IamA 40yr old who quit IT & signed up at college to pursue science - Evolutionary Anthropology/Archaeology - and worked 2 months in a North American site that may be U.S. oldest AMA!
My short bio: I worked in IT for many years and obtained many standard IT certifications. One day, I quit and headed over to the local college to pursue a long time interest. I am currently in my final semester and gearing up for grad school. The purpose of my AMA is for anyone, especially older students, who wonder about the college process, archaeology, academics, and anything relative. I believe that there are many brilliant people who don't pursue dreams because they think their age is a barrier and/or have no idea of where to start. I'll be happy to answer any questions on my experiences (good/bad), archaeology, evolution, and tips I learned to actually make it in the field/grad school
