Older, but not terribly mature

I had a lot of complications with my pregnancy starting right at the get go. I won’t distress you with the details, but I was in and out of the hospital a lot. There was a lot of paperwork involved, and right on top of each section was the warning “Advanced Maternal Age.” But I am only 35! I would protest. It’s not like I was that 60 year old woman who just had twins. But there it was in black and white, an older mother.

Now that I have been admitted to law school, I keep getting these emails from one of the universities where I have been accepted. Apparently they have a group for students like me, its “the Older and Wiser group.” I just got an email from them today. My first reaction was, “gasp”, and them “f***ck u!” I’m so not going to that school.

By the way, I did decide on a school, one without and older law students’ league. I sent in my first deposit today. It still doesn’t feel real. I’ll believe it when I sign the promissory note for the 100,000 loan.

LOL, "Older and Wiser"??? I have you beat by more than 10 years and I still wouldn't fit in on either count. Congratulations on law school.

I went back to grad school in my thirties and it was a really wonderful experience. You will enjoy it and have an edge that the twenty-somethings can't match.

When did this happen?

how come no one consulted me?

I also did grad school later. It was easier because I was wiser but harder because people needed me outside of school.

I did grad school at 30 and enjoyed it so much more than if I had been young! Congrats!
