1) If there is such a thing as too old for law school, it is certainly not 32. If you want to be a lawyer, go for it.
2) No idea. If you can get business in whatever your first language is, that could be good, or if your English is up to some acceptable level... But, yeah, no idea.
3) No idea, I'm going in America. Are provincial loans an option?

this year we just bought a single house in toronto,so,i want to ask:
1)  is it possible for me to go to school? i am 32 yrs now, i am preparing for LSAT currently; is it too old for me?
2)   should a lawyer/law student has to be exercellent at spoken English? E is my 2nd language;
3)   if i can go to law school, how can i pay my tuition? coz we have to pay the mortgage,too?  commercial loan? or,grants>>>??

thank you guys for your comments.

32 is definitely not too old, you should go for it.  However, I would say that having an excellent grasp of the English language is a necessity ... you will be doing excessive amounts of reading and will need to be communicating with judges, clients and other lawyers all day.  Do you have trouble on the reading comp sections of the LSAT? I would say that is a good basic litmus test.

for reading, i mean, it's ok; because i prepared for GRE before; however, there is still room for me to improve my RC in LSAT.

thanks for your suggestions
