Older (53+) Law Students at T14??

I'am depressed and anxious... Does anybody know anyone who was accepted to T-14 as an older (again, 53+ years old) applicant? If one had all the right numbers (LSAT and GPA at or above 50% of those accepted), do you think age would preclude them from being accepted? Does anyone know?!!

    It's not business school.. There is relatively little to no age discrimination. If you've got the numbers and other qualifications then you're good to go. There are people in their 60s and 70s that get into the T14.

    No problem, I've talked to consultants about this issue before and you have nothing to worry about.

    While you are unlikely to encounter discrimination in the admissions process, your age will preclude you from certain jobs. If you want to go to law school for the academic pursuit or to aid you in your current business, that's great, but Biglaw is likely out of the question. Just study hard and ace the LSAT, and you should be good to go. Best of luck!
