I'm 19 and finished a BS in biochemistry, premed, last year. I have a one year old, and am now debating between applying to a physician assistant and med school. I am now taking prereqs for PA while trying to work out which path is right for me.
I'm 26 and plan to apply to med school in 2005, the funny thing is that this year I was supposed to have graduated with an MD had I stayed on the med school path after finishing my biology degree. BUT, there is no way I would have learned as much about life, people and personal strength as I have from being a mother to two children (2.5 years, 8 months). Now I am definitely more mature and ready for it, bring it on!
I have 57 credit hours complete towards my MD pre-reqs and I was feeling really confident until I took Claculus!
I have a 10, 9, 7, and 6 year old. Im married to a wonderful support man. Its a hard, hard road but I have to believe!!!
