    To get into, say, Concordia, a Quebec student has to have their CEGEP (which is what I believe Genesis was referring to when he mentioned 2 years to get his "college" diploma).


    Don't let the period of time put you off. I know that here in Ontario alot of Masters programmes will pay the student a certain stipend in exchange for teaching assistant duties. Not the greatest but at least you can totally focus on your studies then and do related work. I don't see why there wouldn't be the same thing in Quebec. For the BA: like Damselfly said.

    I wasted 7 years of my life after getting my BSc at options that I thought were quick (like getting my teaching certificate). I find myself older (much older than you) and still not doing something I really love. So: Go for it.

    You should definitely go for it. I graduated from university last month, and am 29 years old. I have already gained a graduate position in my specialist field, and can't begin to tell you how good it feels to have a career. You don't have to worry about children yet, so that should make it easier for you and your girlfriend to juggle the finances for a while. Maybe you could work nights/weekend work while studying? I don't know about study arrangements in the U.S, but here in Aus I was able to defer my fees through the tax system. Am now up to the part where I have to pay them off but it is worth it!!! You are only 20 years old - Go for it. (33 is still young too!).
