    Adults of 35+:  Has beginning college for the 1st time or returning, been especially difficult?

    Adults 35 years and up:  If you have begun college for the first time in life or have returned to college, what are the biggest challenges/ obstacles you are currently experiencing or have been faced with?   Also, how "Bumpy" was the entry or re-entry emotionally, technologically, physically & mentally?  Please describe your experiences to the fullest.  Thanks!

    I would have to say that it can be very difficult to get into school for the first time, I am 40 and am going back.  Many of the students are much younger then me and I often find myself in role model situations, so along with the stress of going to school the other students expect you to have your act together and provide assistance to them when they need it.  That said school is very doable even later in life, our school had a 80 year old graduate last year, so it is possible.
