This one is simple.I am too old to be accepted.If I was 29 instead of 36, Id be looking for a way to get into OCS instead of Law school.
You asked dude... thats my answer.To be honest 9-11 has alot to do with my going back and finishing my BA at all. After it happened, I was like, @#!*, Im 33.. to old for anything useful in a military sense.... but wanted to make a contribution in some way, BIG motivating factor.Of course it took me a year or so to realize that with a bad overall gpa from CalState nowheresville that I wasnt gonna be recruited to do CIA, FBI or DHS work either. But at least maybe someday as an Atty, I may do something useful.. who knows.certainly has more options for contribution than working in IT.
This may seem like a harsh or provocative question, but it is one that should be asked.Many people have expressed support for the war in Iraq. For them it is a just war against a horrible tyrant, and despite the controversy it is a war we should fight.If you feel the war is just and it should be fought and fought by us, why are you going to law school and not into the military?I realize that some LSDers have been to Iraq. At least one is there now. Others serve or have served in the military. I served for seven years myself. This question is not for them, but of course anyone is free to respond.And I mean no disrespect to anyone in asking this question, but it is a natural question.
