Thank you first and foremost for taking the time to read this and for any replies to help my future path. Im currently 34 years old and am planning a drastic change in my life and circumstances. I own and operate a small mobile audio company which I started in 2008. I also work as a manager for a local auto parts store. Most of my life choices have put me where I am. Some I am proud of some I am not. Some unforeseen circumstances have also played a significant factor in other areas. I am married to my wife of 6 years and we have a wonderful 5 year old daughter. My wife has just finished school so now as promised to my daughter, I am returning to school. I attended Devry University in 2003 with a major in Electrical Engineering however due to a major illness, I was forced to leave after only one year. While I was there, my grades were slightly above average but nothing outstanding. I've spent years with many doctors and multiple surgeries getting myself to a happy normal again. Now onto my point. I have a goal to complete law school. Its time to start down the road. I am looking at the local community college for a degree in criminal justice for my undergrad. My first question is if this is an acceptable way to start or am I wasting my time at a community college? Should I even begin looking at a graduate school yet? Am I too old to even be considering this? Are there any recommended books or literature that I can study up on to influence my actions in a helpful manner? Does anyone have any pertinent information that could help me out? I greatly appreciate your time and thoughts on this.
