(There are a lot of "I"s in this post and I make no apology. hehe)
I've had a nagging itch to finish my bachelor's degree and study law. Let me set the scene:
44 year old father of four babies/adolescents, husband, somewhat successful ministry and budding independent insurance business on the side. And I want to reinvent myself and study law. Honestly, I don't even know what I would do with it. I know I wouldn't dedicate my whole life to it. I know it's expensive without grants or scholarships. I know it's all-consuming for three years and I still don't even have my Bachelor's degree.
AND STILL, I keep asking myself if it can be done and imagining the doors and opportunities it would open. It's not a passing thing. This has gone on for months. I even visited the University of Central Oklahoma where I studied the bulk of my Associate's degree to see what the "counselors" there could tell me.
I'm going to be in Norman tomorrow and I'd like to go early enough to visit OU and sit down with someone in the law department and see if they have any advice. There's a small connection with a local district court judge and I've contemplated asking for a few minutes of his time, as well.
In a way, I think I'm checking in here to see you guys have any advice, too.
If you were in my situation at my age, would you go for it?
