I am first year medical student and faced alot of obstacles in getting into medical school and during my first year. Some of the obstacles happen to any pre-medical or medical student, some are likely due to being over 40! I will be happy to answer any questions about challenges faced by someone applying to med school after 40 and dealing with medical school itself. Instead of giving a long "boring" autobiography, I think it would be more interesting to answer questions and I will share my experiences as I answer questions. But briefly, I applied to medical schools 3 times before being accepted, have a Ph.D. and currently am working two jobs while in school. I have done very well in all of my classes, except one class that I failed because of a personal crises (will remediate in the summer). I have alot of life experiences in several areas and hope my experiences can you all!
