Graduating at 29 from law school in this legal market / economy with debt is too old for it to be a wise financial & career decision.s
Even without debt, the degree is likely not worth the effort and stress.
Some of the posters ITT sound like teenagers. 30 is not old. You're still so, so young and have so much of your life ahead of you. You do not drop dead once you hit 35.
Even if we're just talking about being "financially secure"... if you graduate at 30, you still have 35 MORE YEARS of working before typical retirement. If you graduate at 25, you have 40. This is not a significant difference.
What is significant is taking that extra time to figure out who you are and who you want to be. I'm sure this has been said before, but if you guys are getting into law strictly for the ROI, you're making a poor choice.
