I am 35 (not old at all unless you are 20 ) but it has been implied by my local law school that I do not have the factors they are looking for nowadays. I started school 17 years ago, left school after 2 semesters with a 1.8 gpa. Went back to school 5 years ago, made deans list 7 semesters, but still get a 3.15 lsdas gpa. I didn't get involved in the school activities because I am a single mom, volunteered at the same place for 5 years and just wanted to focus on my son. I guess that is frowned upon. I took the lsat and got a 176, so I thought I would be okay with great recommendations, BS in Economics, but I guess I was wrong. Should I really try for law school or should I just give up with the thought that I did what was best for my family, not for "school image"?
