I’m 42 and returned to uni a few years ago full time to finish a BA. I’ve recently considered writing the LSAT and applying to a local school. Luckily it’s one with a pretty low tuition.
I’m relatively confident that I’ll be accepted based on my grades and LSAT score (I’ll have to see how that goes to be sure). This is a very new idea for me and because of my age, I’m hoping to consider financial options and future implications before moving forward.
I’ve come to accept the fact that I’ll likely need to work until I’m 80, I’m single and during my previous career didn’t save much. To be honest I was miserable and spent more than I should have. My finances were a problem but after many years of hard work I’ve resolved those issues and am pursuing things I’m interested in.
I currently have ~$10,000 in student loans and am looking into options for funding law school. I see some students get lines of credit based on their admission to law school and wonder if the ability to access them is based on your age. Would I be ineligible because I have fewer years left to work?
I’m interested to hear any of your ideas or thoughts that may be helpful for me to make an informed decision. Thanks 🙏
I’m not committed to staying in my city, although I’d prefer not to move until after completing a JD program. I am open to a move after, either within Canada or somewhere warmer.
