Are there many non-trad that are married? What type of employment do their spouses have? Do those that are married live in bloomington or somewhere else (indy)? I realize the people ITT may not know but any help would be appreciated.
As I am on the trajectory to be married before I get my JD, I am interested in these questions as well. Particularly #2. When I visited ND and Cornell they both gave us the, "Lots of students SOs work at the school"-line. Same deal in Bloomington? Is IU the center of the world?
Some people live in Indianapolis, but I think the drive is a bit much. Though, just from gauging differences, you could easily, easily live in between and have a comfortable commute for both. In fact, many of the adjunct professors do just that. The entertainment Professor Meitus, for example, lives about 10 minutes north of Bloomington while maintaining a practice in downtown Indy.
There did seem to be a trend wherein the law students spouses either attended or worked at the school. I can't tell whether they got preference for these jobs, but I did see that fairly often.
There is a group called OWLS (Older and Wiser Law Students) that you might want to reach out to at firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can check out their web page:http://law.indiana.edu/students/activit ... ndex.shtml
I can tell you as a single student who didn't pay much attention to these matters, that I did notice the school heavily catering to the needs of families.
