quite possibly. yale would open every door i would ever want opened, and that is HUGE. but as i mentioned somewhere else (now i can't recall), i have close personal ties in chicago, and that's where i want to practice someday. my kids lost their dad two years ago, and i think another change would be difficult for them. the money is going to be a big issue for me regardless. looking at it that way, it makes the darrow look pretty irresistible. then again, law school is only three years, and we could always move back from new haven, with unbelievable opportunities for me in chicago or anywhere.
SIGH. i guess i have to do a lot of talking, thinking and reflecting in order to figure out exactly which move is the best for all three of us. often it's not so clear-cut; wish it was.
life gets complicated when you have kids. be nice to your moms, everyone.
it's a really difficult and often confusing job.
