Just discovered this site...I am a much older career change applicant, and I thought that I'd at least be getting an interview or two by now...but I've only heard rejections (5) so far, and no word from the other 15 MD nor 5 DO programs. I am currently a research scientist in a non-medical field, got 97 percentile on the MCAT last spring, did well in grad school, a little poorly in undergrad (but it was over 10 years ago for the premed equivalent classes, and it was a top school), and I've been doing 20-30 hours of medical volunteer work for the past 3.5 years. I guess that I didn't expect this level of stress and rejection in the process. My applications have been in since the summer, so there's nothing I can really do at this point, right? Is it just my age? Do those ancient bad grades really matter that much in light of the years since? Any advice? Thanks for reading. I hope your process is going well.
