Is it weird to start university at 23 ?
I'm French and dropped school for 2 years without any degree, i restarted back last year and entered for a scientific 3 years high school diploma. I did one year so i still have 2 more years to go (just started 2nd year last week).
After that i'd like to go study in the US, the thing is that i'll be turning 23 on summer 2018. So i'd like to know if that'd be weird. Won't students accept me or stuffs like that ? Will i look like a moron in dorms since usually people of my age are in Masters ?
Or maybe people won't give a fuck at all cause i'll be the one who gets the drinks and shits like that ? Uni students, please tell me what you think :)
Thanks man i'm so pleased to read that. I hope that younger people in their 20s won't see my age as a barrier, i just don't wanna be too old to be able to appreciate the "university life"
Well i'm not too old for university you're right, there are people 30+ going there, there's no age to get a education. But the thing is that i'll still want to take part into parties and things like that, and i'm scared that people will be like "wow he's too old he's probably not someone you can have fun with" and other blabla like that...
Je crois les américains ils ont pleins de mecs à la fac qui commencent plus tard, parce qu'avant pour se payer la fac ils ont été faire 5 ans dans l'armée ou un truc comme ça. Donc tu seras pas trop vieux.
Par contre avoir 21 ans et être au lycée comment ça doit craindre du cul
not at all - lots of people start College later. If you do come to the US to complete your studies - call it College. If you say you're going to University people will look at you funny.
J'espère juste ne pas être trop vieux pour quand même m'amuser, aller à des fêtes ect.. Après pour apprendre ça posera pas de problème, je veux surtout bien m'intégrer ! :)
Et puis ici je suis en S donc ça va les gens sont matures ils s'en branlent
Well i know people who are 15, but mentally sounds like they're 20. I think it's just a mentality issue. I don't personally have any trouble about hanging out with someone 3 years younger or older than me if they act mature.
Turned 24 few days ago and currently at my 3d and last year of Languages&Mediation. People won't give a flying fuck about your age unless you're over 30 and neither you should give a fuck about what people might think. And unless you're complete garbage, desperate and utterly ugly you'll be fine. Eventually you'll grow bored of the entire campus population since it will be composed mostly by manchild, stoner and intellectual-wannabe chicks.
Well i'm not sure yet. As i said i'm in a Scientific "path" right now. If i get tired of maths & physics after my diploma i'll probably go around marketing/business or something like that. Or if i'm not tired of these, probably mechanical engineering !
