Oxford, Cambridge say, "be f*cking amazing in academics. Get all A*s, 100s, 2400s (or anywhere close) in all your exams. ECs? F*ck ECs. We want Academics and academics only. Community Service? IRDGAF, if you climbed Mt. Everest to save the homeless. Did we mention Academics? Have good academics!"
Stanford, Ivy Leagues, MIT say, "Gimme some research work. F*ck academics. Have a good olympiad? Come in for our 4 year course, then. Have the scores, have sports, be frikkin' amazing at some goddamn thing; else, GTFO"
You are not late. Choose one. Focus on it. Get in.

I am 29 years old. Is it too late to prepare for Gmat and get admission in MBA?
No it is most definitely not too late for you to prepare for your GMAT exam. In fact you are at the most appropriate age to apply and study for your MBA degree. The Admissions committee at most universities prefer to admit candidates who are experienced for their MBA programs. This is because they believe that such candidates are more suitable as they will possess valuable skills like business acumen, maturity, intelligence etc. You will also have practical knowledge of the functioning of a firm - the hierarchy, the inter department dependency, a unique skill set which you may have acquired at your job etc. Universities look to admit versatile candidates and not only individuals with academic intelligence. You should first determine when you will attempt your GMAT, then accordingly map out a detailed study plan covering all the important topics of the syllabus. Regular study, attempting mock tests will help you to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and accordingly determine which methods to adopt to study. You must also pay attention to the other aspects of your profile - SOP, LOR, any internships you may have completed, online certifications which you have acquired, etc. These factors also play an important role in the admission process, hence it is advised you spend adequate time on the same.
Is it too late to go to university?
In short, no, it's not too late. It really is rarely "too late"--there are older veterans who've become doctors after leaving the military. Also, I strongly doubt that you lack transferrable skills. You probably have a lot more than you think you do.
I am 21. Is it too late to apply for an undergraduate at a top university?
It is never too late to start or continue your education !!!
Follow your heart and do your best. That is all that anyone can ever ask from you and all you can ever (or should ever) expect from yourself.
Now as for a "top 20 university"...exactly what is that? Rankings of colleges are done to sell magazines and books. A "top 8" university is what you need. And what exactly is a "top 8" university? It is a school at which they have your intended course of study, that fits what you want in a school, that is the size you want, at a price you can afford, in an area you would be happy living, where your grades/scores meet their criteria. And finally take a look at the rate of employment of their graduates...since at the end of this journey you do want to find a job right?
You need about 8 of these schools that fit YOU to apply to so that you will have at least one to attend after the admissions process is completed.
So understand, that the top school for you is not the top school for anyone else since everyone is different. Find the path that YOU want to follow and the rest will take care of itself.
Good luck !
I'm almost 22 and my GPA is less than 3.0. Is it too late for me to get into a top university?
Jessica may be right, but why worry about a so-called "top" university at the undergraduate level? The "top" schools (colleges and universities) at this point in time are very hard to get into. Some take under 10 percent of applicants and I'm sure most applicants are highly qualified, and many have perfect grades and SATs. How are you going to compete with that?
I am from your parents' generation (I have a 23 year old son) but in my time I graduated from a good, small, rather avant garde and funky, state college that was way above average but though people there fancied it to be an elite college it really had a mix of lazy, bright and various messed up kids. It was a good and interesting school, but except in a few subjects like music and acting it would not then or now be considered a top college. It was a recently founded school and didn't necessarily have a big reputation. But it did have some great professors and as a student one could work closely with them if one reached out to them, and I did so. Because of this close work with professors whose own reputations carried weight I was able to get into Berkeley for graduate school where I got my PhD, which was my dream in life--not Berkeley necessarily but a PhD from a top program in my field. It didn't matter that the college I went to wasn't "top," because I could do "top" work at any good college by finding good professors and classes, and so can you. What's to stop you from working closely with great professors at a college or university that is not a "top university" and still get a first class education?
Is it too late to go to university?
No, but unlike younger students you probably should try to take many courses online. Though I was one for a while, I think older students who try to participate too much in campus social life come across as losers.
Also, be aware that because many young students haven't worked you might have more in common with the professors or the campus staff than the undergrads.
Am I too late if I apply for Canada Fall Intake 2020 in December?
It is possible for you to apply in December but will be a hectic process.
Most programs have their deadline in December and they also have multiple rounds with last round deadline up until Early March, so do not worry.
Take GRE and IELTS/TOEFL as soon as possible (if asked by the program you are applying to).
You will also need your official transcripts (in-progress is fine at this stage) so apply with your university as soon as you can. Many programs will only need you to scan those and upload. But be mindful of whether the programs you are applying to require you to mail them the official transcripts or ‘scan and upload’. Remember, it will take anywhere between 15–20 days for your official transcript to be ready after you apply with your university, add few more days for delivery via mail.
Also, prepare your resume and personal statement as per the requirements of the programs you will be applying to.
Additionally, you will have to ask your professors or superiors (if going for professional LOR) for recommendations.
It will be better for you to acquire the service of professional education consultants, as it will be a very hectic process for you in this short timeline, and the consultants will certainly help you along the way. They will also be helpful if you have any queries. More importantly, they will make sure that you do not make any rectifiable mistake.
I will recommend you to go for February deadline along with the use of consultant services.
I am in my late thirties, is it too late for law school?
I obtained a law degree when I was in my early 40s. I was working full-time, and had a wife and two young children. It was tough on me, and maybe tougher on my wife.
I do not practice law, other than do some basic things for family and friends. However, I do not regret having the legal education and knowledge of law. It is practical in many ways.
One of the reasons I decided not to practice law full time is that I actually earn more in the software industry than I would as an attorney. It's true.
One myth about the legal profession is that all lawyers are wealthy and make multiple six-figure salaries straight out of law school. Not true. Not all of us can graduate top of the class at Yale, Harvard or Stanford.
Also, many glamorize the legal profession. Forget about winning a landmark case, settling a multi-million dollar law suit, or saving an innocent defendant from the death penalty. Those are very rare and mostly happen in movies. Most legal work is mundane, repetitious, and trivial.
I am probably not the best one to answer your question, but I would say that it is equally split among my lawyer friends who love their profession and find it very rewarding (emotionally, if not financially), and others who despise their choice of professions.
For working adults, I would suggest that a law degree works best if you can use it to advance up a corporate ladder.
In terms of a worthy job in the field of law, there are opportunities to give time or work at a legal aid society or legal clinic. But, just be prepared for the unexpected. These altruistic efforts are not what you would expect. You'll get your fair share of liars, people wanting to avoid obligations or hoping for an easy or quick solution to a problem that was years in the making.
So, in conclusion, study law for the practical knowledge. There will be opportunities to do good, especially if you can apply the law in combination with your prior experience and knowledge. For example, with my knowledge of music, I can help aspiring songwriters copyright their recordings and original songs. As a software engineer, I have helped several inventors obtain patents.
