There are plenty of students I know that are on the older side. It is not rare or too uncommon.

at my previous college, there were more older students in my program than there were younger.

I'm about 2 semesters away from getting my B.S. in Mathematics.

do not get a Liberal Arts degree. They are a waste of money and you will never find a job.

This is mostly true. Many of my students are "non traditional" and the tend to be at the top of the class. Education is never a bad investment even in the Liberal Arts.

I went back to college like 5 years out of high school and I am so happy I did. I was in a different place in life and therefore pretty much over partying and just stuck to school work. I worked my nads off from the get go and graduated with a 3.7 from a really tough business program.

This is simply not true. Most of the people i know who are university educated are gainfully employed regardless of discipline.

I went to college right out of high school for Criminal Justice. Now I'm back in school again, this time in Art School for photography. I first started college 15 years ago and started again nearly a year ago. It's really different that way you look at things. I didn't do so hot back then but now I make straight As and hold a 3.9 average. I know what it's like in the real world and treat my classed and teachers as if they were jobs and my clients. Grades are like pay checks and I want the most I can get.

This guy does not know what he is talking about. Liberal arts degree holders are people who spent their time taking classes like "finger painting 2047" and "hugs 4321". They did not challenge themselves in college, they just wasted tax payer dollars using Federal Financial Aid with no ability repay society when they graduate.

Like most here I bombed the semester of JuCo right out of high school. I took 8 years off before going back to get my BS in Management. Five years after getting that I enrolled in graduate school and will get my MBA next month. Keep at it, work hard, and don't listen to anyone who says you can't do it.
