For the older college graduates, did finishing at a later age mean more? If so, why?
I was thinking about this past May when I received my Masters degree. Finishing college this year had a deeper impact in my life, than starting school just out of high school.
Yes, I think that it was more meaningful because I chose to sacrifice a full time wage to go back into education. Whereas a lot of younger people make the choice because it is the natural progression route. I gave up a lot to get my qualification, so it definitely meant more!
