It's also pretty weird to be getting on a mother for choosing her kids over law school. If you don't have kids or have a different set up then you have a huge advantage LS wise, and it's incredibly douchey to get on them about this. One of the paramount goals of the high income DF is talking about is to provide a good life to your real or hypothetical children. You can't do this if your children are miserable and depressed. If anything she is being selfless and should be respected for her choice. Going after prestige and personal success is the easier decision here... especially if she did well 1L.
