Hello, long story short, I had applied to the masters in computer science program at a state college about 9 years ago, before it had begun I withdrew from all of my classes mainly due to freaking out about the cost, amount of work, adjusting to college life again, etc. Yes I messed up, but now I’m in my mid 30’s and feel compatiable of doing it. I’m always going to wonder “what if I had gone” .
During that time I just worked in IT support and took some community college classes. I was also concerned about ageism in technology. I’m truly thinking that it’s just too late, and too much of an uphill battle to overcome and should just let it go. I was never really a school person as it took me 7 years to get my BA and I almost got kicked out due to academic probabtion. I do have some depression and anxiety problems. I do not have a computer science background, so I would have to take all the presequites than I could be admitted into the masters program.
Thoughts? I’m ready for some brutal honesty.
