You're never too old to go back to college! Have you thought about being a paralegal instead? You would get out of school a lot quicker and still make decent pay.

It's very do-able. I get all the sleep I want, I go out with hubby on the weekends, take naps during the day, and make straight A's. It's all about time management.

Quoting Hannahluvsdogs:

When are you going to sleep?

Quoting Allinorder:

I'm going to study while the kids are sleeping.

No. It'll be harder to study while raising a family, but it's doable.

It's also about what classes you take. She wants to go to law school; there is a ton of studying required there.

Nope. When I was 17 and in college, I remember seeing a lot of grey hairs in my classes. Lol. That's what I thought of old people when I was young. These women were like in their 50s going back to school.

One of my favorite quotes.....You are never too old to be what you might have been.  Never give up on your dreams.

Kids are typically in school 7-8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Then weekends they may be home but if they are old enough to be in school, they are old enough to entertain with a movie or game while you sneak in some studying. If someone can't do it on that, it's only because they don't want it bad enough. Especially when they have a supportive husband who will provide financially so she can put all her time into school.
