just need to focus and figure out the time management factor (and a reliable sitter AND an understanding employer).

I dont really have much useful info to add to this topic but I know that a few law schools, like Southwestern in Los Angeles, have full programs (as an alternative to FT/PT) that cater to single mothers (class scheduling, time management, peer groups etc).  Also, I give you ladies credit for going ahead and pursuing law school in spite of everything else you have to deal with.  Bravo!

I noticed a school in Florida (I think it was Stetson...but I could be wrong) that had housing for single parents. But since I took the LSAT in Feb. I had already missed the deadline. Anyone know of some East Coast schools with p/t programs that are single-parent friendly?
