    An organization that I currently administer has recently launched its own web site. The National Society for Non-Traditional Pre-Medical & Medical Students (also known as OldPreMeds) new web site is located at <a href="http://www.northern-town.com/opm" target="_blank">www.northern-town.com/opm</a> This is a temporary home. In the not to distant future, we will coreside on the SDN server at <a href="http://www.oldpremeds.net" target="_blank">www.oldpremeds.net</a> / .com / .org

    Please drop by and check the place out...bear in mind that is still a work in progress and will only improve over time.

    Out of curiousity, what does 'non-trad' mean? Is it a wide ranging definition that is basically what a 'mature student' is in NZ (ie. older than all us youngun's), or does it also cover pre-meds doing an Arts degree or Theatrical performance or something? :)

    Honestly, I do not know if it is truly "defined". owever, in my opinion, it is anyone who has taken or is attempting to take a path into med school that is not the standard do well in HS &gt; do well in college &gt; med school w/o any spouses, children or significant life/professional experience outside of a classroom.

    But, we do not exclude anyone based upond this definition. We have several members who are quite traditional in their path, but less traditional in that they respect what we old geezers are trying to do and wish to learn from us.

    :D
