Hello all, I did the responsible thing that the cute, little, intro video suggested about netiquette and searched (and read, and repeated the process) prior to asking this question. I found some threads that discuss my specific issue, but they didn't provide a lot of detail and they were older, between 6 and 8 years old. So, please forgive me for not finding another thread with the same information that I request here. I tried. If you know the location of the perfect link for this information, I will gladly click it. What schools look unfavorably at us older applicants? I've heard that Tufts, George Washington, BU and Loma Linda all make this list. I ask because, while competitive in other ways, I suspect that I have reached the age where some schools might be trying *not* to take me. I just turned 39. My recent MCAT (July 24th, 2014) was 35. My undergraduate GPA was around 3.2 with a 2.8 science GPA at Cal as a double major in molecular and cell bio and ISF (you make your own major). I moved to Nevada and have not gotten an A- since retaking prereqs and adding some other courses. At the same time, I've worked at least 30 hours per week (for 3 semesters and 2 summers thus far). I've got medical volunteering, shadowing, research (though it's been a while) and I'm set up to do some non-medical volunteering. My most recent work has been in home health care for 1 1/2 years, pharmacy tech (last 3 years) and medical scribing (just recently, but I'm not sure if I will continue). I'm fairly convinced that I will get into an MD medical school in the United States, but not Puerto Rico (in part because I haven't met their mandatory Spanish requirement). I'm looking to cast a fairly wide net in my applications (so I have choices). I only want to do the process once. I want to avoid schools likely to rule me out due to my age and am hoping this community can help. I plan to pay it back by posting here about my experiences as a non-trad applicant! I am a late applicant to the 2015 cycle. I will be sending out my first group of applications within a few days and the last group within 1-2 weeks.
