  1. @Birdy Thank you for commenting. I've read you blog front to back a few times over. It's been a constant source of inspiration for me when things feel a bit too big. I'm a fellow maritimer (New Brunswick... used to spend all my summers in Crapaud) and it's been awesome to see you go from a premed student and a mom to a doctor and still an awesome mom. Life unfortunately got in the way with me starting school next fall, but I'm still plugging away and will be starting Sept 2021. In a way I'm really happy that I'll be starting from square one at this age. I feel like I have a very clear path, I know what I want and I know how I'm going to execute things. I guess with age comes some clarity, lol. Thank you all for the comments! I can't wait to get my undergrad going and start looking at applying for medical school!
  2. Thank you for the advice. It's hard to start school at this age with young kids and a busy home life. I've been doing some prep work on my own prior to classes started, trying to refresh my brain, clear out all the cobwebs and rust. It's been going well, but I'll be darned if there aren't some days where I just feel like I've put myself on some kind of fools errand. And I haven't even 'officially' started yet. Ah well, the motivation and advice from yourself and others helps remind me of why I've been holding on to this dream for so long and how worth it it is to me. So, back to the books!
  3. Thank you for the blog to check out and the info on Queens. I'll definitely have to look some more into them. @freewheeler haha, thanks I think?
  4. Hello all. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I'm very much on the non-traditional side of things. I'm 30, a mother of two and starting this all out without even an undergrad or EC to my name. I'm starting a BSci next fall with the aim to apply for med school afterwards. It's ambitious and probably five kinds of crazy, but I know it's the route for me. I've wanted medical school for a long time, but let life events and my circumstances dictate the direction my life would take. I'm finally putting the foot down and taking back the control and doing things the way I've wanted to for a long time. I know it's going to be hard, I know there's lots I may have to sacrifice... but to me it's going to be worth it in the end. My end goal (at the moment, subject to change as all things are), is to become a family physician working in one facet or another with military members and/or their families. My husband is in the military, I'm joining the reserves in a few short months... I feel like it's a community I'm passionate about helping. But yeah, that's me. I look forward to learning as much as I can about the profession and the application process in the years to come. Any advice people want to throw my way is welcome. I know it's a big leap, especially starting out where I am and I understand I may not be successful at the end of all of this... but I want to at least say I tried.
