I am most likely going to be applying to Medical School next year, when I'm 19. I have a late birthday (September), so I figured I would be much younger than the rest of the...

    Hey guys. I graduated with my bachelor of science degree, and my GPA was at around 2.8. I know I wasn't really focusing on my school at that time.. and I regret it. I thought my gpa was too weak to apply for any dental school (didn't even think about taking DAT either because of my gpa) so I...

    Age too old?

    My dad is 49 years old. He wants to continue his career he had in medicine before we came to the US, but no one will accept him because the time he has been out of practice is too long, and the years since medical school is also too long. Maybe he should go back to school? I know he would have...
