Hello Lyn.  I'm 37 and just went back to college last year on a 3 yr program.  I'll warn you that it's not an easy transition back into a school setting when you're 10 ~ 15 years (or more) older than all of your class mates, but I'm still finding it a very rewarding experience.


Best of luck with your studies!
