StraighterLine - Degree after 50!
#1
Here's a success story, you don't really need to go the StraighterLine route, you can start with Sophia.org for example instead.  Just give yourself a bit of time to decide on the degree/school you want and finish there.  The example here is a lady who attended TESU and was able to take courses towards their degree and StraighterLine knocked out a handful of them...

Congrats for getting thus far! <I'll cheer for you on the side lines>, it's never too old to start or continue with your education. Many of the board members started or completed their degree at the same age (lover 50).
