do you think it's weird when people get braces late high school? shouldn't they be done by then?

    Not at all.  My daughter was in her late 30's when she got hers.

    No. You can get them whenever you want or can afford to do so. And I find your question to be somewhat elitist. You worry about your health and cosmetic issues and let other people do the same. It has zero effect on you when a person has braces

    Braces aren’t really necessary anymore. Most people use a Myobrace now.  Much easier and less expensive.

    It only makes sense to get it after your teeth are fully grown in.

    No.  I've heard, if people get them too early it can cause a problem with receding gums

    Not really.  Braces are REALLY expensive, and the parents can't afford it.  Plus, some people's teeth don't stop growing until junior or senior year.

    Because they couldn't afford it at the time

    Not really no.  I work at a hospital and we have RN's with braces.  It's never too late to fix your teeth!
