Orientation is less than a month away - the summer has passed SO quickly!!!! I've had to make a couple of trips to STCL, it seems like it will be a nice home away from home. ha!

Hi, everyone! I'll be attending in the fall, too. I sent in my application Feb 14 and heard back May 2, I believe. I missed out on the new student welcome, I guess. That sucks. I took the LSAT there and the times I've been to the campus I've been very impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. My lawyer had just graduated from STCL and he's one of the reasons I decided to attend law school. I haven't really heard anything too specific.

I like Houston. I've lived here for 18 years. I'm up in Spring now, but I work in Montrose, 3.5 miles away from the school. My boyfriend and I work together, so I'm going to catch the bus from work, which will be much easier and cheaper than trying to park. Downtown has definitely changed over the years, although I don't get down there too much.

Hi! I'll be attending STCL in the fall. I've lived in Houston for a long time, and at times quite close to the school. I'd be happy to talk to you at least about Houston stuff in general. I've been to the school a couple of times and I'm trying to work out a plan to get dropped off or take the bus and NEVER pay to park down there. ha! Good luck and I hope to hear from you!

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.
