  • Sure, if it was something I really wanted and could afford. There is no age that is too old to go to college.

  • sure why not? you could live for another 40+ years, working for about 20 of those at least so that degree would be well used

  • Depends on the second bachelors degree type, if it's something totally different then yes.


    If you are continuing with the same studies then I think going for the masters would be a wise things to do.
