I thought college -aged meant 18-21 years of age, or 18-24 years of age. Not people in their 30s. Please help.

@JGoldman10,
So would you refuse access to college for people 25+.And remember too there are those extremely gifted people who can succeed in college even if they have not reached 18.

@PaddyH,
I didn't say that. when most people think of College-aged people they think of people 18-24 years old. I want to go back to college-age has nothing to do with furthering your education.

@JGoldman10,
Ah... but you forget..
College isn't just undergraduate work

4-5 years of undergraduate
2 years for Masters
another 4-5 years for Phd.

And then to take a year or 2 off between or a second degree, 30 is not unreasonable for college aged.

@JGoldman10,
People are now waiting with bated breath to hear what the first was for.

@PaddyH,
I'm an artist- I went to school for animation. I want to go back to get a degree in Illustration/Cartooning so I can go into comics, or pursue some other venue to get the training I need to get my comics going.

It's a little annoying to me that people look at me and say I'm college aged when I am much older than 18-24, or 25.

@JGoldman10,
I wish people would look at me and think that way, instead I picture the "thought cloud",used by animators, of them thinking "I wonder how long ago senile decay set in?"

@PaddyH,
Comic book artists use thought balloons. I'm not a senior citizen yet.

If someone refers to "college-aged" people, they typically mean 18-22 years old. Of course other-aged people attend college, but the no-brainer, common-sense reference would be the age of people when they traditionally, normally go off to university.

If someone is mistaking you for younger than your years, enjoy it while you can.

@snood,
I find it insulting people compare me to people who are at least 10 years younger than me. I am a GENERATION OLDER than those people. What do I have in common with THOSE PEOPLE?

Perhaps your speech or actions.

@ossobuco,
I use high-falutant vocabulary. People don't care if I am a Christian, or if I have a high IQ, or what my interests are. I don't say a word, and people label me as a nerd or geek. And they judge me based on age.

@JGoldman10,
I went back to school at 40 for another four years. Don't whine at me, I don't have patience for it - I agree with a previous poster (not looking back just now, but that was a good post) about coming into one's own the next time around in schooling.

@ossobuco,
That's NOT WHINING. That's making a statement.
