    I'm currently 31 and will be 33 when I graduate, having recently started on my core courses for the RN program.
    I wish I had taken school a BIT more seriously in my youth, I'm really paying for that now. Much less to get out of the way now.
    Woe is me and my 20/20 hindsight, lol!

    Congratulations on your marriage!!!!'s just my humble opinion...but if you want to wait awhile before you have any children...then I suggest that you do it. I'm 29, married and have 3 children (2 dd's who are 7 and 5) and 1 son who is 14 mths. I am attending college at night and I'm a I do get lots of time to study. But with children there are just so many other responsiblilities. If you're in school without having any children you can focus on your education. Now I understand what my parents were trying to tell me......don't get me wrong....I love my children dearly and my life would be totally different without them. But if you can achieve some goals without a few loving I suggest you do it. Hope to post to you soon.

    I am 28, many in my class are returning students, which I think makes it easier, we are there to pursue our dreams so we work harder and take it more seriously than some (not all) of the fresh out of high school girls.
