So, I knew as soon as I filed for D that I would be heading back to school. I have a liberal arts degree which is no good for actually finding employment. So, I'm looking to go into the medical field. I just signed up for my first class in the Spring. I'm so nervous about going back to school. It's been about 14 years since I graduated with my first degree! I'm starting out slow, but still nervous about juggling it all.

I went back to school too…it is different than the "first go 'round", but I've found I am a much better student!

You can do this!! It really is different after you have had some real life experience. I went back to school at 52. It has been wonderful.

Good for you!

I took a 'semester off' from pursuing my Bachelor's when my second child was born... 13 years later I finished it, at the age of 40.

Now I am six classes away from getting my MBA with Accounting concentration.

I know from personal experience that going back after so long can be a scary thing. But it's AWESOME you're taking that leap!! And you'll do great!!! Just believe in YOU honey!!

Best advice I got when I went back was NOT to compare yourself/grade/study habits with what you did last go-round.

In many case, you did not have the same challenges and stressors as today (divorce, kids, etc).

He told us not to focus on being the best....but focus on being the best you can be at this point of your life.

Don't get me wrong - I did not take it as an excust to be lax. I still went through my D, took accelerated program, running my house single, FT job, battling the stalker ex and raising 2 kids and stayed on the Dean's List the entire time. BUT when I was freakin' over stuff.....I remembered what he said and cut myself some slack.

Good luck!!!
