"non-traditional"?

Postby honolulu_hopeful » Thu Dec 20, 2012 3:55 pm

In UG non-traditional students were older students (i.e. old enough to have graduate when by the time they started). Is this similar to LS, what is the age (ballpark)?

I think it's if you've been out of undergrad for at least 5 years.

Do you have any actual life experience as compared to the K-JDs? Yes? Good, you are a non-trad.

(provided you go to most schools. obv there are exceptions, see Northwestern)

Is an application specifically asking for this information? Otherwise, I'm not sure why a law school would care. Probably 10% or more of my class is over 30 and more than half, I would estimate have been out of school for more than a year or two before starting law school.

8 years Active Duty count as "real world" experience?
