I am a very non-traditional student who finally got the chance to persue medical school. I\'ve deleted most of my posting since there is not much useful information. All I know is that applying early doesn\'t help much unless you are totally awesome. Being older is definately a strike against you, as is having community college. My application was verified at the very beginning of the cycle, and I had only one interview and not a peep from anyone else come December. It\'s good to be positive, but it\'s better to be realistic.
Summary of Experience:
Must send a picture and SAT scores. They emailed me months later that they were concerned that my MCAT was below a 28. So if your MCAT is below a 28, expect to be discriminated against, even though they do not mention cutoffs on their website.
