Hello all future doctors, I am in a quest for information! I get the sense that some schools are friendlier to applicants over 30 (like me) than others. Can I do like a status check against the message board? Please tell me if I'm wrong about any of this ~ Older students O.K: Western U (D.O.) Jefferson George Washington Temple Tulane Forget about it: Any UC-school Any top-top-top school (Johns Hopkins, etc...) Additions? Deletions? ****** Basically, I've got to get my strategy together. Yes, I'm older but I did really well in undergrad and graduate school (both business degrees). GPA is 3.6-ish. I'm very confident in my ability to do the same during pre-med and I think my MCATs will turn out okay too. But if some of the really good schools are hostile to 30+ I need to know where they are. A local post bacc program has linkage to Western U's D.O. program. I'm also kinda wondering if I should go for the "surer" thing -- link to Western U -- or take a risk and aim for more competitive med schools. Question of the day: Assuming (BIG ASSUMPTION) I'm a 3.5-er in post bacc with above average MCATs & over 30 years old, which schools will be interested in me? Which won't give me a second look?
