Ok, so after months of trying to decide...and with some helpful feedback from here...I filed my paperwork...and was accepted in the Chemistry program!!
I'm still feeling "old" (31) to be starting this program, but my heart and head keep wanting to learn all the chem, math, and physics that I can squish in my noggin'...it's what I enjoy and I want to have a happy and fulfilling life - despite the age I'm starting at. I'll just have to keep telling myself that! (Easier said than done).
As for after the B.S. is done...THAT I haven't decided. And won't even try for a couple years...grad school, doctoral programs and medical school all sound interesting... I'll just 'dream' on that for now.
Thanks for the help!
Returned to college after many years away...enjoying it, but struggling to learn. :)
hey kace, yours is the first post i saw so i'm saying hello here first. the important thing for you is that your heart is still in it, and hopefully the younger students that read this are inspired by your will. great job.
You are only 31! There are tons of people in that age range going back to school every day! Good luck to you and donít let your age discourage you from doing what you want to do and keep you from being your best. Age is just a number!
