    I am no doctor, but my guess would be no.  Of course, anything is possible.

    I would think no as well. I am almost 5' 4" at 24 years old, I have not grown taller since I was 13 years old. I'm pretty sure the next stage is shrinking down in old age.

    It's possible, but extremely rare. The epiphyseal plates usually "close up," or ossify as much as they ever will, somewhere between teens and early twenties. It's almost unheard of to still be growing at 27, except in the case of a small number of growth disorders.
