- How old is too old for a PhD? 9 answers
There are many questions available on this forum on whether age plays a role in phd admission. My question is a little more specific to someone who is studying for a Masters degree from a top 3 university in Canada and is from theoretical high-energy/cosmology.
I am a 27 year old Physics Masters student and I have completed one year of my Masters degree in theoretical high-energy/cosmology from one of the top universities in Canada.
I would like to apply for PhD admission to the top 20 universities in the US.
Is my age a factor that will weigh down my application?
