Greetings

Here's my plan, as of now: To go to community college to get the GPA that I need to get into the University of Pennsylvania.  They have a school called the College of Liberal Professional Studies (LPS) that is specifically geared towards adults.  The faster I get in there, the better, as I dread the thought of only going to school with people half my age.  Supposedly, if I take four classes at community college, get good grades, and write a killer application essay, then I should have a good shot at getting into the University of Pennsylvania LPS school.  It's been about 13 years since I took the GED test, so hopefully they won't hold my old test scores against me.  Do I sound like an unlikely candidate for an Ivy League school?  Well, we'll see about that.  Even though a lot of people think you're stupid if you haven't gone to college, I think I may still have a few tricks up my sleeve.

I just want to say that based on this post alone, you seem a LOT smarter than some people who have graduated from college. This post shows good spelling, correct punctuation, and it's well-written.

Good luck!

I went back to school as an adult nine yrs ago and I got way more out of it than I did when I was fresh out of high school. I think you'll find the course material has a lot more relevance for you and you can share some life experiences with your classmates.

Blog and tell us how things are going once classes start.

Thanks for your comment, Mike. I certainly will blog about it. That's my plan anyway.
