Hi there - I am a recently accepted applicant in my 30s and I chose not to tell anyone that I was even considering applying to medicine, except for my partner and my referees/verifiers. Similar to the other poster, I knew the odds were tough, and I didn't want people in my current career to think I was checked out. It was difficult at times to keep it secret (why was I volunteering so much? why was I always so busy? ...i.e. studying for MCAT, prepping application materials, interviews). But in retrospect I'm glad I kept it mostly to myself, as it meant there was less stress and expectation, and now I have the fun task of telling everyone and surprising them.
