I am 31 year old and graduated with an Bachelors Degree nearly 10 years ago. I'd like to go back to school for an entirely different field of expertise and earn a doctorate.

Are questions regarding such topics application for admissions allowed here on this site? FYI, I did read the FAQ. It seems a bit vague on this topic.


Admissions to undergraduate programs are generally off-topic; admissions to graduate programs are on-topic, so long as they follow the group guidelines (in other words, be general enough that the answer might help someone else).

A question on "returning to school to pursue a doctorate in another field" would probably be on-topic. You could post a sample of your question here to check if it's OK.

  • Sir, I know this question is outside the site's focus: academia.stackexchange.com/questions/41471/… But I really need advice. Where can I ask this question? Because it obviously can't be reworded to fit the rules, I have to give up hopes of getting it open here... I need to ask this elsewhere, but where? And I think I've asked a genuine enough question... So it's not that the question itself was improper... Any suggestions sir?
