Default sorry your out of luck

Your gonna find in next to impossible to get into a grad school with no undergrad degree not to mention no gre score, sorry its just not gonna happen, why should they take you when they have far more educated and qualified individuals

Grad school is where you get serious and your not going to get taken seriously till get an undergrad

I had a few 40 year olds in my classes, sure they were a little out of place but honestly no one really cared about their age, so just bite the bullet get moving

but at 39, and this is if you go full time and everything works out, you wont be finised with a masters till you hit 44 or 45, then good luck competing in the job feild with those 26 year olds, but your work experience might be your saving grace there,

one other thing is that there are some programs that combine undergrad and grad school into one degree, these are usually 5 year programs and are only availabe for certain majors,

my university had these for education and architecture masters,

Some universities will allow you to enroll in a Masters program without a BA. It's extremely uncommon, not offered everywhere, and generally will require vast experience in the field you plan to get your Masters in.

Best of luck!

John, I'd love to know more about where you got accepted and how you did it.

I'm in a similar situation - I left university before I completed my bachelor's, and am hoping to apply to a graduate program without going through an expensive set of classes that would be redundant at the level I'm at in my career.

I left school to start a magazine, which I went on to publish for seven years, then started one of the first web design companies in San Francisco. I now have 12 years of experience as an information architect and usability specialist, and am a VP-level director at an advertising agency in New York. I would hope there would be a university that would consider my career experience as a qualification for entering a graduate program.

It very much depends on the type of degree. For example, you could not get a masters in physics or history without a bachelors degree in those subject matters, because the masters degrees are designed to move those with a basic level of the subject matter to a state of "mastery". However, there are also a number of masters degrees which will admit you with a bachelors degree in any, or at least one of a number of subject matters. These would include things like gerontology, library science (these subject matters are usually not taught at all at the undergraduate level), and the MBA.
