Hi,

Is there any reliable thread on here with advice, general discussion, etc for part-time/evening students?

I don't know the answer regarding a specific thread. I was a part time evening student with a full time job and a family so feel free to ask questions and when I check in here from time to time I'll try to reply.

Fordham? When did you get home most nights?

Also part timer - 2016 grad who went from 0 to 3 kids during law school

You'll find stuff in specific school threads: GULC , GW, and Fordham are probably your best bets.

Not Fordham for me. Texas A&M (yes, I know it's not well regarded here but it worked just fine for me). Depending on the semester and day of the week, I'd get home anywhere from 8:30 PM to 11 PM.

I went part-time for the first three years. I had a senior paralegal position in an in-house law department while going at night. Feel free to PM questions you may have.

Also, I did pretty well overall, even in classes with the full-time/daytime students and know quite a few part-timers who ended up as the top students so you can do it. My advice off the cuff is be organized with your schedule and try to enjoy your classes.
