runningincircles Posted September 23, 2013 Share Posted September 23, 2013 Hi all, just a quick question regarding status of older students - I am/ will be one when/if I get into an MS program. I'm female, and will be closer to 40 than 30 when I apply. My main concern is what my employment chances will be like after graduation. I know that this field tends to be populated by those in their 20's and I'm concerned that I may face discrimination, either by being rejected from potential MS programs, or more importantly, rejected by employers because of my age. Does anyone here have any experience/evidence to the contrary? I am a good candidate with a current 4.0 GPA in all U.S. courses I've taken (both grad and undergrad). I'm a perm resident, and got undergrad and grad degrees in the U.K - but those were in social sciences. I have no experience in the field, and have basically been a stay at home mom for the past few years while studying part-time. I'm taking calculus right now, will be taking linear alg, real analysis, programming in c++ differential equations, probability theory, regression analysis etc. Am I disillusioned that I might be able to make a career out of stats?? Any info much appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
