Hey to those perusing the mathematics forums. I was just wondering if there are any others out there who are pursuing/pursued the study of mathematics "later" on in their life ? I realized 1/2 of the way through my first degree (political science/criminology) that it wasn't the path I wanted to head down for the rest of my life. An astronomy elective I took second year really opened up my eyes, ever since then I knew what I was meant to do. [Astronomy theory -> Physics theory -> Mathematical theory -> Physics/Math] I finished the degree, and now I'm going to be heading back to university again next year to study Mathematics & Physics. I'm really looking forward to it. So what's your story if you've got one ?
