    I graduated college at 40 and it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I was so afraid of being the oldest kid in my class, but there were other adult students there as well; and it turned out that we were the ones who wrecked the curve. Adult students just get so much more out of it and put that much more into it. You will excel, I am sure of it.

    Remember.........everyone is scared........well everyone who is new is scared.

    I have gone to the campus a few times, and even I was nervous - I always get lost trying to find places when the area is crowded and busy.

    I returned to school a few years back 16 years after high school. it is odd the first couple of classes, but then you will fall right into a groove. Only tough part was me was having to work with all the little 18 year old boys and girls when a group project thing came up.[​IMG]

    Yeah that first day always bites the big one lol. I've had a ton of them myself, it is the anticipation for me that drives me nuts.

    What really stinks is that my two year degree is going to take five or six years because I need to work. I'm sitting on three potential jobs right now too.

    Another crummy thing is that I've reached the age where all my friends are just graduating college and I'm just starting lol
