I am in my last semester graduating in Constructin Management with minors in chemistry and business management. I have finished all of my pre-med classes and am going to apply to med-school this next year. It seemed like every science class I took the teachers and other students were always asking me why I was CM and going to med school. It seemed to just shock them more-so than the students who were business, accounting, or english majors.

I am just curious if there are any CM majors out there who are planning to go to med school or if anybody knows any in med school already. I don't know how I will be viewed in the applications process and it makes me a little nervous.
My grades, service, activities,etc... are good and I'm hoping my mcat will be too. I just realize that I'm kinda an extreme non-tradional applicant.

Hey Ame,

I had a ten year career in construction management before turning my attention to the health service industry. Does that count?....
Since leaving construction, I completed 60 hours undergraduate pre-requisites, and a PhD in Medical Genetics. I've been accepted to medical school and will defer matriculation until 2008..

There are far more extreme nontraditionals out there than you. It wont matter to the adcoms what you studied as long as you are able to convince them that you are committed and capable in medical school.:thumbup:

I'm a Mechanical Engineer with an MBA and been looking for work for 5 years. I know it's my locations but I like rural areas. My wife is a MD and I've been following her in her career since the beginning. I have fell in love with medicine and now am trying to get into a DO school in WV.
