Thread: Started back to college at age 40

    Started back to college at age 40

    I started back to college at age 40 and just finished my first semester after a twenty year layoff. I pulled a 4.0. Not bad for an old man.

  2. Congrats!
    What made you go back to college?

    I was considering doing an MBA, but eventually decided there is no point. I mean if I want to acquire knowledge can just read a book and I don't see myself ever looking for a job

    Well, I can definitely see why would people want that, but nah not me
    I do like studying however.

    One thing I can tell is it's hard to get back to studying after a long break, first time its always tough, but gets much easier

    So good luck!

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    As I recall college (bearing in mind the early years are still an fuzzy alcoholic blur) it was always those darned "old" guys that screwed up the curve for everyone by wasting time studying when they could have been at a keg party. Selfish bastards screwed it up for all of us by attending classes, reading the assigned text, and all sorts of things that made the playing field less level.

    I'd love to go back and go for an advanced degree and do the professor role... gotta love having a captive audience. Unfortunately the Biz field is where my undergrad degree is and if I was going to teach it'd pretty much have to be History or Poli-Sci to be any fun. I was fortunate to have great History profs for the classes I didnt place out of... they made it come to life. It's great to have teachers that enjoy the material.

    Good luck on your studies. Personally I'd say it's a cool thing.

    Looks like we're both sailing the same boat.

    The only difference is, i'm 18 and i'm being FORCED to go to college.

    The only thing I hate is a bunch of dim-wits coming and lecturing about business and entrepreneurship when they don't know shit about it.

    Honestly, like Will says it - What's the point in you paying someone to certify that you're good when you know that yourself.
