Yes, I decided to go to law school just in the last week, long story. A little background: I'm 51, graduated from med school in '84, practiced until '93 when I decided to stay home with the kids. Going through a divorce and see this as a great time to get a fresh start on life. Don't want to practice medicine, but rather do advocacy work. Kaplan starts a course on 11/8, and I still have time for late registration for the Dec LSAT. Since I'm not working, can devote lots of time to study. Kids will graduate from college may 2010.
thanks for any feedback
Absolutely not! I am 47 and am taking the Feb 2010 test. My undergrad GPA wasnt the best, but I know scoring a 150 or better locks me into law school. At this stage I really dont care what type of school I get into as long as it is in the DC area. I wont get into Gtown or GWU, but perhaps Catholic, GMU, or UDC. I just want to get in, graduate, pass the bar, and take cases. We have NOTHING to lose. If I have to, I will venture out to Appalachian which is in Lundy VA. Bottom line, its never too late and some law schools will accept you based on your age to market the older non trad student for the future! Best of luck.....Kevin
