3 year Bachelor's, certified genius, or both? 😉

Anyone 30+?? 😅😅

Go with your heart and don't let the statistics deter you. 

 

The heart desires what the heart wishes to have. The only question for you is how strongly do you want it. 

I recently "ran" into This person. Read his multiple career change at https://kenliu.name/about/

Even if one is 30/40/50 years old, so what?

Even if someone discriminate based on age, so what?

 

Know what you desire and have faith in yourself. 

 

The uglier the obstacles are, the more glory to you.

Absolutely! Ive been on a journey that only five years ago I couldn't have even imagined. Academics were never in the cards for me, but I had the will to make it happen which only developed through growing older. I would never let my age deter me, especially this far along. Thanks for the kind words

I am 38 now; so, when I start my legal studies at uOttawa law next September, I will be 39 years-old. 

I am an immigrant from a non-English-speaking country, and came to Canada eight years ago. (At that time, I could not speak English at all.)

As Canadian employers did not recognize my foreign degrees, I have redone my HBA and obtained two MA degrees since 2011.

Why am I going to law school in such an old age?

My possible answer is to give a fancy life to my dear wife and son?? 🤔

A law degree is no guaranteed ticket to a "fancy" life. There a chance you could have even made more/as much with your MA degrees. Not to mention another 3 years of lost income.

I know! Using the term, "a fancy life," was my joke, friend!! Why so serious?

I was 25 or 26 when I first applied. Been a long journey to prepare an elite application so I'm hoping this is the year.

Never thought I'd ever see pick up line on this forum before. Man what a story that would be if things worked out!

Hey kids, I was freaking out about law school one day and while on an online forum I flirted with someone I met online. We kept in touch, met up one day, and that kids is the story how I met your mother.
