Honestly, I would think it would be better for someone your age to be around some people who are a little older... may help your maturity... keep you out of trouble and focused on the books...

Dude nobody wants to hang out with you grandpa. Why is it so hard for you to understand?

Sorry, Sport. Didn't mean to imply that younger = immaturity, kiddo. :wink:

I kid. I think the reason why older students want to talk up their maturity, is because we realize that in some cases our age will be seen as a disadvantage (as I mentioned). "Mature" sounds better than "old." However, in many cases (though not all, obviously) maturity does come with age.

I would add that older generally means more work experience (I'm leaving it up to others to speculate as to whether WE -> maturity). There's always a noticeable difference when I hang out with seniors in undergrad and when I hang out with people who've been working a few years; regardless of the number of part time jobs a person holds in undergrad, there's something about being in a full time job that changes people. The difference is not necessarily a good or bad thing, but it's there.

OP: Unless you're attending a part time program, I would find it difficult to believe that there's going to be any law schools where there aren't going to be a group of people around your age.

Wake Forest and American, for example, report "average age: 24". This, IMO, is tough to gauge. Same goes for Tulane which reports a median of 24.8.

Twitty from W&L says this: "Over the past few years, our median age for our incoming class has ranged from 23 to 25, and typically 40 – 50% of the students in our first-year class come directly from undergrad. We have always been a younger law school, and there are likely many reasons for this. We offer no part-time or evening program, and almost all of our admitted students are not in the Lexington area, so a complete relocation is required before they can start law school at W&L."

These are good points and provide clearer insight into the composition of the 1st year class.

I'm reluctant to ask another question on this forum but... does anyone have personal experience at Wake, Tulane, American, W&M, W&L, or Temple? What about SJU, BLS, Cardozo?

I would guess, though I have no research supporting this, that all the top schools are going to be fairly diverse, if not filled up with a lot of people who took at least a couple years off. It just seems like the decision to take a full ride at Michigan State over an acceptance at Michigan is an easier call for someone to make when they haven't had the real world experience of their humanity degree being crushed by the timeless equation, useless degree+garbage state school= have fun bagging them groceries. Also, undergrads in general seem more pressured to just get apps out and done and take whatever comes back their way. They often don't do the research or put in the time to make sure they are doing the process right. Of course, there are exceptions to all of this and the TLS community seems to be comprised of them, but it makes sense. I botched last cycle, did a bit better this year, but am considering sitting out once more simply because I know I could get better offers at better schools that would serve me better just by approaching apps a bit differently.

This is fair. I sure as fuck wouldn't want to go to school with a bunch of 21-22 year olds, so I guess I can't complain about the reverse.

For the record, I'm not saying that older students are more mature. I know too many old people. I also get that, all other things being equal, finding a school where more people are like you might make the experience of law school more pleasant. I'm older and I plan to go to Northwestern.

My point is that the "other things" in the italicized phrase above are usually much more important than average age. If OP gets into a bunch of mid-atlantic T1 schools, and after looking at the cost/benefits of each ends up choosing between (say) W&L with money and GW, it makes perfect sense for him to pick W&L because he thinks he'll fit in better. But starting his search by only applying to schools with a median age of 24 and excluding all the ones with a median age of 25 is kind of silly.

My other point is that if you're looking for younger students, you can't claim you don't have an age bias. Sorry to nitpick, but I just thought that thing he said was funny.

First off, I can see what you mean by wanting to have people with stuff in common with you.... BUT: A) no matter where you go to LS there will be people your age there (more than less given the average age) and B) get used to it. I challenge you to find a law firm, judicial clerkship, DA's office, etc where the average age is 26. You know what? It'll be good practice to talk to older people while you are there. Also, C) frankly I have friends who went to LS and just hung out with their 23 year old friends... and after they got done drinking and graduated middle of their class they couldn't find jobs. Maybe it would be better not to have any friends and get a job than the other way around. I am not going to LS for the social experience per se, I know it will happen some, and I will get good contacts for the future... but mostly I just want to do well and get a job. THIS IS A PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL! Party in undergrad and move on to the adult world 22 year olds.

