I'm 35 and will be done with prereqs in summer 2006, but have to wait till 2007 for matriculation, provided I've been accepted ('ll be 38-yikes!). Because I already have a degree, I have to complete all of my chem/physics to take the MCAT and will have to wait an entire year, even though I will have everything complete. I'll take extra courses, but its a whole year basically spinning my wheels :ouch:

I'm 35 with four kids (boy,10; boy, 7; girl, 6; girl 4). I am just starting my undergrad in January and plan for Med School Fall 2009.

I feel a little intimidated by youth and realize that there are certain specialties that I feel I should not attempt (i.e. surgery) due to age. However, I also feel that in many cases I will have an advantage over my younger counterparts as I have definitely LIVED all those years and grown as a result.

People are generally living so much longer these days than 50 years ago, even. Doctors, depending on the specialty, can work well into their 70's and 80's (I know a few :) ). IMHO, I don't feel like age should ever be a negative because everyone has something to offer to the profession (young and old).

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9

I'm 25 with a 6, 4, and 3 year old. Hope to enter med school at age 30. I'm almost finished with my MBA (this summer). I think people who wait until 30+ to enter, they can bring more experience to the table.
