Going back to school after decades is a real experience - in many ways.
I started law school two months before turning 55 and graduated at the age of 57.
Although it is strongly recommended that students not work while attending law school, especially during the first year, I didn't have that luxury. My classes were night, late afternoon and Saturday ones.
People often ask what it was like being an older or non-traditional student.
Well, here's what I noticed as the biggest difference. With those evening sessions, my classmates couldn't wait to get out of class to have a beer.
I couldn't wait to get out of class to go to the bathroom!
It's an age thing!
