Incoming 1Ls / Re: How old is too old to begin law school?

And as far as the ability to pull all-nighters goes, the necessity for them decreases with age....because as one gets older, one's time management skills increase. I spent far less time awake all night studying (and made better grades) because I made better choices on how to spend my free time. In my twenties, not so much. I still made good grades, but they were acquired far more painfully because I crammed rather than studying consistently. I didn't go to class consistently. The last three years I was in school I can count on one hand the number of classes I missed. Somehow, when I starting paying for school myself my attendance increased dramatically.

I'm 37 and will be attending law school in the fall. I don't believe that there is an age that is "too old" to do something. And yes, perspective DEFINITELY changes with age. I went back to school to finish undergrad at the age of 34. I've made friends older and younger than myself in my classes and didn't feel left out or excluded at all. However, most people I met thought I was 24, so that may have been a factor. Regardless, I believe any learning experience is what I choose to make of it, and I don't intend to have my "late" return to school be a problem or a hindrance.
