I started late in life myself and will probably be around 40 by the time I'm done with exams (keeping my fingers crossed).

Maybe not the norm, but definitely would not be an issue based on my experience.

I started at Milliman when I was 30.

People seem to like me, but you'd really have to ask them what they think.

Yeah. Perhaps we like you because you're weird. j/k

I could see how that would bother someone else, but it doesn't bother me since I'm completely content with the decisions I made along the way to becoming a 33 y.o. EL actuary, and I don't hold it against anyone else that they did the actuary thing sooner than me.
So you shouldn't feel threatened by someone with a cooler business card than you? I bet some people would really hope they get the axe

just look at that subtle off-white coloring
