Hello! So wonderful to be here!

Hi oldpremeds! John Kelly here. Just thought I’d introduce myself. I’m currently taking classes at a local CC w/ plans to transfer next semester or next fall (sophomore year)I’m 25 and I’m just getting back to school after a long hiatus. Worked as a musician for 5 years. Wanted to be a doctor since I was ten…that desire’s only getting stronger. Became an EMT over the summer. Volunteering in a local ED. … Beginning to trudge the premed path! Grateful to have found such a wonderful network at such an exciting & challenging time.

Welcome John! Glad to have you join OPM.


Welcome to this journey! Keep us posted on your progress.

Welcome John! (is it Johnnyboy, and not JohnBoy?

Sounds like you are off to a good start!



I just discovered this wonderful group, and at a great time…have been thinking I’m so old at 47 (almost 48) applying to med school. I’ve been a registered dietitian for over 20 years, and have written 3 books and speak internationally on weight loss surgery…hoping to be an obesity medicine physician.

I’ve been inspired reading the posts so far, so thanks to all for being here!



Welcome, Margaret!

Put your running shces on (or better yet, roller skates!) and jump right in!!
