On the upside, though, I eventually became accustomed to taking practice tests with a screaming baby and a barking dog in the background and, when some candidates at my Sept 07 test nearly suffered a mental implosion from a noisy distraction during the third section, I barely even noticed. Ha, ha, that is so cute!How has family life limited or expanded your possibilities when it come to law school?I think that having a daughter has limited my possibilities a bit. Well, not really the possibilities, but what i am willing to give up. For instance, i hesitate to move far away to go to law school because my daughter wont have much contact with her father or grandparents if we live hundreds of miles away. I still may move away, but it will be a much more important decision than if i did not have a kid. Do you think that parenthood has prepared you in any way for law school?Oh, yeah. I think parenthood has made me more determined to achieve my goals. It also has led me not to take myself too seriously and take time to "smell the roses" and appreciate the small things instead of being overly focused on success, which is my natural tendancy.Overall, I think that we parents/family people have a little bit tougher time, especially, for me, simply finding the time to fill out apps, write the required essays, etc. But i also thinkg that we have a lot of motivation and drive that will actually help us do well in law school and as lawyers.
