    Original Question
    Dear Sir or Madam,
    I am writing in hoped that you will be able to offer me some tailored
    advice.
    I graduated, Magna cum Laude, with a BS in Marketing from ________
    College in 1997.
    Since that time I have been working in the business field, but I've decided
    that it doesn't hold my interest.
    I haven't taken courses that would be considered prereqs, and I'm not very
    close with any of my old professors.
    Do I have a chance? Will it be extremely difficult for me to get into
    Medical School?
    Are there some schools that cater or have a history of accepting people
    from different backgrounds?
    Are there ways to get financial aid if you are not the ideal candidate?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Sincerely,
    __________

    Answer from Dr. Henderson: Sure: you can get in. You need to take the
    basic prerequisites found on the following page:
    medicalstudent.net.... classes

    You also need letters of recommendation... since you did so well in college,
    I suggest getting at least a couple from your old professors on file as soon as
    possible. Also try to get a couple from professors when you take your
    prerequisite classes. Finally, you also see the following page:
