The thread entitled "what if I start late?" has been moved to the Pre-Allopathic forum. I would like to take this opportunity to remind all SDN community members to try and post messages to the appropriate forum. The Allopathic forum is reserved for the discussion of issues related to medical education, being a medical student, our healthcare system, and other similar topics. Posts that deal with premedical issues (e.g., admissions to medical school) are not appropriate to the Allopathic forum. Please post such threads in the Pre-Allopathic forum.
