Newly Informed Old Premed ,

Just WOW

I stumbled across this podcast after doing a search for premedical podcasts, and accidentally finding this podcast and Dr. Gray’s work was the BEST thing that has happened to me in my journey to medical school. As a 30-something interested in becoming a physician, I had SO many questions, and Dr. Gray has been the most informative source of information I have EVER come across. I now feel confident that I have all the information I need to successfully navigate my postbac and medical school application. I wish I would have known about Dr. Gray’s work earlier.

The push I needed

The information that Dr. Gray provides has helped me find my path!

So encouraging!

I listened to every episode in a matter of a few weeks and now I recommend Dr. Gray to anyone thinking about medical school! There is such a wealth of knowledge for any premed and for anyone who is worried about being too old or too unusual for med school. (Here’s a hint: YOU’RE NOT!) I listen to all of Dr. Gray’s podcasts now and find other premeds at school come to me seeking advice (guess I’ve been paying attention😉) Dr. Gray is a beacon of hope in a world that likes to make people feel like they are not enough. You are enough (!) and he will show you how to prepare yourself and present your strengths to prove it to admissions committees.
