Poster: feeling old now
Subject: Masters in statistics. Degree of difficulty - starting over at age 30.
I don't like my job at all, so I'm going to go back to school and completely change fields. I'm analytical by nature, I like looking at numbers and drawing conclusions or making projections based on what I find.
So I've decided on a masters in statistics because it seems like there are so possibilities for jobs - government, politics, public health, research, insurance companies. I'm a former biology major, so maybe biostatistics would be the appropriate path.
Any words of wisdom or support? I'm completely starting over, I'm going to re-take single variable and multiple variable calculus, which I haven't look at in 10 years. One of the masters programs in my area also recommended linear algebra. I'm kind of intimidated but I think I can do it.
Any of you done something like this at my age in a rigorous scientific field?
