To wait or not to wait??? Help

Postby magictheatre » Thu Jan 03, 2013 2:07 am

How much does age factor play a role in law school? I scored a 157 in dec and know I need to re-take but I am already 25 and this would be my second attempt already for law school. I'm also emigrating to US so don't have a job in US but am a lawyer in India currently with a full-time legal job. I'm concerned about being 26 and entering school and then post-law school its likely people I work with will be younger than me, at the same position.

Also anyone know what kind of jobs I could do in law related fields in the US if i do decide to wait another year to apply to law school?

PS: correction I will be 27 as admission would be in 2014.

You might be surprised to know that 26 is not very old for law school here. Most people take a couple years off between graduating from college (usually at age 22-23) and entering law school. I myself am 25 and will be 26 when entering law school. There's even a whole thread on this site for people who are over 30 and just applying. You will be fine.

Regarding your other question, you could try to get a job as a paralegal or in some office admin type position for a law firm.

Don't worry about your age. I turned 25 at the beginning of my first semester, and a lot of people are older than me. It's no big deal.
