Don't worry about being 34. I entered law school at age 32, horrified at how old I was and convinced everyone would ostracize me because I was such a geezer. In fact, I remember reading a post on this board about how older students don't have enough energy to compete with younger students. That's bull! I am at one of the top law schools in the country and have done very well. In fact, my friends range from age 23 to age 40, and I can honestly tell you that no one cares about how old you are. The schools don't care either -- all they care about is your performance. I am now in my second year and having a truly wonderful experience with employers. Just like the schools and the students, employers don't care how old you are!
Don't worry about your age or being "non-traditional." That term exists only on this discussion board; it does not enter the minds of employers or admissions committees. If you are interested in law school, go for it!
