Great questions. You can go to any you choose and are able.
There is no disadvantage. We cover the same information in class online. It is just an added option for students who want hands on time with the faculty and cannot attend the PODs. Less than half the TAD students will attend the workshops over time. We are also going to offer certain portions of the workshop program to the online students so they can get a boost while they wait for classes to start.
Van Gogh started at 32. You are fine and your age brings considerable advantage as you have an understanding for things like time management, and will take the program very seriously. All TAD students are serious but the maturity will help you go a long way. You can be where you need to be, and hope to be in less than three years if you work hard. Nothing wrong with having your dream career in your mid thirties. Most do not take that brave step and end up frustrated they did not do it sooner. You have plenty of time and we are happy to help you. There are a number of older TAD students so you are aware.
Drop Scott a line if you like. He is at infoATtheartdepartment.org and he can assist you directly there too.
I hope to see you in class.
