So, I got accepted into a top 100 law school at the tender age of 52. I am excited in that I always wanted to be a lawyer, took my first lsat back when dinosaurs walked the earth, but other priorities prevailed. Will start fall 2011; but have a question...... how will my "classmates" view me? really don't want 4 years (going part time due to job) of being alienated.... just curious.
I am starting AGAIN at 54. I first started law school in 1992 after undergrad, I was 35/36 but I was making a lot of money and was raising a family, I worked as a Entreprenuer, Network Engineer, Public School Teacher, College Professor, and Real Estate Broker. I am not sure how you will be viewed. Fortunate for me I am also attending a Distance Education program, so I will probably not be viewed at all. However; How your are viewed depends on how you look, how you dress, and how well you interact with others. Your age could be an asset, instead of a liablity. Alienation IS NOT the worst thing in the world.
