Would 1L be able to find part time work in law related field? I would have to quit what I am doing now, and the part-time jobs I can get do not pay very well.
thanks! What about the summer after 1L and after? My best bet as I thought would be try to qualify for money at schools then take out loans to keep everything paid. but if there are good work prospect after 1L it would obviously be that much better. Boy if I had knew i was going to law school I wouldn't have gotten into this mortgage and its a horrible time to sell too. how do most non-traditional keep the bills paid? working spouse? then you would need childcare too.
I have classmates who worked fulltime jobs and had kids (one a single mother of three) who did it in 3 years just like FT,

Most part-time programs I've looked at said 5 years! Wow my hat goes off to this women, and I'd love to get some pointers, tips, or advice on how she did it!
