Welcome to the forum. Generally a non-traditional student is anyone who did not do the traditional route of going straight into med school (plus or minus a gap year or two) from college. Many of us have previous careers, some for just a few years, some for a few decades. Many of us have spouses and/or children. Some come here before they have any college degree at all, and are returning to school after being in the military, or working in a trade that didn't require a bachelors degree.What makes a non-traditional student? I'd like to post here but don't know if I'm, uh, non-traditional. Is it just not doing pre-med in university?

(and don't be offended if someone insists on posting "well you aren't really non-traditional because..." since like I said, some people are "purists").

It was (an obscure) reference to a comment form a Supreme Court Judge, "I don't know what porn is, but I'll know it when I see it." The point being, sometimes it's easier to tell whether someone is a non-trad then to come up with a definition what a non-trad is.
