Early On !

I did not attend college due to financial reasons and also thought it isn't for me .. But as I grow older I am thinking I might attend just to get a degree with all the experience from the Army ! I think it will be cool to go back and see what it could have been like !

UPDATE.................Plans have changed and I will be taking a few class Spring 2012 !

Thanks all !

Lilt I am undecided at the moment, but am leaning toward computers......Will see what the results of my placement were !

Em I understood what you were saying !!!!! lol!

Emerald thank you, and I fully agree, as I feel I will have more interest in being in college, than years ago !

Thank you WiB ! Same for you as well !

Fantastic Chris! What are thinking about studying?

I meant proffessors faults... *smacks forehead*...

Everyone thinks it's better to go at a younger age due to retaining the info. But the older adults have one advantage... they don't take the college education for granted! They're there to actually learn, study, and explore. The socializing and partying isn't the main importance anymore. And as I get older I've come to realize that subjects that bored me in school and college, I find now fascinating! Perhaps part of that is the proffessors parts, but perhaps some of that is the maturity in seeing the value of each subject. :) Good luck!

I just started back at college myself chris ... doing a post-graduate diploma ... best of luck with your course!!

Thanks freeinsc , I start this spring !

I never finished getting my degree so I decided to go back many years later cause we had a situation where you could work during the day and go 3 nights a week. I didn't do well when I was young cause I was too busy partying but I got all A's when I went back as an "old person." <br />
Have you started yet?

Thank you sneha6661 already applied !

Why certainly especially with you ! Oh Baby !

Well, look no further... I can help with math but you already have some of that down like 2 + 4 - ROFL!!

Awe Dorothy that is very sweet ! As a matter of fact I am looking for a tutor !

Now that is exciting to read!! It won't be the same as it would have been when you were young and single, but it will be a great experience regardless, I think! I loved college and it was a great experience BUT, I probably would have done much better if I had been older and more focused on what I truly wanted to do with my life! You are older and more focused - you know me, I am all for it if it is something you want to do!<br />

You know, if you do that, you are probably going to need a private tutor for some subjects... just sayin'!
