Yes. Kansas City is in both Missouri and Kansas. State Line Road runs through the middle of the city.

I'm old too and I put off for a cycle therefore I know what it is like and I know it is totally doable. May not be ideal but if you waited until you were 30 or 31 to take the LSAT and you wanted to go that cycle then that was just poor planning on your part. I don't see why you would take one poor judgement call and allow it to snowball into an even bigger one.
And what is so bad about St. Louis?
My poor planning was getting into the construction industry before it collapsed. I went back to school and took 81 credit hours to finish my degree in two years. I'm moving as fast as I can.
The reason these applicaitions look weird is because I only intended to seriously consider 4 of them:
Everywhere else was intended for scholarship leverage. I got fee waivers for 15 of the 18 schools I applied to.
St. Louis is a pain in the ass. I went to Missouri S&T in Rolla years ago, so I spent some time in St. Louis. Nothing about it appeals to me. Part of that is probably my general hatred of big cities.
