I think people in this thread are forgetting the massive difference between being 23 and 24. That 1 year difference is MASSIVE.

24 is a great age to start. Kids who never worked for even a year don't know anything and it shows.

I personally think it's too young. Almost everyone I know that went to law school right after college or shortly thereafter says it was an extremely short sighted decision and wish they either never went or waited a couple years to work in the real world and see if they truly wanted to go to law school and be a lawyer.

You could be like this lady at my law school. She's somewhere in the neighborhood of 50, and handwrote all of her exams our first year of law school. Got top paper in Torts I, but nothing else even remotely resembling an A in anything else. She attended a cocktail function one of the firms holds for law students, and some of the partners asked her who among us was the son/daughter she was chaperoning.

We have another guy at my law school who is also in his 50's. He's from out of state, and left his wife and three kids behind to go to law school. He tries to cheat on his wife all the time with the female students, but, so far, none of them have been drunk/stressed/desperate enough to submit themselves to his laughingly pathetic advances. He also wears Adidas slip on sandals every day no matter the weather--rain, snow, temperatures below freezing. I've wanted to leave a pair of shoes in his locker so he'd get the hint, but I don't have the combination.

What does this mean for you? Absolutely nothing. I just wanted to vent in a consequence-free environment.

PS 24 isn't too old. I started when I was 26. Age has not been a factor in school, dating, or job offers.
