So, in your 30's age shouldn't be a problem.
I think I'm out of the picture at my age.
My old man is a Bio PHD, same age as you exactly. He recently moved and lost his tenured position at a university. For reasons I dont want to get into here, he's back in the job market now, and finding that the competition is fucked. Universities pretty much exclusively hire 30 or 40 somethings as Assistant Profs, and since he retired and isn't doing a lateral move, he doesn't look good on paper.

28 right now in a masters program of Public Policy. I think i made a mistake, but I will be commissioning into the Army this summer, so I assume law school will be 35, 36 for me. Any thoughts or advice on people age 38 and biglaw? Glad to see the age isn't unusual.

a fireinside, Do you not want to be all you can be? I was a captain in the army. I joined at 27 and got out of active duty at 31. If you don't want to join you can probably still get out of it if you haven't been sworn in yet.

I'm 21, 22 when I start, but I feel like I'm 60 and I know what I want. Feel like retiring and riding a yacht around the Bahamas for the next 10 years or so.

I have goals, and I like this site a lot.
haha I remember lurking this site back in the day.
Just keep your gpa high in college and start studying for the LSAT in 3 years. Otherwise please do us a favor and have some fun before you start worrying about law school.

Due to my philosophical sensibilities I would have to say I am (as are all of you) as old as the universe since matter can neither be created nor destroyed. Relativistic physics notwithstanding, who cares? Joking... 31. I'll be 34 when I graduate and intend to put in 30 years then retire at 64 to fish and spong-dive in Greece.
