I so needed to hear that.Some one from one of the Pennsylvania schools just told me that at 27 im a little up there in age and ive been out of school too long(6 years)!. I mean its not like i was sitting at home and eating bon bons and getting fat.Ive been working in a hospital all this time as a Respiratory therapist.So you story certainly lifted up my spirits. Thanks.
Snake and those of you that post encouragement on this site are one of the reasons I have chosen to continue MD degree. I am 47 and have masters in nursing...taking organic chem in Sept. and then MCAT's in spring...THANKS for being here!!!
I was very impressed by your success story. I am 44 and plan to take the MACT in spring of 2010. You will be a good role model for my future career change to medicine. Please keep in touch and wish you the best on your new journey.
I had my first child when I was 19 and have been happy as a mom all these years. I thought I had to give up my dream to become a physician. My secondborn is a fourth year and has been telling me stories of one of her classmates who is in her 50's! With Jennifer's encouragement, I started to school as a Biology major. I'm going into my Junior year and am doing very well in school. I may be able to do a reverse verision of that legacy thing (I believe it would be the first time in the school's history.)
50 *is* the new 30 and I'm glad to be alive in this time and place.
Thanks for posting your story! I am 38 and finishing my degree in psychology and looking toward the med school route. You put some wind in the sail that so far, except for my husband, I've been powering all by myself!
