I am a 33 year old single woman with two kids ages 4 and 3. I got my undergrad years ago and have an ok career in computers. I feel like I'm not living up to my true potential and a career in law has been on my mind for the past several months.
The thing that concerns me is financing law school and how to afford daily expenses if going to law school full-time? Should I consider going part-time and keeping my current 8am-5pm job?
Any input you all have is greatly appreciated.
4 and 3 is rough. I would wait til they are a little older, esp. cause they are so close together...
You can get a scholarship to law school, and live off student loans and the child support money. And move to a cheaper place. And have your car paid off before you start. Have a parent move in with you.
2 small children constantly needing your attention is going to be a big strain on your ability to focus unless you decide to have them spend a portion of every day in childcare or at a sitter so you can concentrate...
