Default Yeast Starter Viability

This is my first time ever making a starter so go easy on me here.

I put together a yeast starter on Wednesday night using Wyeast's Bavarian Yeast around 8:30 PM. I used a 1/2 cup of Plain Amber DME in my starter along with the amount of water prescribed in "How to Brew." I have been searching the boards here and some say that a yeast starters viability is between 24-48 hours. I plan on brewing sometime around 10-11:00 AM tomorrow morning, which makes the yeast starter around 60 hours old. Is my yeast starter past its prime, or am I just fine?

Friends don't let friends go to grad school...

No . It will be fine. You could even step it up one more time in 60 hours.
