  • Yes?

    No, of course not. Why even ask? This implies what, that one is useless after age 29?

  • Heck no! I think it is great that you want to go on and further your education. I think "older" students are more focused on what they want to do and where they want to go in life. I'm not implying your old, by the way. Just wiser :)

  • Absolutely not! I am 49 years years old going after my 1st Bachelors. When I finish in 2 years I will go after a Masters. And...there are other people much older than I am pursuing an education! As BubbaLuva says, you are never too old!
