Since you are willing to take advice from fathers, I may be able to give a little advice. I am in the middle of applying right now, so I can't give any advice about what it is like parenting while in law school. However, the one thing I would tell you is to start studying for the LSAT early. I took a prep course, and figured that would be fine since I would be out of the house, but there is a lot of additional work that needs to be done outside of the class to get the most out of it. I hadn't planned any additional time for studying and was unable to concentrate on the material with my daughter (now 19 months) running around the house. So, to sum up my advice...start studying for the LSAT early and plan for study time at home without the kids.
