    And I thought my 9 years of part time college with full time work were a long time!

    I graduated from the University of Houston in 2002 when I was fifty years old. I know it's tough; my hats off to Troy!

    Every state college system is under great strain and many are cutting classes and reducing classroom space for young people who will need jobs for the next 40 years. I have have ethical doubts about people who are very close to or over retirement age displacing young people who need the jobs in the classrooms. A person who graduates at age 50 will probably need to work for another 20 years in the coming Bush Depression but if a person well over 60 is sucking down tax money for their education . . . if going to a private school and paying the tuition - more power to you.
