    I’m in my 30s and seriously considering going back to school. I have the financial resources. Will that be enough for top ranked programs or will they be turned off by my age? I’m worried I’ll be older than many of the professors.

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    You will find plenty of older, or non traditional, graduate school students in top-ranked programs across the country. Be sure to stress to the programs what diverse perspectives you have to contribute to the learning environment. A don’t worry about being older than some of the professors because they certainly won’t be worried if they’re younger than you!

    Best of luck with your applications!

    I started college at age 16 at a community college. I wasn’t focused and had a 2.8 GPA. My GPA at my four year college is 3.8 a full point higher. How will graduate schools view my applications?

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    First of all, you are welcome to call us for a complimentary assessment that examines your candidacy from a holistic point of view.

    However, to answer your question directly, it appears you should be able to explain your situation to the admissions committees and get them to focus more heavily on the more recent GPA at the four-year college. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you want professional help with this.

    Best of luck with your applications!
