Age and applications

Postby YinFireHare » Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:46 pm

Does age have an impact on someone's acceptance to law schools? I will not be applying until I am 34-35 yrs old based on my current timeline. I will be applying for all the T14, and will attend wherever I am accepted with the most scholarship money.

No, it won't matter. Some students who are K-JD might have a tougher time depending on the school, but you have nothing to worry about. It's possible that you could get a small boost, but that is not dependent on your age, but rather your experience and what you can bring to law school diversity.
