i am going to be single and 37 in law school...have given the social life (and sex life) challenges a lot of thought. i was abroad last year and volunteering with a bunch of 20something liberal do-gooders, which i thought i would fit in great with, since we were all trying to accomplish the same democracy-building goal. i was a total misfit with that particular bunch - they condemned me when i was willing to entertain a different perspective than theirs and they pretty much wrote me off. bottom line, i am REALLY hoping that law school students are more willing to see both sides of an issue and to stay open to the possibility that perhaps the truth is in the middle. i think that law school would be a good place for that, but that is my biggest concern, after discovering that the only thing worse than a closed-minded conservative is a closed-minded liberal.
Good luck with that. From what I've been able to gather, law schools range from very liberal to ridiculously liberal. I'm sure there are some conservative students, but I think they're often scared into silence. Seriously, if this is an issue for you, choose your school carefully.
I'm definitely looking forward to the professional contact thing.
I admit, I'm terrible about meeting people outside of structured situations. I'm just not quite outgoing enough, and have issues with thinking I'm imposing on people (I'm horrible at networking and hate asking favors of anybody.) So the hope of good, interesting discussion and openness of views is good.
Especially because, well... I'm a social liberal and a fiscal conservative. I should have some outside of law school contacts, at least.
If I stay in town, there's always the boyfriend, and his group of friends is pretty extensive, as well. I think we may only end up applying to one school that's the same, mobo, since I'm trying to stay in Texas. I'm just hoping they'll overlook my average grades and poor grad school performance from ten years ago.
