Hello everyone, This is my first time posting, but I think it will help me if anyone can give me any advice. To make a long story short, I graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2006 (GPA 3.9). It took me 10 years to get my BA since I was in and out of school due to family responsibilities. I also dropped 4 classes with a W during that time. After I received my BA, I had a baby, and therefore I never worked in that field, because I stayed home for a year with the 3 kids. However, during that time off I reflected a lot on what I wanted to do as a career, and I realized that my passion was in the medical field. I went back to begin taking pre-reqs in 2007, and so far with gen chem and gen biol and calculus finished I have a 4.0 science GPA, but I haven't taken the dreaded Org Chem and Physics yet, but I feel pretty confident I'll do well (because I study soooo hard). My question is I'll be 37, possibly 38 when I apply to medical/optometry/pharmacy school (I haven't decided which one yet), and with my age and the fact that it took me so long to get my BA, do I have any chance at all? Which one will I have the best chance of getting into? I keep going back and forth wondering if I would be better off in some medical tech field that would take the same 2 years that it will take for me start my applications to the professional schools. I'm scared that I won't get in, but I'm also scared not to try because I know I won't be happy 10 years from now if I'm not working in a career where I can use my full potential. Thanks for any insight.
