Mature Students


New Member
Can any current students tell me roughly the age of the oldest student they know about in the medical school, whether they are in now or finished recently? I will be applying in a couple of years and although med schools say they don't discriminate based on age, it is pretty obvious some of them make it one of their main decision making factors.

Thanks! Did you find that online? I know I will sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I have the feeling that the places that publish these figures are the ones that don't discriminate.
