let me get this straight...you were 28 yrs old in 1989, right? and yet you were "immature" at that time but now have grown up?
sorry, but you seem to have the shoulda, coulda, wouldas...and going back 20 yrs isn't what is going to fix the problems you are having now (and if you think coming out of the caribbean , 55 yrs old and looking to get into radiology is gonna happen, you haven't done enough research...its not 1989...).
im not saying looking for a career shift isn't a reason people switch to medicine (former A&P professor here!), but you have to be running TOWARDS something, not running away from the life you have...
and even if pathology and radiology were viable options, don't think for a moment that people interaction isn't important...even if its not patients, you still have to interact with other physicians, nurse, administration, etc...you still need to want to and like people to some extent.
i agree with thxleave, you need to talk to someone professional...and vmd does not fill that role...
and yes, you would have to take the MCATs again and that GPA is on the lower end of sgu applicants...
