Ok, just a guess, but I bet I am not the only one who reads this site who is not a full time college student in the traditional sense of the word. Sure I go full time, taking 14 hours this term, but I also have 2 kids, a wife and a job that requires 40-50 hours/week of my time. Whining? Absolutely not (wouldn't have it any other way) Want sympathy? No, just send money!
Not sure what I want out of this post, it is just always good to know that you are not fighting the long hard battle by yourself. Just wondering if there are any other struggling non-trads out there and how the world is treating you.

I am also a non-trad going to school FT (first degree) but not working full time. I am married with two children, a dog and a cat. It is tough when you are embarked on this journey with a family but it is doable..good luck!

Me too :) Married, two kids, school ft, work pt. volunteer 3 hrs. a week. Already have a bachelors in Mass Comm. But, luckily, only 25. (didn't take me too long to figure out that I really DID want to be a doctor after all :))

Do you really think "life experiences" are a good thing when applying to med school?
