Had a late start to college. Got married and had babies first. Will be 27 when I finish my masters and feeling so old 🥹 hoping to finish the CPA exams before 30. Did anyone take the cpa while doing their masters? Or did you wait until after you graduated?

Curious, why do you think that’s too old? I feel like that’s a normal age. I graduated law school at 24 and feel that was waaay to young.

You make sense! I think you’re fine and right and track. Even if you were 40 that wouldn’t be too old! I hope your program goes well and you succeed in the cpa.

I feel like that's...reasonable? I mean I'm on the same path and I didn't even get married/have babies so I think you're fine!
