Hello! I’m a 25 year old living in California, I’ve always been interested in medicine since I was in high school. I volunteered at my community hospital for a couple of months right after high school. but I never thought it would be possible for me to achieve. First, I’m not a US citizen, i came to this country when I was just 2 years old and it’s all I know! That’s why I’m on the daca program (don’t know if you’re familiar with it) but it pretty much gave all the immigrant children who have been here since little a legal status that we renew every 2 years, giving us a valid social security and work authorization. That saved my life. During my first years of college I struggled to excel. It wasn’t until 2018 when I suffered a tremendous loss. I went into preterm labor at 5 months and ended up losing my baby boy, due to an infection in my placenta known as chorioamnionitis. It destroyed me.i don’t know what I would’ve done without my family support and God. It took a year to get myself back up and that led me back to medicine even more. I became so interested into being able to help and bringing them happiness with healthy pregnancies. I started researching OBGYN a lot. I wouldn’t want any women to go through what I went thru in my pre term labor. I haven’t finished undergrad. I currently work at a assisted living and memory care facility as a medication assistant and I enrolled in a EMT class in January, preparing to build up my medical school application. BUT, I failed my emt class and that really killed my motivation. Knowing I have yet to get my bachelor’s degree, not done my science prerequisites, yet to take the MCAT or anything. I know I’m so far from even applying to medical school and being already 25 it sorta scares me of the long road ahead. I really want to retake my emt class and enroll back to college to start my bachelor’s. I know it’ll be like starting all over again. Do you think I have any chance even if I have to build my low gpa back up from scratch ? Thank you so much for the advice.
