Yes, I would still continue. Ambitions in life does not require any age for its fulfillment. It's never too late to go back to school. Even if I would reach the age of thirty and above, I would still go back to school because it is my ambition to earn a degree for my self.

no one is too young or too old for education. remember our parents are working very hard for us to finish school why because EDUCATION is the only treasure that cannot be taken away from you. if you die do they include your money in your resting place? but the course/degree you finished usually put in your marker ex. Dr.. Atty, etc. so continue your eduaction specially now in asian countries where 2nd courses for graduates are now a flourishing education. so why hesitate 2 years is not to longg but it can change your life, work and it will make your parents more proud of you

thank you for that enlightening advice. i am considering going back, or say pushing myself to go back lol hope i do get to finish when i start because the last 2 semesters i enrolled, i wasn't able to finish the whole term that's why i stopped since i was already wasting my tuition fees.

Of course! I stopped going to school last 2001 since I have to move here in California for good. I returned to school last year and until now I am still attending college. Tuition here is way too expensive compared there. However, I believe that having a college education is worthy! I just regret that I didn't return to school sooner. Anyway, nothing is impossible if you're willing to try. Goodluck!

My nephew is doing his research in Michigan and as a partime job, he teaches and he told us that there is no age limit for studying in US. Even the elderly persons come for studying. I do not think elsewhere that kind of thing happens. Here in India, many dropouts from the college would like to take up distance education by studying through internet and appearing for exams. I am not a drop out, but I suggest people to do distance education without going to college.

i have also been looking for schools that offer distance education ever since i stopped going to school, but i can't just find any available here in the Philippines. Only masters degree or 2nd courses are being offered. hope i can find one

It would be hard to go back but I would! Everyone can benefit from additional education, even if they already have a great job. I stopped going to school last year and I'm hopeing to go back next year. Its important to me to continue my education even though I have a great job with a good pay.

you're right, even if one has a great job and pay, you'll never know what will happen in the future and education is the only savior in case something happens to our job today.

eolivan, yes go back, two years is nothing, think about it, if you don't after two years you would be looking back and saying to yourself, if I would started two years ago, when I posted this question in MyLot,.... Ask yourself this question, " how would you want to see yourself two years from now?"

i don't think i want to be in that situation where i'm looking back and thinking of what if i started back then and i should have been finished by now. :) thanks a lot for the inspirational thoughts... hope to really finish my school

I honestly would b/c no one can ever take that degree away from you. Plus, you may find that you have more opportunities once you finish school. I also find that now you may pay more attention to school and have a better understanding of the subjects.

i do believe you there, i've experienced it now that it's harder to look for a job without having finished my school. just no opportunity available. thank you

Absolutely. It is never to late to finish or to start going to school or going to school again. It is these typesof things that keep the brain cranking and the personality growing and changing, you learn new things, you meet new people, you gain perspective.

it's really hard if you're not enjoying it, as for me, it was like getting tired, since i was past the required # of years at school, i dropped it, because it was kind of too long and like i wasn't gonna finish anymore. i was already on the 6th year because i can't find the right course for me.

Oh I think it would all depend on what you could remember whether it would be worth going back to college but if you have a good memory I think that it would be a great Idea you could always give it a try.

that's also what is giving me second thoughts, the worth of going back if i'm going to fail it or not being able to finish it again. thanks

If you have the dream go for it. There's nothing wrong with going to college and being older than the usual collegian.

Yes of course. As long as you have the chance of going back to school why not? Remember that education is the only treasure that can't be stealed from anybody. Age doesn't matter here at all.

Ive done it. I started in when I was 19, then stopped for motherhood and to go to work. I went back to college in my late 30s and finshed 2 bachelor degrees by the time I was 40. If I can do it, you can!

Ten years is a long time - maybe you can start a different course. Sometimes your credit is still in the records of the School. There are new courses in demand.
