The hardest thing for me so far is that the only school within a reasonable distance is not at ALL reputable yet there is some difficulty in managing a different school with a family. Any advice?
There's a pretty limited set of circumstances where I'd say going to a school like FL coastal makes any sense. Would a JD further your current career? Do you have an established network such that you KNOW you'll have a job on graduation? If not then you have to consider taking the lumps and moving to a better school, especially if law school is a means to a career change.
