  1. Thanks for the suggestion. I guess for now I’m just wanting a sense of how likely I’ll be to get funding. Then assuming it’s possible, I’ll get started on the work of studying and applying to the school.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. This sounds like pretty solid advice. I had planned to continue in uni and finish my BA and apply for a masters program. I love to research and critique. My love for arguments was what directed my attention to law. On one hand doing research and thinking/playing with ideas and information seems wonderful, that said, being able to use my critical thinking skills and love for analyzing information in ways that directly helps others would ultimately be more fulfilling. If you have any suggestions on what type of research might be helpful in making a decision I’d be happy to know. I realize that lawyers can do very different work so I’m reluctant to reach out and speak to any directly. Another thought, do you think my age will hurt my chances of finding work?
  3. Hi, thanks for sharing this. That’s great to know. I’ll make a plan to speak with my bank next week. My credit score is in the “Good” category according to Equifax so I hope I’d be a favourable candidate also.
  4. 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.
