Hi, I am 20 years old and i am applying to med schools for the 2003 year. At first, if you look at my age you might think that i have ZERO EC's; however, i have 3 years of research, 1 year as a volunteer tutor, and 1 year as a patient aide. The reason why i am "young" is that i used to live in London and when i moved to the US, the american system pushed me TWO years ahead! So, i was in grade 8 at the age of 12! Yeh, thats right! I was 12 (the year i was turning 13) when i started 8th grade. In conclusion, do you think that med schools might give me the boot? thx!
