My Journey to and through Medical School...
Congratulations! The perfect day!
CONGRATS!!! Your pics are beautiful!
Congratulations! I've been following along your journey for the last 4 years and you are such an inspiration! Continue to let your spirit shine thank you for sharing!
So what made you decide to get into medicine which is one of the hardest degrees to accomplish at such a late age
I always want to be a doctor since high school...and an opportunity (idea) presented itself, so I took it...
Congratulation!! you are an inspiration for us all! I will be joining Ross University this September, you have played a big part of this decision!
My heart just warmed for you! I cannot begin to imagine the elation you must feel to get to this point. This post was perfect. We all followed you on your journey by reading your blogs. It was only fit to show the result of all that hard work by showing pictures. Wise people say that a picture is worth a thousand words, well my friend your 13 pictures are worth an unquantifiable amount of words. Congrats to you and your family. I start my journey this fall at UIC Chicago. I will continue to persevere just as you have and many before me. Again--Congratulations and Bravo Zulu!!
Thank you..and congratulations and best wishes on your journey...
Stunning, beautiful, well-deserved, just too many words to describe these pictures and your achievements!
Thank you....You're next#
This is great! I'm so happy for you. Congratulations! :)
Congrats! Are you accessible by email?
Yes..just like you sent this greeting..All messages go to email box...just include your contact information....I will not publish ..
I came across your story scrolling through my facebook page this morning, and reading it was truly motivating. I, too, am pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a physician after an almost 10 year career in chemistry. Deciding to buckle down and apply was probably the hardest decision to make, but I am pushing through. I wasn't accepted during the 1st application cycle, but after getting advice from the dean of admissions at my 1st choice school, hopefully this application round will be more successful. I refuse to give up! Thank you for continuing to follow your dreams!
You're an inspiration to us all. I'm so happy for you!

I saw your story and had to share how much of an inspiration you are to me. I have been toying with the idea of going back to school, and on my birthday of all days this is what is on my timeline. I believe God works in mysterious ways and speaks through unlikely spaces. Thank you for sharing your story. I will keep this bookmarked so you can follow my journey.
I just stumbled upon your blog and wow, Im where you were 8 years ago. I was sitting in my Cardiologists office yesterday and she looked at me and said "You dont seem happy with what you're doing Tom" I said "Im not" (even though Ive been very successful in my career) and she said "what did you always want to do?" "Be a Cardiologist" I said. "What are you waiting for then? Its never too late to go to medical school" Everyone has always discouraged me from going. Im now turning 38 in 4 months and this little spark from cardiologist was at the right time in my life. So I started planning tonight. Then I read your blog--well I have a flight tomorrow and I'll read the whole thing :) But Im so inspired by what you have written. I just want to congratulate you on your journey! So very few of us every think we can do what we really want to do. We dont dare to walk the path of our dreams. And thats because getting out of our own way is so very difficult. Thank you for sharing this amazing journey and again congrats on your dream coming true.
Tom, I am so proud of you already...Being brave enough to do something different takes courage, faith and believing in yourself and in your Creator...You must believe you have everything you need for this journey both naturally and spiritually...Every need is and will be met...It was definitely a walk of faith...Believing after you complete your prerequisites, a door will open and you will get into Medical school...Daily strengthen yourself for the journey...Do not neglect your mind, body and spirit...Recognize and acknowledge your SOURCE...and I have no doubt you WILL ACHIEVE YOUR HEARTS DESIRES...NOW, GO LIVE YOUR DREAMS!
Congrats! Great pictures. I'm still very interested in having you on my podcast - The Premed Years. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Ryan

I have 34 years old...and I dream of medicine :))Greetings from Poland ! :)
Fantastic! God delivers on his promises if we remain stedfast,that's for sure. I'm so happy for you and your family!
Congrats Sis!!! Well done. :-)
Congrats!!! Inspiring. I'm 37 years old and about to start medicine. I'm a qualified specialist physical therapist with a masters in pain management and also a degree in psychology. My life has now taken me to start my studies in medicine. Any advice would be much appreciated?
Congratulations!! Your story is very inspiring. I am turning 40 and about to start med school in May. I felt thrilled when I got accepted. But I am also scared if physically I could handle the study load or not at this age. You look great on your graduation photos. I'd appreciated if you have any advice.
Over a year later....Updates? How goes residency?
