You may still qualify for financial aid. You can take the necessary pre-med requirements by attending night school, but you would need to quit your job (almost definitely) when you would start medical school. I would talk to some of your local colleges to see if they offer the necessary night classes for a pre-med curriculum, and then see if they would offer you the financial aid you would need.

I did know one lawyer who went through first year of medical school while maintaining her legal career part time. I believe she dropped out of medical school after the first year.
