    Hello everyone!!

    I wanted to stop by this new site after many, many years away and to share that as of yesterday I have officially matched into a pediatric residency, which has always been my dream!!!

    My OPM story was basically that I was a super non-trad, not so much in age but my background was in arts, who started med school (D.O. which I have LOVED) at 30. In my graduating class there are actually quite a few >30 now and a few in their 40’s/50’s. On top of all the usual med-school nonsense I actually also had a baby during my 3rd year, which was AMAZING and I’m so glad I did it!!!.

    Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say hello and let you know that it IS possible. I was def not the BEST student, my scores were not amazing and I had to build my science knowledge from nothing.. But, I have had a phenomenal experience over the past four years in med school & I am SO glad I found this site all those years ago.
    I wish you all well as you start/continue on this journey & hope to see you all on the floors someday!
