It looks like there are a good handful of us heading back to the books. Speak up and tell us what you're pursuing, and where (if you are comfortable with it).

I've applied at UMass's University Without Walls to finish my journalism degree. They've had my application, essay, and transcripts for ONE WHOLE WEEK and I'm dying. I want to know NOW, before I leave for 6 weeks overseas, if I'm in. If not, I'll have to wait until I return and get new applications sent out to Penn State and a few others for January's term.

ONE WHOLE WEEK. Jeez, guys.

I'm of a mind that people are NEVER too old to learn.

I got my BS in accounting and my MBA as an adult (finished my MBA when I was 38).
My husband, after losing his job 2 years ago is a student at the age of 46. He never enjoyed school and would have been the last person his family thought would be in college, but he's just a few months away from a degree in IT.

I've rec'd a Pell grant and a state scholarship. There may be more scholarships I receive, they haven't decided on them all yet. I'd like to get a BS in psychology and go on to a MS.

That's great news Thren! How exciting.

I'm doing an Honours BA in history. Hoping to do an MA and move on to post-doctoral so I can access research contract work post-retirement.

I'm never happier than when I'm sitting in an archive surrounded by old paper.

I'm doing a MPS in Paralegal Studies at George Washington Univ. in DC, concentrating in lgl research and writing.

Post D, with a BS in Art, I needed to switch fields so I almost finished an associates in paralegal studies, litigation tract…then decided I liked it so much, I'd earn my MS.

On-line grad school is not for the faint of heart. But so worth it!

I am into my third year of a doctorate in clinical psychology, hoping to graduate in 2 more. It feels so good to be putting my experience of raising a special needs kid and the hell of infidelity into helping others.

I'm still working on an undergrad degree in what is probably going to be English.

Hoping I can get money to continue for next semester...

after talking with you about this at the g2g, I took a look at the UMass site to see if it would work for finishing my journalism degree. Ultimately I decided that while I do want to finish my degree, I don't really want a journalism degree any more. UH now has a Communications degree which would give me more options, if my old journalism credits would transfer to the newer options. Something I need to look into. Thanks for the nudge.

Holy crap, you people are smart. I just want to be an inky-fingered scribbler. You're, like, doing stuff with your brains.

And Faith, I feel you on the "old paper" thing. My focus is central/eastern Europe, and I've been combing through online archives of newspapers when I find them. There's a lot more out there, though, and part of what I'm doing in Budapest is going to the libraries to look at the old newspapers and documents about various events. I honestly cannot wait to get started. I warned my hosts that I'm going to come home exhausted and grinning like the village idiot each night. Archives make me rowr.

I took my first college class just before turning 30. I had a two year old, a new born, and an 8 year old at the time.

My XH and I split before I finished my BS.

After getting my teaching certificate, I got a Masters. I started a Ph.D. program in 2005 and finished it in 2010, at age 51. I work with so many college students every day that are "going back to school." It almost seems more normal to me than those who go to college (and complete it) right out of high school.

I'm at the almost end of my first semester ever. I'm majoring in social work, and I am attending Edinboro Univeristy.

Very part time, though. we're talking 2 classes at time.
