Just found this group. About to turn 32. Applied to GWU, GULC and WUSTL ED (Binding) at February deadline. I've interviewed with WUSTL last week and I think I've got a pretty good shot at full-ride+stipend. I've also applied to MBA programs, so we'll see what happens and who offers me the most $.

Best of luck to all! It's definitely going to be a different challenge attending law school with a wife and kid.

I am in my late 30's, have a Masters degree, just started a six-figure job, and gave been thinking of obtaining my law degree but there is nothing more amazing than to come home from work, turn on Netflix, eat dinner, and sleep by 10pm! But there is this part of me that finds satisfaction in human rights; the legality process of finding justice for those who are in need. I have found great satisfaction in reading depositions, autopsy reports, and I can't tell you the amount of times that I have viewed the OJ story (starring Cuba Gooding Jr.) and all for the legality aspect. I recently went to CUNY School of Law's (in Queens, NY) open house and loved the school. I am just worried about a few things- maybe you all can help me;
1. My age
2. Already in student loan debt from my masters
3. I love my sleep!
4. I can't afford to pay out of pocket for a law degree
5. LSAT prep!!

Any help/advice would be much appreciated.


I went through a similar thought process and chose to go to law school, but it was a big decision and I don’t think it would be the right one for everyone. PM me if you want to hear more about my thought process in detail.

Hello Bush v. Gorgeous,
As you entered at 37 and will graduate at 40, I was interrsted in knowing if you were also working full time?
