What are characteriscics of someone who would fall into the "non-traditional student" category? I believe I fall into that category, but I'm not sure.
I'm 27, so I'm not a typical 21- or 22-year-old applicant. I've also been a paralegal for 6 1/2 years, and I worked full-time/part-time while putting myself through undergrad. Is this what they mean by "non-traditional?" I wasn't sure if this more applied to people 30+, people with children, low-income students, etc.
Also, I don't make that much working part-time about $19K.
Thanks for the input!
IMHO you might barely fall into non-trad, but only b/c of age. I think of non-trads as over 30, maybe coming from a completely different profession, WE maybe outside of law... but that's just me.
