    I will be graduating undergrad at 23, with a 3 year old child. I will probably take one year off between undergrad and applying to med school (if I apply) so that I can get the rest of my premed courses and MCAT done.

    Does this make me nontrad?

    Thanks!

    Yup, the kid makes you non-trad IMO regardless of your age.

    You're a cat. That's pretty nontraditional in my book. ;)

    (Can you tell I'm excited for book 7???)

    LOL It took me a moment to understand what you mean by "you're a cat".

    I'm so far behind in the books, I'm just looking forward to the next movie now.

    pretty much. Since you have a child and the need take some classes after graduating from undergrad. Welcome to our world.
