Hello My main question is, is it am I gonna hit the wall, should i drop this idea, is it doable and is it worth it. Getting a job when I am around 50. LONG back story / info below, thanks for reading in advance and its ok to tell me i need to do my research as that is my plan. CURRENT FAMILY SITUATION : Spouse finished residency in 2016 and is now in a stable job in FL. Until his end of residency, I was main earner of house being IT Professional making 100k plus what ever residents get. We will have 3 kids under age 3 by Oct 2018, no family or support. Invested in a house and saving money for downpayment by no-childcare until i find a job after Dec 2018. I couldnt find job due to preg and moves. Current Loan situation: We have 2 car loans, NO student loan, mortgage to begin 2018 Work exp (non science, non healthcare): worked as IT professional 13 years (10 years in USA) I am now a USC. Never worked in hospital or clinic setting PAST EDUCATION: I did Bachelors in Commerce + computers and then Masters in I.T in India all done by 2003. Never had any education in USA. No science background. Is this worth anything? So now that I have a almost 2 years job gap and in IT its as good as starting over. I am considering career change and investing into career and considering possibilities without totally abandoning my kids. I am not much aware of the whole med school process ( never got much positive or motivating go for it response from spouse in past 3 years). Is this a good plan? ( please mind I am in initial stages of seriously researching) 1) do a 4 m MA course and work as MA part time to start having clinic experience and also some extra money. (maybe work evenings and weekends to reduce child care costs) 2) Take Bio, Chem and Physics course in local college? Do I need to do a Bachelors (3/4) year or can I just do needed coursework under 2 years. (no clue about USA education, will contact local universities to see what theysay) 3)Take MCAT and then decide if MD field is for me. 4) If good score then apply for med school in FL and nearby states. (I hear first 2 years are more manageable than last 2 due to rotations) 5) Residency is its own game ( I saw my spouse go through interviews and selection process) By this time my kids will be in school so chances are i will have to be away for atleast 3 plus years in case its out of state. 6) I don't know if my case is the worst one given I am 38 years old. If my memory and brain can handle med school like the traditional or science bg peers. I will admit, I am afraid that it will be too much and i might fail, I am not a quiter and can put in hard work, just don'tknow if my age, background and not so sharp brain deserves a try given I have more fingers pointing as a I can't do it and rather raise your kids speakers. Again if this was waste of time for you, shake it off , I am sorry but I had to put this question out for real opinions. Thanks.
