    Is 25 yrs old too old to go to medical school? (Srs)

    25 years old
    Bachelors degree from meh state school, unrelated to medicine/biology, mediocre GPA ( was not interested at all in my field of study) sub 3.0 GPA, with zero sciences credits other than the required for my degree ( one biology class )
    I score very high on the LSAT, technically unrelated but do you think it would make up for my chit GPA? ( I can get into t6 law schools)

    I recreationally study biology, chemistry, medicine, physics etc and have done so for years. I score very well when I take MCAT practice tests. I do not have any doubt that I would perform well once in school, but getting in seems like it would be a HUGE problem givin my circumstances.

    I don't want to be old as fuk compared to other medical students, I feel like a joke even imagining myself in med school... Not too mention residency..

    Any miscers have any input?

    Edit:

    My GPA is low, it embarrasses me now, but I was young and had absolutely zero interest in my degree. It's safe to say I winged it through college, not studying, not even buying my textbooks in a few cases, not opening them in more :/.. I'm not a dumbass, I know I would do very well in anything I sincerely dedicated myself too. My LSAT scores are very high, which I hope would appeal to admissions as a substitute for my GPA. Do you think they would?

    Second problem is lack of science credits. I obsessed over the sciences the last few years, reading tons and tons.. Physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, etc but since it was on my own time I have nothing to show for it. No credit hours. Do med schools REQUIRE a set numbe of science credits ( biology/chemistry)?

    Third, I'm poor compared to med school standards/costs. Does scholarships and financial aid usually cover enough to live through school?

    Lol. You're fine, honestly, you're probably a more interesting candidate than the regular pool of applicants. You'd best have a good reason for wanting to go though.

    average age for med school is around 24-25 anyway brah. Age wise you are on track. I would be worried about financing the education though.

    How old is too old for a radiography (not radiology) degree? I've got an older buddy that is 46, he's talking about wanting to go back to school for radiography. Figure its a 2 year degree, then he wants to push on to a bachelors in healthcare administration. So that means he'll be (at best) about 50 or so with a new bachelors degree. I told him I don't know how the medical field is when it comes to age. I've seen older people still chugging along in the healthcare field

    average age of a first year med school student is 25 brah

    being real though, with a 3.0, your app wont even get looked at, no matter how well you do on the mcat.

    im guessing you are planning on going back to take the prerequisites (organic, gen chem, physics, biochem) then going to apply? If you ace all those classes, it should bring your GPA up enough

    you're definitely not going to get into any with those poverty as fuk stats bro (srs) i suggest you go to a CC and take the classes to finish the pre-med requirements (and get ALL A's) then apply to a grad program and get GOOD grades so you can apply to med school with a much better resume.

    (source: best friend went through this process)

    also check out this docu about doctors from harvard med first year to 20 year career point. you WILL be disappoint as much as i hate to say it.



    there's a doc there that fixed motorcycles during his 20's, and was gonna be an olympic lifter that started med school in his 30's.

    Age isn't the issue, these are the issues.

    1. Required classes. You have almost none of them. Generally the requirements are bio 1/2, chem 1/2, orgo 1/ (some 2 other biochem), physics 1/2, the rest you would have probably
    2. LSAT wouldn't be considered
    3. MCAT needed
    4. 3.0 too low to be considered for any American Medical school, would literally need all A's in above classes.

    Again age isn't an issue at all, but there are other issues

    when i went to my brother's white coat ceremony or some chit, there were a lot of 40+ yr olds.
    one of my friend taking pre-reqs and shes gonna be 26 soon
    i know another guy who is 29 and hes in his 2nd yr in med school in the Caribbeans...i dont think thats a safe route since most of the 25k residency spots are available each yr for MD/DO's

    to make u feel better...im 26 in nursing school LOL

    1. Required classes. You have almost none of them. Generally the requirements are bio 1/2, chem 1/2, orgo 1/ (some 2 other biochem), physics 1/2, the rest you would have probably
    2. LSAT wouldn't be considered
    3. MCAT needed
    4. 3.0 too low to be considered for any American Medical school, would literally need all A's in above classes.

    Again age isn't an issue at all, but there are other issues
    if he gets an amazing MCAT score like 39+ with 3.9 science gpa, i think his sub 3.0 cumulative gpa will be considered by some schools

    Ok I updated my OP a bit.

    My GPA is low, it embarrasses me now, but I was young and had absolutely zero interest in my degree. It's safe to say I winged it through college, not studying, not even buying my textbooks in a few cases, not opening them in more :/.. I'm not a dumbass, I know I would do very well in anything I sincerely dedicated myself too. My LSAT scores are very high, which I hope would appeal to admissions as a substitute for my GPA. Do you think they would?

    Second problem is lack of science credits. I obsessed over the sciences the last few years, reading tons and tons.. Physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, etc but since it was on my own time I have nothing to show for it. No credit hours. Do med schools REQUIRE a set numbe of science credits ( biology/chemistry)?

    Third, I'm poor compared to med school standards/costs. Does scholarships and financial aid usually cover enough to live through school?

    never too old for grad school....my ex's mother(nurse) went in her 40's...finished around 48...i think your issue is gonna be poor past performance, even with outstanding MCAT scores..also i am reasonably sure there are science course requirements..1 year bio, 2 yrs chem(including organic) and 1 yr physics...you need to take some undergrad classes first.
    Don't struggle just lift!

    You'll get interviews if you do good in the science classes you need to take and get a 28+ on the MCAT. Schools will overlook a low gpa if you have a good MCAT score.

    So if I went to a community college and made A's on every required science class it would be enough?

    Making the As isn't my problem, I'm worried I will waste my time taking the classes and med school admissions will laugh at me for taking the classes at a CC when other applicants have full four year degrees in related feilds and stellar overall GPAs

    buddy relax, I think avg age for most schools is 24-26. The neurosurgeon I shadow got his first job as an attending when he was 38!!! Never too late, imagine when your 40 and still strong/active regretting your decision not to pursue medicine. Look at carib schools maybe, Also many schools in Canada drop your worst year. I had a spring course with someone in his late 30's who an engineer for many years but decided to pursue medicine so its never too late brah!

    Like i said, its not a matter of being to old to go back to school. But whats the point if you don't get hired for a job when you get done because there are half a dozen people behind you just as qualified that are younger. Now you're just a well educated old guy
