Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I mean, this is an incredibly personal decision. I don’t think going to law school will have any effect on finding a spouse or making time for a family, unless you decide it will. You don’t have to put that off for school. Age isn’t an issue unless you decide it is; plenty of people go to law schoo...

I may bail on this. I think the window for me pursuing this has passed. I put my self in a tough situation. I’m not remotely ready for the lsat and my studying has been inconsistent due to personal extended family issues. Plus I just turned 33, so I will be in my late 30s when I graduate. At that po...

I’m not confident I will be ready in November.
I would by lying to you if I told you there hasn’t been gaps in my studying. I’ve had a few time gaps of the past couple months of studying. It’s not good

Remember that admissions will not be following typical cycle patterns this year. That doesn't mean November will necessarily be any better/worse for the upcoming admission cycle, but it won't be as formulaic as in years past because everything from testing to LORs are frustrated by the current publ...

How did you get into a top 25 law school with a much worse gpa? With the right LSAT, plenty of folks with sub-3 GPAs get into good schools. I had an offer (but no scholly) from WashU. Several folks with 2.8x or 2.9x got into UVA, Penn, Northwestern, etc. in my cycle. Early applications help a lot, ...

Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I'm a 36 year old 2L. My GPA in undergrad was substantially worse than yours (2.52). But I was able to rock the LSAT, and that's often enough to bring out some scholarship offers. I'm at Washington & Lee on a little over a 2/3 scholarship. If you've got the ability to get above a 170, you should se...

Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I highly doubt I will receive a scholarship or some sort off offer. It just seems unlikely based off my GPA. Maybe I am wrong? Another issue: I am 32 and will by 33 next spring. It seems like the time for this decision has past and I would be in a disadvantage. My GPA was not as good as it SHOULD h...

+1 to Nov scores not being too late to cop scholly. also +1 to switch from a "cycle-oriented" approach to applying to a "score-oriented" approach.

it's been established that 32 isn't too old, but neither is 33.
I just turned 33.

I will be 34 if I go in Fall 21

Hello, I finished undergrad back in Late 2010 with a 3.23 GPA. (Major GPA 3.6 in History) I was considering this during my last year and after I finished but I never made the next step. My original intent was to take a couple years off, think about it, then make a decision. Well, life happened and ...

Too late to start studying for the LSAT or too late to go to law school? I'd say neither. If you genuinely want to be a lawyer and if you end up getting a good enough LSAT score to get into a top school OR get a full-ride to a strong regional school, then I'd go for it. There were plenty of people ...

I guess my concern is that is do new graduates (late thirties) tend to get hired at biglaw firms? I’ve done research online and I could not a find one instance of this actually happening.
