It's easier to study when single

I would suggest that you take all the courses that you want while you're still young and while you don't have the responsibility of raising a family, especially when you want to take up further studies, say, in medicine or in law.

Even with review classes for nmat and lsat preps, it's still difficult to prepare oneself for entrance exams when you have other responsibilities already. Even if your parents give you the full financial and emotional support that you need, you still need time to study, not just for the entrance exams, but also your chosen course.

I've found that I was a more effective student when I was still single. Now that I'm married with two kids as well as a career, studying seems to be more difficult as I have to find time to cram in my homework and review in between the demands of parenthood and career. I'm glad I'm done with all my medical training before I settled down, because, once you have a family, your priorities change.

Note that I said that it's difficult...but not impossible. If you really are determined, you'd still find a way to do it.
