I got some funding from an outside source, and don't know exactly what it's like trying to get $ directly from admissions/financial aid. I did hear it's tough, for whatever that's worth (not a lot).
I think working 9-5, 5 days a week with any kind of a job that would legitimately support your law school and living expense is tough. But not impossible.
Are you working now? If so, you might want to try an experiment - go to work all day, then try to attend a lecture someone's holding somewhere ~6PM that goes for 2.5 hours. Take detailed notes. Go home. Go to sleep. Go to work the next day. Then, find 2 books in the library on something complex and perhaps overly technical. Be sure to read and take notes on those books over the weekend.
Now imagine doing that for ~4 months. Plus legal writing assignments, plus final exams.
It ain't easy. But many people do it.
The night classes are not smaller.
You're very welcome - glad you feel helped.
