Post-Bac Possibilities

  • 0

“It’s never too late” . . . “Think when, not if” . . . and “Hey, it ain’t over ‘til it’s over” . . . These are things I hear myself saying on a fairly regular basis.  To be candid, I sometimes wonder if I’m building up false hope.  Is the end goal of admission to health professional school really possible for all F&M graduates as long as they’re fully committed?  Is “it’s never too late” a helpful reminder or a mere platitude?  It could only be a meaningless cliché if everyone already knew it, I suppose, and given the number of pre-health students I see who are ready to throw in the towel, “it’s never too late” is far from a universal belief.  So is there a way of getting from college to health professional school for nearly everyone, really?  Yes.  How do I know?  Because post-bac programs make it so.
