How Old Is Too Old?

I'm starting college next week... I am officially thirty years old, this is not my first attempt at higher learning about seven years ago I signed up and attended a technical school, which was basically the same thing I am going to learn this time around, but this time we are adding the courses I don't need for this particular field... Yet you have to take them in order to get the degree. I probably already know everything I will be being taught (in my second year) yet I don't get the credit for it in the real world. The problem with having a technical school education for working in the IT industry in my opinion is this... The people hiring you have know idea what the hell it is they are hiring you for... So the only thing they can go by is the equivalent to their degree eg. Associates - Bachelors - Masters... I usually get "what is A plus certified? or what is a MCP?" Grr... Well Bozo these are tough certifications to get in the field you are thinking (or maybe not) of hiring me for. See I have been doing Computer work on and off for approximately six years and have met all types in the field... It is unfortunate that the conversations most worth being held are the ones that are with the people that go to technical school. The college people usually think they know everything and talk down at you, and really have no idea what it is they are talking about... Yet they have the money and the jobs... I hopefully will be joining the ranks of these people... But promise if I ever get back to a position of authority that I will be hiring the people from technical schools.
Not all college people are idiots... Don't get me wrong I have met some good ones... Just seems the Technical School people know their stuff more...
