Is it pointless to go back to college for 10 years at 30 yrs old?


It's been a crazy year for me with a lot of really weird events. Plus with me turning 30 this year I started looking at my life. I always wanted a degree in Archaeology or Anthropology but never got it. I am now seriously considering going back to school, but it will likely take me 10 years to finish. Is it even worth it at this point?

    Thanks. I guess my concern would be that I'd be 40ish before getting done and that just seems a bit late for such a big career change!

    I meant that you have more concrete and solid goals now THAN when you were younger.
