    So, I will have to spend less time on this board. Please pray for me to have discipline, I'm going to need it.

    You know what, the older you get the easier college is. Life experience is SO helpful, especially the part about professors expecting certain things from you, and you delivering. I remember when I was younger I spend a lot of the time making excuses for why things were late. Get in there, and get 'er done! :D

    Congrats to you and Best of Luck in your educations quest.

    I got my degree when I was well over 60 and while it was difficult to get back into the school mode you'll find you have better work habits and a broader view that the younger students. Now, hit the books, May in Jersey

    Congrats and I agree being an older student is easier, and I found that for history, I remembered a lot of the events lol.

    Welcome to the world of school...I have been back in school for almost 2 years now. I thought I was crazy to go back at 48yrs. But it has been fun and I can see the light at the end of my tunnel. Good luck and just keep plugging away. You can do it.

    I went back to school when I was 35,for my accounting degree.. i was 3 years of long work but paid off.. .Especially for my kids, when they saw how hard it was to work full time , raise family with my wonderful husband and go to school full time.. they both decided to stay in school and get their degrees while they were young and we were financing them....
    I must say it was the best decision i ever made!! I would have never wanted it bad enough to do the work when I was younger.. Good Luck ,, you can do this .. I'm routing for you in my little corner of the world .. you go girl!!!! :lol:

    I grad HS in '67, college in '03. There are College Level Exam Programs (CLEP) tests that I was able to take for credit for about 10 courses. They only cost about $60 at the time I took them and they were great for the first 2 years of general level courses. You might be surprised how much you have learned from living! They offer books with practice tests and if you can pass the practice tests, you'll ace the CLEP test. I was even able to use the one for beginning English and composition, that was 6 credits right there. If you want more info you can PM me or talk to your guidance counselor and good luck and have fun!!
