WAIT!.....is this guy serious?
There's plenty of adults who choose to continue their education throughout their lives and I don't find anything ridiculous or weird about that.

I remember meeting a lot of people quite older (and much more serious about school) than me when I was studying in undergrad -- with the average American changing his career at least three times in his lifetime and with life expectancies increasing, continuing education is becoming much more common than it was 50 years ago.

Best of luck to you kikaida01! #grin

You should be like a mentor-person for weirdo's like me worried about how old I'll be when I graduate. Inspiring.

it's all about interest, if you're 100% interested in a field, then dont worry about the wait.

In the beginning I used to worry a lot about the years, and I wanted to be really young when I graduate, but now i'm less bothered.

The main thing is getting into what interests you.

I'm actually very proud of Kikaida01 for making the choice to study medicine. It shows that he is still young in spirit and that is what counts. It also shows courage. I admire you Kikaida01... May God bless you.

"If He can bring you to it, He shall bring you through it!" and "All things are possible through Christ strengthens me!"

Keep your head up.#yes
