I will be 50 years old this year and I am a university sophomore. I say this as if I am introducing myself to a court mandated support group, as if I need rehabilitated for committing myself to student debt at this age. Why would anyone do that? Why would I do that?
It would be easy to say I want to improve my career options, but that is only partly true. Or that I am preparing for retirement or I want to be able to support myself in case something every happens to my husband. These reasons are only partly true as well. It is really not that simple.
