How do people just go to law school financially? Do they live off the student loans? ...Any suggestions on how this financial stuff works?
I have a recommendation of a book that deals in significant part with non-traditional law students...Law School for Dummies by Rebecca Greene. Yes, I know--at first I wasn't sure I'd get all that much serious info out of a For Dummies book, but this one is really aimed at non-traditional students. I am a 1L this year and before that I transitioned out of a career in teaching high school music for five years. I am also married with a three-year old son. This book was invaluable to me because all the other law school guidebooks I read were geared toward straight-from-college students, and this one included tons of info for us non-trads.Just my $.02.
I have a question of course.I want to go to law school and then practice aviation law. I have almost a decade in the aviation industry now. I am also a single parent.QuestionHow do people just go to law school financially? Do they live off the student loans? I will have all my credit cards paid off at the end of the year and I will still have nine months left on my car loan come August 2005.I want to just go to law school and totally experience it. I have two associate's degrees and I am completing my bachelor's degree all online. I want to GO to law school.Any suggestions on how this financial stuff works?Thanks!Christie
