I have lurked on this site for some time and I have appreciated the intelligent, well-written answers to myriad questions.
My inquiry is the following: I have faced age discrimination in the program I am attending. This has ranged from consistent age-related comments to rejection of research grants and programs based on age (statement that I am "over-qualified" and "too experienced"). I am in my 30s. Most of the students are in their 20s.
Should I quit the program? I am especially interested in the experiences and opinions of older students who have faced similar issues.
Please note that in order to improve the quality of my question I will update it with any and all needed points of clarification.
