Job Search / Summer employment prospects for 44 year old law sudent
« on: October 01, 2008, 08:30:56 AM »
Though I am applying for Fall 2009, I am posting my question to this particular discussion group hoping 2L's would have direct or observed experiences of their classmates to share. I am a 41 year old black male(single) with a 170 LSAT and 18-plus years of corporate finance, private equity and hedge fund experience. Additionally, I have an MBA from a Top 10 business program. Considering my undergraduate GPA is almost as old as my fellow applicants, it's 3.14(LSDAS).

I am applying to T14 schools, but employment prospects with BIGLAW are a concern. Currently, I am considering government employment with the SEC as being a primary objective. Not wanting to close out options, any candid, anecdotal insights into how BIGLAW may view my age is appreciated. 

As far as hours, my hours now are 16 hr days; thus not a problem. For the record as well, I in no way look my age (64 ounces of fresh juice a day does wonders).

Thanks in advance

I'd appreciate constructive feedback to the prospects for admission to a top 10 or top 25 law school with the following academic credentials and work experience?

UGPA (3.1 from Stanford University/University of Miami: transfered to the University of Miami in middle of sophomore year)
MBA from UCLA in 1990 with a 3.3 GPA
LSAT: 170

Worked as Hedge Fund Analyst and Trader since 1998; with prior positions in venture capital and corporate finance.

Thanks in advance for responses!
