My guess is, if she wants to be the FPO face of a disc company and compete and win, she'll still be a full time touring pro.

She has the chance to make much more than most college graduates out of school for their first ten years.

With online courses she can tour and attend college if she wants. I am guessing she will get a nice contract and then College can wait but I do hope these pros take some money management courses.

The knowledge acquisition component of college can happen at any time and through any medium as folks have noted. But there’s a personal formation and maturation aspect that only happens in person and with your peers. If that’s what she’s after, then now’s really the only time. Being on campus at 29 with a bunch of 19 year olds doesn’t carry the same potential for personal growth. The experience simply isn’t the same even if the credentialed outcome is.

Let’s see how it plays out.

We must have gone to different colleges.

Could be. I went to Davidson and chose it largely on the strength of the learning community.

To approach it from the assumption that you’re not going to get anything substantive out of those years of personal interaction, then I’d tell her not to go, at least in person. It would be almost foolishly counterproductive not to take full advantage of her skill for the sake of a mere credential she can certainly acquire at any time and without interrupting or compromising her earning potential.

This is all assuming that college is specifically in play as a competing priority.
