The Wife is WAAAAY onboard

Not only is she behind me going to medical school at 38 she also wants to go (she’ll be 40). She is leaning toward Physiatry. Myself, well… I hear so much about older student struggling with it but I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to be an Orthopaedic Adult Reconstructive Surgeon. I could not care less what anyone thinks. I know I’m getting into medical school and from there I just need a great Step one score (shoot for 230+) and I am in. Yes, believe me I know this is a ways into the future. I also know that it’s very possible to switch while in school SEVERAL times.

Bottom line: I am not worried about the length of any residency (and possible fellowship). I am ready to ROCK!!
