    I finally have my act together. I was wondering if it would hurt my chances applying as a 29 year old junior in college.

    I just got into med school...and I will be 31 when I start next year.

    At the last school I interviewed at, they said their oldest MS-1 was 45.

    Age doesn't matter. Make sure you have a strong app and you will be fine.

      agree with the previous post. age doesn't matter. as long as you have the will and the determination. its more likely that you will be viewed byt the school as mature and focused with your future goals of entering the medical field :thumbup:
