How is age not relevant? A 30 year old is in a different stage of their life than when they are 22 (or 45, or 60, or whatever), so different factors are going to influence their decision.
Of course, but asking "why do you want to go to law school now" or even just "why do you want to go to law school" serves the same purpose regardless of someone's age. Asking "why do you want to go to law school at 30" sounds more like there's something weird about going at 30.
I recognize I'm probably overreacting to your post, but people here do tend to hold older candidates to a higher standard for justifying going to school later in life, and it annoys me.
Last post, as I see that neither of us really want to get into it, but that's not necessarily true. For example, what if the 30 year old in question wanted to go to law school because of his children/family? Weird reason, but motivations can and do change, and can definitely be age dependent.
