I've thought about law school. But I'm 53. My wife is a lawyer but doesn't work full time and doesn't earn that much. Our kid is out of the house, gone to college.
I did something like this once before. At 35 I went back to school in computer science, at Stanford. I have worked in software for many years but am bored with it and tired of being discriminated against by tech companies that don't want anyone over 30.
I also thought about law school many, many years ago and got a 722 on the LSAT. I'm probably better at going to school than at being satisfied working for someone else.
My wife thinks no one would hire me at 57, when I finished school. True? If so, I'd have to practice on my own, and the prospect of that seems daunting. I don't have a sales-type personality, and obviously I wouldn't have experience. Is that even realistic? How would I get any business? Any better suggestions?
