Since you have been out of school so long and have w/e get that LSAT to a solid 160 and you will have a chance at some small scholarships, but will definitely be accepted.

I don't get this question, it implies there's something wrong with the timing. I see nothing wrong, though. OP got a master's degree and 7 years work experience by 30? That's about right.

I think he's distinguishing between life experience and work experience. He should prolly have around 30 years of life experience by now..

When you get to 30+ you probably wouldn't call anytime before college graduation "life" experience.

chances of scholarship will depend on LSAT

just a 163 would probably get you in the ball park

look at LSAT 75 percentile of the school. Shoot above that.
