Aiming for Princeton admission at 28?? I am 28 years old and I have a B.A in Industrial Design. I have worked in my field for 6 years now, but lately I've been thinking about getting my mechanical engineering degree. I am aiming high by considering admission into Princeton, but I am not sure how to go about it, considering that I am not a HS senior with a perfect SAT score looking for admission to college. I know that Princeton is extremely selective, so I don't how someone like myself would approach this. Any advice?
