Do I have a chance getting into Medical School? I am a late bloomer. help!?

So, I started off moving to New Mexico for my undergrad from Boston (I am 26 now). I did not like my course of study and had a 2.8 GPA. I moved back to Boston to attend Business school at Bentley University. It was an incredible struggle getting in but I was determined. I graduated with a 3.0. That could be the dagger in the throat. But I got a solid job at Blue Cross Blue Shield in finance and have been there for about a year. Here is the kicker, I have epilepsy and recently had a near death experience. I knew that I wanted to help people after I left the hospital. More specifically neurology. I took 1 science course in college. SO HERE IS MY PLAN: I will attend harvard extension school, or umass boston for post bacc study, take the sciences, get around a 3.35 (being reasonable) and become sponsored by a professor there and take the MCAT which I will score around a 27-31. BUT I DONT HAVE MONEY!!!!! I I would have to be self supporting which means working full time at BCBS (I cannot risk losing that job so dont know what to do it...) WHICH means I would not have time for medical research/shadowing/volunteer at a facility. I could get my pre med done in about 2.5 years while working full time at BCBS. I dont know how I would have time to take the labs during the day...(SAP STORY): I raised myself (parents were drunks!) and have NEVER had ANYTHING handed to me. OH and I will be having brain surgery performed on me in 4 months. Talk about obstacles... I have an incredible will and personality. PLEASE take everything into consideration and give it to me straight/give me suggestions. If I can not be MD I will not pursue anything at all.. I went to New Mexico to major in golf management for my passion for golf. I played on the golf team. I transfer to Bentley and played on the golf team and worked full time and went to school full time! The MMEDIC Program (Modular Medical Integrated Curriculum) Is offered ONLY to BU undergrads in very good standing. I did not go to Boston University, but the OTHER BU! (Bentley University). I also mentioned that if I cannot make MD than I will not pursue medical field at all... BTW I majored in Accountancy and minored in English Lit!!! Thanks!! keep the responses coming!!

Hey there, I think if you really want to become a doctor then you should do it, but you need to research it more and at least do a day of shadowing or two to find out if this is a profession that you would want to dedicate a good chunk of your life to. Being a doctor requires a lot more then just wanting to help people... More

You're not going to get into medical school. Your all or nothing attitude is not going to help you... More
