Non-Traditional Students / 50! and still thinking of law school!!!
« on: September 03, 2010, 03:52:27 PM »
Missed taking/studying for LSAT for 2010 time wise. My background: I am a RE Broker with own boutique biz, love the legal aspects but not the commission aspect of the job. Received BA in Criminal Justice and can't for the life of me get any kind of job. Thinking law school, but hesitant mostly because of cost to income. I could see myself working for years in an area I love. Husband is supportive, kids are grown. I just don't want to make the financial investment to find disappointment. I've tried getting  a job in law firm (something a little more stimulating than receptionist) and again, hit brick wall....thoughts???

I have the same concerns. I attended their open house yesterday and was struck by the low bar pass statistic. The asst. dean addressed it by saying that the full time students who were doing B work have a pass rate of @ 80%. It did make me feel better. I plan to practice in CA so the ABA doesn't mean as much to me, at least now.
