Hello paoa219935,

If your mind is competent enough to handle the vast amount of information, if you are healthy, if you have the patience, self drive, self determination, and are willing to work very hard to obtain your Medical Degree, then go for it! Do not allow age to stop you from reaching your dreams of becoming a Medical Doctor. For age is nothing but a number and you are never too old to be what God has preordained for you to be in this world.

Best Regards,

Ezinne

Thanks. You have summarized very nicely the qualities one should have in order to appear for USMLE. Your these 4 lines are far better than the tons of information/advice available on net. Really nice. thanks again. Apart from studying i have decided to work on myself to imbibe these qualities in order to be successful in exams and in life as a whole.
