Happy Holidays guys, Quick Bio: 3.6/3.6 (Science/cGPA) - Honors College/Graduate May 09' Many ECs (Clinical/Volunteer/Tutor, etc..) Great LORs Research for 2 years in the same lab (Mentor = MD/PhD so I shadow him as well) Research for 1 semester in different lab with other research interests 1 Poster Presentation (another pending); Attended another conference on scholarship no presentation however No Publications I will be taking the Kaplan MCAT Course from Jan - Apr and take the exam in May and do the best I possibly can with a variety of resources. My plan is to forgo a science minor this semester and go for the online public health minor so I can dedicate all my time this semester to research and the MCAT so I am taking a light course load. Should I sacrifice some time to get that science minor and help my sGPA a bit or use that time towards tackling the MCAT? Also if you were to prep with TPR what resources would you take advantage of with limited time (CBTs, ICC, Science Workbook, etc..)? Any recommendations or words of wisdom in getting accepted into a MSTP for entrance in the 2010 cycle that could better add to my application. I really have a passion for research and I would love to apply it clinically. Take care guys and good luck.
