It drives me crazy not knowing where we're going to be next year and whether I'll be able to find a job. Also, on top of everything else we're going to try for our first child next year. I know it's kind of crazy, but I'm older than my husband and I need to get on the baby track if I want to have a successful pregnancy. Any experiences or suggestions you'd like to share would be greatly appreciated.
Kids during law school? Talk to your husband about employment prospects first. Law school is hard enough without a newborn. If your husband is banking on top 10% or law review, he's going to need to treat studying like a full-time job. If you two are going into debt to pay for law school, make sure you have a plan to pay it back, and make sure you understand the state of the legal market right now.
