If I will be 31 when I finish medical school, will the different residency programs for neurosurgery look down upon me because I am older?

I am 32 applying this year and my home program as well as the other places I have done sub-Is have only been supportive. I should say I look really young (like 24-25 even sometimes confused for 18) so I am not sure people realize how old I am until they see when I graduated from undergrad.

Well that is good to know. You should let me know how it goes as you finish applying and get accepted. Also, where are you applying? Thanks

I wouldn't worry about it. I was older than you and got many interviews and matched just fine.
