"According to research from the Council of Graduate Schools, the average age of graduate students in the U.S. is 33 years old. This number has remained stagnant over the past few decades, going back to the ’90s. Their study shows that 22% of graduate students are over 40 years old; of this number, 14% are between the ages of 40 and 50, while 8% are older than 50 years old."

Going back to school as an older adult was way better for me because I had narrowed down what I wanted to study through work experience.

I burned through a few majors, colleges and overall cash trying to figure it out right after high school.

I plan on going back before age 50. I was thinking about studying law or getting a doctorate in something.
