    Gap year humanities/non-STEM opportunities that are not service?

    I'm not particularly interested in the conventional options available for pre-med gap years (e.g. biomedical/clinical research, volunteering, clinical work, etc.), which means that the resources available to me are also fairly limited, and I'm not quite sure where to even start. My personal...

    How to improve my non-trad chances in 5 hrs a week?

    I'm 30, and in my fifth year of a PhD program in the humanities. I'm writing my dissertation, and I *should* be done in June 2019. Meanwhile, I'm taking my MCAT June 1 and will apply to med schools this summer -- my state school is my #1 choice, but I have a short list of 5 other institutions to...

    Not a "Science Person"

    Nontraditional on a couple of fronts, just dipping my toe into the water of seriously considering a career shift. But despite the persistence and depth of my interest in medicine and medical research (over the past, say, 5 years), I've only recently started giving it serious thought, mostly...

    Does sociology count as a non-science for letters of recommendation for med school?

    Hi Everyone, I developed a great relationship with my Intro to Sociology prof, and she enthusiastically agreed to writing me a LOR. Does sociology count as a non-science? I understand that it's a social science course. But we didn't do any actual typical "science" stuff in the class. It felt...

    I attend UT Austin and was invited into the Honors Humanities program. the program itself looks very appealing: you pick a topic of interest and create your own curriculum, you're guaranteed scholarship money--and study abroad scholarship money, and you graduate with honors. However, all...

    Humanities Majors and Research for T20 Medical Schools

    This might be a dumb/obvious question, but since the elite medical schools tend to place a lot more value on research, how do humanities/non-science students get accepted?

    MD & DO BS in EMS or BA in Philosophy

    Hi there everyone! This is my first post on SDN, but I've read through quite a few discussions and figured I'd seek some advice on something I've been contemplating. Let me start by saying that I know it's not important to ADCOM's what your undergrad major is per se, as long as you've...

    Questions about UC transfer credit limit

    Hi everyone, been lurking for some time now. But I finally decided I needed to make an account and join the club. I know a lot of people have already discussed the question of taking pre-reqs at CC, but don't worry that isn't my question. My question is regarding to transfer credits for my...

    Liberal Arts Core Curriculum

    I go to a school that places a huge emphasis on its core curriculum of humanities courses. Personally, I can't stand it and find these courses more demanding and challenging than the courses pertaining to my major. If for some reason I end up with a few B's (or God forbid C's) in these courses...

    FIRST ISSUE OUT NOW: http://issuu.com/themuse_magazine/docs/muse_issue_1_fall_2015 Needless to say, I “survived” my first day of internship only to come home and have a cathartic cry given the feelings I harboured toward myself. At that very moment, I did question whether I was cut out to be a...
