  • Anybody Start College Late ?

    Ok Well I'll Be 20 This Summer And I Have A Buddy Whos 22 And We Both Decided We Would Like To Go To College As Were Sick Of These 7 Am Factory Jobs ! Except Im Embarrassed Because Being A 20 Year Old Freshman Or 22 In My Buddys Case Seems Weird !

    Did Anybody Else Start Late And If So How Was It ?

    Also Do You Think It Would Look Bad On Future Job Applications That You Waited 3 Or 4 Years To Start College ?

    You think thats bad? I started college when I was 26, ended up quitting after about 2 months. They were all waaaaaaaaay too yound, that and I didnt really like the course. I hung out with this 17 yr old guy in my class. He couldnt even come to the pub on a class night out cause he was underage. Sucked. Being 20 is not that bad, most ppl in your class will be 17+.

    When you are applying for jobs the way to explain your notable absence from the education system for a couple of years is to say you wanted to get some life experience so that you would be mature enough to enter college and take your classes seriously. Say you wanted to grow up a bit first. Say you travelled which is what I did... I travelled constantly for about 4 yrs and perspective employers like to see that you have got that out of your system and have lived a bit so therefore you will be ready to settle down and take your career seriously!

    IMO it looks better to employers. They know that someone who went to high school, then straight into college and then straight into the work force is unlikely to settle in a job right away.

                There's nothing wrong with starting late.

                Start when you want, finish when you want.
                Go when you feel like you're ready.

                I dont think it would look bad on job applications about the gap for when you went to college. There is a section to describe what it is that you did during that time and why. Some places like people that have an education and experience. No matter what, there's nothing wrong with starting late.
                Life isn't worth living if you don't have something you'd die for.


                Never attempt to change who you are to become someone you're not.

                  When I moved into my suite this year at 17, my roommate was 21, and my suitemates were 20, 25, 21, and 32.....so don't feel too weird. Most of my friends at school are in their twenties, and it's not like 20 is even old

                    i'm 21 anddd i've been going to school on and off.. usually just during Spring.. butttt.. this Spring.. i'm planning on doin it right -.- I've started going back.. andd i'm gonna stick to it.. It's NEVER TOO LATE.. wtf.. would you rather not go and end up workin at the factory for the rest of your life? .. No. Aright, now go.. and who gives a fuck if you're older than everyone in your class.. if you go to a community college, you'll see parents and people at 30yrs old and above in your classes.. so ya.. don't trip.. no one will even know you're 20.. lol.. unless you're a 20 yr old who looks like he's 28 an shit.. or you're worried that your friend is gonna make you look older because he's your battle buddy an shit.. balbalblablal k bye.

                      Started at 17 but had to stop immediatley because my mom tried to kill herself and did some serious damage.. so I had to take care of my brother and sisters .. so I started again at 21.. almost done now.

                      definitely go back.. it will only get harder or more akward if you wait and wait.. average age of a U.S. college grad is 23 anway... but so many people are 27 and 28... It's so expensive now that many people can only go one semester a year... alot of kids I know are just hoping to graduate before they are 30... it sounds funny but it's true. and besides.. I have a class where half are in there 20's and half are over 40.

                              I'm in the same boat...going back to school in september. the only shitty part is that I'll be a part-time student with a full-time job, so I may indeed be struggling to graduate before I'm 30. best of luck to you
