Non-traditional student (sort of) seeking advice!
« on: January 22, 2009, 08:51:43 AM »
Hi, all.  I'm new to the board.  I posted this on the "Non-traditional" section, but this seems to be the more active board.  I'm curious if I would be considered a "non-traditional" student.  When I apply, I will be 26 years old.  I have been out of undergraduate for almost 3 and have been working full-time since.  Here are my stats:

UG: Tier 1 National University, GPA: 3.6
Work Exp: 3 years at major Investment Bank
LSAT: planning on taking June '09 (assume: high 160's)


Will this give me a leg up over more traditional applicants?  My targets are Columbia (stretch), NYU (stretch), Penn, Fordham (PT), and Georgetown (PT).  Just curious what you think my chances are.

Thanks in advance for the help!


Best,
ths2

Nope, you're still pretty well "trad" -- below the average age of applicants for most schools, even. Check out lawschoolnumbers.com to get an idea of how high you'll need to score on the LSAT for your target schools. Good luck!
