^ I dunno, you're a total badass among 30 year olds :lol

But if I was a badass and 19 I could be part of the shag fest that makes up my student halls

Get yourself some spandex, one of those crazy '80s paintjobs on your guitar, and repackage yourself as some kind of weird old Satchel type.  Invite them to your room to show them your divebombs, girls love that

lmao, sounds like I'm in for 'sugar daddy' status when I go back to uni, ha ha  :lol:

Excellent - I went back at 35 - already had 2 degrees (saddo !).  It was the best thing I've ever done - 5 years of great fun and getting to think again - loved it ! (I funded by selling the house - ouch !).

Immunology ! That's good fun ! Go for it - it's so good to have the time to think and learn...

Where are you (?thinking of) going ? (Important for things like biomedical sciences if you are looking for jobs afterwards or thinking about medicine long-term).

Cheers,
Andy

Hi Andy, thanks for the feedback.  I'd have to stay local to be able to do this on a financial level, but I'm lucky to have Newcastle Uni right on my doorstep and they're happy to take me on (spoken to the course leader already).

Excellent! Being a mature student I had a really great time - it was a good laugh and probably the most fun few years in ages....

I felt ancient being 26 at uni god knows how you'll feel at 40 you old fart  :lol:

I went back in the cheaper old days, not sure I could stomach the current cost. Make sure you are 100% choosing an education that will get you cash at the end of it!

I wasn't aware of any secret shagging societies but then I had a wife back home  :lol:

If two of those people are male though, they only get half a point each because they have to share. If its two females the guy gets two points. If its three females then...  8)

I won't mention the other possibility...

Ibanez Jem BSB                       Jeff Loomis Sig 7 String
Warmoth Strat                         ZW Bullseye Epi

Since it's "rock society" I very much doubt more than one was a woman...

Have you seen rockers these days? it's hard to tell. Either way you know what they say. Every hole is a goal.

I've spent a decent amount of time looking at salaries for graduates going into this line of work and am happy enough with what I've found.  Also spoken to someone I know off this site who used to work in this field.
