I recently sat in on a 1L Criminal Law class and I was surprised at the number of students playing solitare on their laptops. I asked the 3L who gave me the tour about it and she said "Well you know, these classes are pretty boring." I laughed and thought to myself that some of these people are in for a rude awakening when they get out in the real world....I was also surprised at the number of them who could not speak in front of the class when called upon by the professor.
Hello I'm actually almost 38 and am an undergrad at UVa. I had three kids and am now a grandmother thats why it took me so long to go to college. I only got a 150 on my LSAT... found out the night before that my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer... registered to retake it in Oct and my mom died on test day... so I just wrote an LSAT addendum... one of the deans here wrote me a letter of recommendation and he told me not to worry about the LSAT at my age... he feels that it does not matter as much becaue of life experiences in addition to the fact that older students just don't do as well on this test. I also know of a student who got a 141 last year and was accepted to a law school, remember we can always transfer after the first year.
38 in a month and 172 in June. What's age got to do with it?
