schoolpsycher Posted July 19, 2014 Share Posted July 19, 2014 I'm 24 and going to start my grad program in about a month (eek!), but I recently found out the majority of my 12-person cohort is older than me. It looks like there's a couple people around my age, but everyone else is in their 30s/40s. The director of the program also told us that 7 out of 12 of us already have a masters degree, which along with the age difference, is already intimidating me! I was one of the youngest at my job the past 2 years and got along great with my co-workers, but I feel like it will be different in a classroom setting. I know I can learn a lot from people that are already so experienced in the field, but I'm really starting to worry that I'll feel left out and won't feel like I can contribute as much. I'm also worried social-wise, but I do already live in the city of my program so I'll have friends outside of it as well. Anyone been in a similar situation? Getting nervous about whether I made the right decision. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
