I've recently been considering going to law school for the first time but I'm already a sophomore in college. Is it too late to just now be thinking about law school?
It is NEVER too late to think about law school. A lot of people come to law school as a second career - and bring their life and experiences with them to the practice of law.
A lot of my classmates had gap years as well. They applied for law school after they graduated college and spent a year or two working depending on how many application cycles it took for them to get into the school that was the right fit for them.
If you’re truly considering law school, focus on maintaining an upward trajectory of your grades. Go to a used bookstore and buy used LSAT prep books and used SAT or AP English prep books (I attribute my success in the LSAT reading comprehension sections to old AP English prep). Take your time getting a feel for the materials before you book your first test, and do not be afraid to take it twice. The exam is brutal - 7 hours + - and a lot of people do better the second time around simply because they know what to expect.
The beautiful thing about law school is that you could go and spend half a life away exploring your passion and law school would always be there as an option whenever you decided you wanted to revisit it.
