Is it too late to apply to 30 at med school?

According to medical school admissions specialists, it's certainly possible for someone 30 years or older to be accepted into medical school. However, some people may incorrectly tell you that you are too old and that it is too late to apply to medical school or that you have a disability as an older applicant. I started medical school at exactly 31 years old. If you had asked me five years earlier if I saw this as a reality for me? I would have laughed.

I was too busy traveling the world, working from a laptop and generally having fun. Still, there are practical aspects that need to be considered. And some medical schools, judging by their admissions process, also consider them. So much so that I've heard rumors of schools in Hungary, for example, that actively discourage people over 30 from applying.

First of all, medical schools have no age limit. Technically there is no age limit for applying to medical school, and your age should not affect your application. As long as you meet the requirements, you can apply to the medical schools of your choice.
