I am curious...how many of you are or were "non-traditional" applicants and residents, not coming straight out of med school and internship? I went through the match last year and am coming around on my CA-1 year in July as a 31-year old who did a family practice internship in 2000 and has served in the military as a GP ever since.

Anybody else out there who started somewhere else and eventually also saw the light?
