I am a 35-year-old single mother of a 16-year-old and have an undergraduate degree in Criminology (with a health minor). I didn't take a lot of science courses, but pretty close to what I need to get into my school of choice (U of Minnesota MD program). I had a 3.71 GPA, and a 3.97 GPA in science & health classes. I also have a law degree. I took biomedical ethics and medical malpractice in law school. I always wanted to go to vet or med school, but I went to law school, dropped out twice, and finally finished because it seemed easier. I don't want to be a lawyer. I don't think I ever really wanted to. I would need to take several science classes just to prepare for the MCAT. I'm realizing how I never did what I wanted, and I'm running out of time. I'm wondering if I'm too old, and with my lack of science background and fact that I am only considering one school, if there is much point applying. I could also much more easily go get a second bachelors degree in nursing and become a nurse practitioner eventually. Should I pursue that course instead?