That is all.

I agree with firemed.

Also, no matter where you go the majority of the students are going to be in there mid 20's. I just looked up CUNY's numbers because I remembered that it is considered very welcoming of older students. There median age is 26. This is a non-issue. You are not going to find a school where you have to go to class with all 40 year olds.

I'll see if I can get in touch with an ex-classmate who is a 1L at Wake. I guess I'm not "mature" enough to understand these people and their "worldly" experiences.

Although OP should be advised that he will have to deal daily with 40 year old, 50 year old, and even 70 year old clients and co-workers should he succeed in becoming an attorney.

Name-calling screams maturity doesn't it? To the person who said "grandma" before...I understood her. She's cool, I like her. But you're exactly the type my friend doesn't like at law school....oh and she did very well first semester being "22" and having friends at that age. My point was simple, don't try to tell me to grow up as if I'm not without any justification for it. Your tone set me off. I know exactly what law school is about, part of it is avoiding guys like you. Understand everyone doesn't operate, study, learn or WANT to be like you. Others carry themselves different, but when it's business time they're ready. I'm not going to argue on the net further, but your "blah blah blah....THAT IS ALL" talk irks me. But don't try to paint it like I wasn't respectful to everyone before you started attempting to talk down to me. Primary example of someone who hasn't "grown up" yet. Sorry OP for this turn. Dammit...you're not even the person I originally quoted, what's your deal?

But don't try to paint it like I wasn't respectful to everyone before you started attempting to talk down to me. Primary example of someone who hasn't "grown up" yet. Sorry OP for this turn.


Actually... I was the "That is All" guy. Not Johnny.

Secondly, tone on the internet is a weird thing. Oftentimes we hear what we think we will hear, not what was said.

Third, seriously... you need to learn how to take a fucking lecture. That was nothing, kind of polite, really. Wait until you screw something up in the real world, sport. A real ass chewing will make you feel like a 12 year old kid again. If you can't handle my little lecture (which was mostly my opinion, not fact) then you should really spend some time at a boot camp or something to prepare for the day when a typo you made lands you in the bosses office trying not to pee yourself. And don't think I am being all superior, because as all us old farts know, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US WILL BE THERE SOMEDAY! Even us old farts. The only difference between us and you is the fact that we will have lived through this a couple times already.

Name-calling screams maturity doesn't it? To the person who said "grandma" before...I understood her. She's cool, I like her. But you're exactly the type my friend doesn't like at law school....oh and she did very well first semester being "22" and having friends at that age. My point was simple, don't try to tell me to grow up as if I'm not without any justification for it. Your tone set me off.

I don't take lectures from anyone who A) isn't my boss or B) has somehow earned my respect for some reason. Some random person telling me to grow up without knowing what it took for me to even get to where I'm at in the world is never going to be on my good side. Furthermore, perhaps I misunderstood tone...but it's not the first time I've been apart of that debate on TLS. Probably won't be the last. It's something my friends in LS had to deal with before too and these guys are at the top of their class. I'm not even mad....look at my username...it's just like that annoying fly that keeps coming back. If I was mad I probably would've made a more personal remark...but you're right, I guess that's the internet. LOL@ you telling me to grow up though when all I did was rationalize the guy's question when you all were joking on him. I never even stated that I personally cared about age.

Failed to specifically understand what I was getting at and felt the need to "educate" me. Please. I'm done with this thread. If you need further help OP, PM me. I'll see if I can get in touch with an ex-classmate who is a 1L at Wake. I guess I'm not "mature" enough to understand these people and their "worldly" experiences.

You're an idiot who takes himself orders of magnitude more seriously than is warranted. Just stop posting.
