I have several questions that I would like everyones opinion on. Is there an age limit that the schools use for applicants? Provided that the canidate is up to the task, would the 50-60 year old group still be considered, or even the 40 group? I realize that the schools have to state that they don't discriminate, but do they flat out reject applicants due to age? I realize that med school is a grueling process, but provided one is motivated and healthy, do they still discriminate? Next question re:independent study courses. If the course was taken in the classroom with lab, 10 years ago, would an independent study class taken for review be acceptable? To boost a less than stellar indergrad GPA, which is the best choice. (GPA-2.98) More post-bac undergrad science classes, or graduate level science classes and possible a Masters? Do graduate classes count more than undergrad classes to prove to ADCOM's that you are able to do advanced work? Several physicians have told me to take Biochem at the grad level. Any input is appreciated.
