Hello All,

My question is :

Do people consider going back to full time school (MS) at age 30 (after having a baby)? Or Is it too late - schools won't consider?

Thank you.

A friend of mine is working on his PHD at age 57, its never too late. Also many schools will take work experience and maturity into account when reviewing credentials.

I'd probabely be looking at getting me a Bachelor's degree when I am around 30 , but not being married and having no kids gives a bit more of freedom.

If you are in a developed country, being 30 should not be a barrier to going back to university, infact it might even be helpful for example helping you gain entry as a 'mature age' student even when you do not meet some of the normal requirements.
