Am I too old to be considering a full time MBA? 27 with 5.5 years of work experience. Recently got promoted to manager at ACN. I want to pivot into tech/fintech specifically but I’m not sure the opportunity cost is worth it. (Or if there are other, cheaper options.) I believe at this point I’d have to be looking at matriculation in fall 2023, by which point I’ll be 7 years out of undergrad.

I went to a psychologist and answered an ADHD questionnaire, basically scoring the highest possible score for ADHD. Long story short: the psych told me that since I made it through law school with a decent/good GPA l don’t have ADHD.

Has anyone been told this? I.e., that since you’re a “professional” and have had good grades you don’t have ADHD? I just feel it’s a bit unfair since I had to work myself to the bone just to stay focused and understand the material.
