    Old ECs, getting LOR from old college career/out of workforce, and physician shadowing for non-trads

    I have a few questions. My undergrad extended from 2001-2004. Would my ECs from way back when still "count"? They included: Volunteering in an ED National Residence Hall Honorary (Historian 1 year, President 1 year) Resident Assistant, 2 years (not sure if this is an EC or work experience)...

    I'm an old lady with a family. Is there any hope?

    Alright, maybe not that old, but I ain't no spring chicken anymore. I worked in day care taking care of this year's round of med school applicants. I'm 35, married to a man who is in the prime of a successful professional (non-medical) career, and a stay at home mom to three kids, all school...

    Too old for medical school?

    I'm a nontraditional student about to start medical school this year. Sometimes I get down because I didn't start medical school right away; other times, I'm content because I think I've matured over the years. I worked at a hospital for over three years in clinical research, and I got...

    How are schools handling old vs new MCAT?

    I got a 30 on the old mcat in July 2014. I recently took the July 2016 exam and got a 517. My question is how much weight if any are schools placing on the new mcat over the old? Will I be viewed as a 517 or as a ~513 (avg of 517 and 30)? I'm currently applying and want to know if it's worth my...

    Difference between old vs new TBR (Bio and OChem)

    Hi All! I have been searching around but have not been able to figure out whether there is a significant difference between the old and new TBR bio and ochem books. I have the old ones and I am wondering buying the new books would be worth it. From the website it seems like the bio chapters...

    Older student In ms1

    Hello all, Sorry if this is a lame post, but I just need some reassurance or harsh truth. I got into a good med school, and so far my performance has been fine--so none of that is an issue. It's just I've over heard other students making a big deal about being 28 when they graduate, and it...
