    OSUdoc08,

    Unfortunately you came to the wrong place to meet young, single women. :mad: Hopefully your class will be better than ours. Good luck.

    Wow...I feel much better about my age too!! I'm neither youngest nor oldest, but most importantly---I'm not the only one! YEAH!

    Finished B.S.--21
    Finished M.A.--24
    Will finish D.O.--35ish
    End of residency--41ish??

    Assuming nothing randomly unexpected happens like getting pregnant, winning the lottery, or similar....

    Willow~
