When is it to be too young? I am 18 now, and I am graduating from the University of Delaware in May '06. If all goes as planned, I will get my JD @ 22. Is this too young? Will firms look at my youth as a GREAT handicap?
No, but you might be posting in a nontrad newsgroup looking at a new career in 15 years asking the same questions about being too old
Age is an absolutely personal thing. I knew a 90 year old lady that ran 3 businesses, managed 5 apartment complexes, raised 12 kids, and cared for her Alzheimers suffering husband with the gusto of noone I've ever seen. I also have read comments from 35 year old folks commenting about how they are too old to become lawyers
Follow your dreams, work hard with enthusiasm, and success will follow. Ultimately, results matter ... age doesn't.
