Getting into law school was easy… the hard part is paying for it*

I have no experience with loans.

There, I admitted it to the world.

But seriously, my parents were able to gift me my college education with no doubt. Four years in a private Catholic university and I was sent out into the real world with no thought as to how most of the rest of the world got thru the college experience.

BOY. Was I in for a surprise.

When Mike told me that he wanted to go back to law school, I was really nervous but still excited. He had made a decision – the first big one of our marriage – and I was going to be supportive.

But I had absolutely no idea how we were going to pay for it.  In fact, I still really don’t have a clue.

That’s where a whole bunch of research comes in. I hope to figure it all out and send hubs to school without going into the poor house! It’s gonna take a lot of work… but he’s worth it. :)

*This blog title is being posted under protest by the husband. Mike CLAIMS that it’s a bunch of hooey – he said it was actually hard to study for the LSAT, sit thru a four hour test, and then wait endlessly for the result. I can’t even remember my last test. WHATEVER.


  1. Loans are a pain! Thankfully, I have my parents and the military to help pay. :)

  2. It's a scary thought to sign up for 'em, but I know it's the right thing!
