Am I naive to be working on a STEM degree at 20?

  1. Jul 25, 2014 #1
    I will be turning 21 soon and still have two semesters of prerequisites left until I can enter into a post-secondary program... Is this naive in anyway?

    Why do you think it's naive? Can you give some more information? Major? Any goals?

    He or she is probably worried about being too young.

    I wouldn't worry about that. Lot's of people successfully do these degrees staring at around your age. A lot really has to do more with maturity of the individual than age.
