I'm dreaming of getting out of the corporate world after working there for several years. I'm 28 now and I want to re enter college and get an art related degree. I have started putting together a portfolio to apply to some NYC schools but I have some concerns.
I know it shouldn't matter but I don't want to feel out of place being the oldest student. It'll feel really weird being a decade older than the freshmen. Can some people chime in on if there are a good amount of older students? Any of you out there go do what I'm planning, a mid career change and reentering school late?
Anyone have any thoughts on the possibility that it'll be harder for me to get a job afterwards? Is there age discrimination for entry level jobs, in art related fields?
