  • I just graduated at the top of my class in June of this year and I'm 43. It was such a wonderful experience and has given me a huge opportunity in a wonderful job for a top 10 employer in my area. I never dreamed I could be this successful at my age, but I did it and I'm damned proud! It also set a great example for my teen DD who is a senior and gave her the will that if Mom can do it (top of the class), then there's no reason why I can't try, too. So far, her grades have shot up to the top and I'm proud to have been such a great influence on her as well.

    So, going back to school for me has had a HUGE positive result in my life and I would recommend anyone doing it.

  • I'm a stay at home mom with her Master's degree. :-) It's never too late or early... and it'll always come in handy.

  • I want to go to college. Just not bad enough to make it work yet. But it's going to happen within 5 years.

  • I'd like to be able to finish my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and work on my Masters and as soon as I have the funds, I will be doing just that.

    I like going. I miss it. I try to take continuing ed classes that spark my interest whenever I can.

    Congratulations to the ones who have done and good luck to those who are thinking about or currently going. I think it's a great thing to do.

  • I'm in school. No currently, but, waiting till next fall, for the next go round with the Nursing program. I like being in school, being productive or at least working towards being productive. I'm less depressed when I'm in school.
