If you search these forums, it seems a lot of people would say it's not too late age wise. I feel that the lack of jobs due to the financial crisis, coupled with the fact that they will be lower paying, both because they will involve things like regulations, rather than profit creation, and because of the increased competition both from the people who got laid off and from the increase in MFE/MSc programs does not make the tuition and income lost worthwhile. Someday it may be worthwhile (pre-August 2007 scenario) again, but that day seems to be far off (5 years, more, anyones guess?) Frankly, I'm really surprised to see how many people are still interested in these programs, do they have no other opportunities? If this doesn't cause people to lose interest what will. On the other hand if you're already in finance, and have no other experience, maybe there are no better alternatives than to prepare yourself as well as possible and hope for the best.
