Hi all, sorry if this is in the wrong area. I just turned 24 and finished my first year of post-bacc coursework. I've looked at it from every angle and it's going to take me another 2 years to finish my coursework, take my MCAT, and have my app as good as it can be. If everything goes according to plan I'll start medical school at age 27. This summer I have been participating in clinical research and have had the opportunity to shadow several different specialties and have loved surgery the most. I was wondering if any of you have started med school around age 27 and are considering surgery. Sometimes I get down on myself that it's taking so long and I'll be older than my peers.
