I went back to college when I was 28. I had the time of my life. What about you?

i feel i'd be fairly happy to be normal with the system. Doing up with my graduation at the most at the age of 21 or 22. After that i can think of working.. for sometime.. and then studying side by side.. (MBA after B.Tech)

I started college just after my 17th birthday. I went for 2 years and then I had to move out of my parents house and couldn't afford to go anymore. I just started back again in 2005 - at the age of 25. I have been back 2 years now and I'm doing great - straight A's... and I definately appreciate my schooling, classes and teachers a lot more.

Traditional as going to college right after high school? Well, then I'm only a partially traditional student. I joined the military right after HS graduation and after boot, I immediately enrolled in night classes. I was the youngest student there at 18 years old. The next youngest was 25, while the oldest was 72. It was a great learning experience. A few years later, I had the opportunity to attend a few "normal" classes with the rest of the students, but never got much out of that experience as I did at the night classes. Now that I'm almost 40, I'm taking on-line Master's courses with the goal of earning a teaching certificate. Its never to late to learn something new.

I'd say that I'm non-traditional. I've been working on an associate's degree for over 4 years when it's supposed to be a 2 year degree. I still haven't gotten my degree yet, but I'm close. I just have 1 incomplete course that I need to finish over the summer and hopefully I'll get my degree after that. I guess I could never handle being a full time student which is why it's taking me so long to finish. I know that some people are full time students and they work as well. I know one girl specifically who goes to school, has a job, and also has a kid too! I'm just in awe of people who can do all that because I have never been able to. ~Kythe42 http://lemurianphoenix.blogspot.com
