I think she should skate as long as she can. She can always go to college but she can't always skate. If she can do both, great.

A degree in cat herding is even more useless than a degree in English. :P Both are exercises in futility.

Tell that to program coordinator Marion Krijgsman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV-fs4aEsrY&t=2m38s)! :P

That's the last of it, I promise.

Glad to hear she'll at least be dabbling or maybe more. That's great! She should skate and tour while she still can, and try to see what may interest her in school so she can pursue it when the skating tapers off.

O-

ITA! I think that college will be very good for her. She'll be able to explore a lot of different fields before settling on a second career.

I think it would be really hard to be a 27-year-old freshman at NYU. The New School would be better, imo.

But there are freshman in their 30's, 40's, 50's, and 70's in college all the time. You just need to have the desire-and be young at heart. :D

I once met a 54 year old medical student. Just saying.

I think Sasha said that she wanted to go to college while she was close to the same age as her classmates because she wants the whole college experience.

Good-luck to Sasha! I always enjoyed her skating, so wish her the best.

I think that it is great that she is going to college. She looked fabulous on the "Today" show..I like her hair.

Absolutely. My comment was NYU-specific. My opinion is that it's not the easiest place to be a non-traditional undergrad student (i.e. not 18-years-old).

Best of luck to Sasha.

Not sure I see what's so difficult about NYU for a 27-year-old, especially one who looks like she's still a teenager. NYU is in the middle of Manhattan, where students can move in whatever circles they desire, college-related or otherwise. It's probably the most urban campus in America (if you can even consider it a campus), with classes in high-rise buildings, dorms in hotels, and a large number of students who live off campus. It isn't as if this is a school in a "college town" in the middle of nowhere where all students live in on campus.

Sasha was accepted to the Paul McGhee Division of NYU. It is specifically for adult students.

I completely disagree. The feel of NYU vs.Columbia is like night and day IMHO. A walk thru wash sq can really feel like you've stumbled into a high school sr. class trip IMO.

ITA. In regards to what others think, don't knock it. I took online courses in 2009 related to my profession to become certified and licensed. I was 49 then.

I took another course this year (not online) to become certified which is related to the job I now have. I believe that no one's ever too old to further their education. It keeps the mind alert and alive. :) :respec:

It's good that Sasha is going to college to further her education ... no matter what the reason is. :)

Most of us actually have to be constantly learning to keep our professional status active, licenses valid, etc... and for people of my generation at least, a mid-life career change is almost the norm so tons of people go back to school in their mid-life years.
