  • Absolutely not. I went back to college when I was 45. I was wondering if it was too old, but then I found out that my aunt went back when she was 60! I had such admiration for her. It gave me the courage. You go girl!

  • absolutely not! That's how old I'll probably be when I finally have the money to go pursue the degree I REALLY want! Good luck!

  • No, why would it be?
    You're only too old for more education when you're dead, IMO.

    Think about it. If it takes you 2 years to get your bachelors, you'll be 35, right?
    So, how old will you be in two years if you don't get it? 35, and no bachelors.

    You make the choice! (but I know what I'd do if I could!)
