Am I a non-trad?
« on: July 05, 2012, 12:33:06 PM »
I got a 166 on the LSAT in 2005.  Attended USC law.  Then dropped out.  And now, five years later, I am thinking about going back to law school.  I am 29 years old.

The term non-trad is fairly loosely defined.

Being a (little) older than some of your potential peers would qualify you by many people's standard. Other elements looked for by some users of the term include having pursued career level employment, having family responsibilities, having served in the military, intending to take class on an alternate schedule (e.g. PT night program).

Short answer, yes, but not as non-traditional as many non-trads.

I kinda did that.  I mean, I worked my way up to assistant manager at CVS/pharmacy in Boston, MA.  But that was before I attended law school for the first time.  After I dropped out of law school, I worked at a car and truck dealership in North Hollywood, CA.  I must've sold about $ 2 million of merchandise.
