This is a great article. I know DO schools are more traditionally friendly, but just wanted to point out that many MD schools are too. I'm at an MD school, and we have nontraditional ages enrolled. Especially in the class below me for whatever reason. But definitely in my class also. I think the oldest is mid-forties. Pretty neat. I am not sure what specialties they want.

Most nontrads seem to go into primary care fields, at least that the indication I get from the oldpremeds website.

Path-there is really a website called oldpremeds??? It seems like an insulting name... How old is old, anyway? I'm going to be 40 and suddenly it isn't so old anymore LOL! I just read this thread and I was curious...

Yep, here's the link:

http://www.oldpremeds.org/

I'm quite active there (as pathdr2b) and there's GREAT group of folks there, focused 99.9% of the time on topics related to med school. Lots, and lots of very useful info for the "super" nontraditional student!

This article brought me some hope and inspiration! I am just now starting on my journey and at times I have doubted not just my ability to make it happen, but also how my age will affect admission to any med school. Nice to know there are people my age and older reaching for their goal smile

Path201X, thanks for that link! I just registered!
