Advice for Early College Grads Weighing Law School

While most law students are in their early- to mid-20s, others run the gamut from recent college graduates to older students looking to change careers or reenter the workforce. Older applicants face unique considerations because of their age and life circumstances. At the opposite end of the spectrum, applicants still in college have to weigh the advantages of getting a head start in their legal education against the benefits of gaining work experience first.
At the far end of the spectrum are very young applicants who completed their undergraduate degrees in adolescence, often accelerated by taking community college classes, summer courses or Advanced Placement exams in high school. Starting law school before a student is old enough to legally drink is exceptional but not unprecedented. However, there are good reasons why such young applicants might consider taking a gap year or two before starting law school.
