You worked 40 hours per week and completed 37 credits in one semester? You shouldn't even be worrying about med school rankings right now.I am currently on my second semester of college so I understand that its much too soon to predict. 4.0 GPA - 37 credits so far. Going for BA Bio. Starting to volunteer at UM Hospital and hope to find some MD's/DO's to shadow while there. Currently working 40 hours a week (I support myself). I just had a question about a leadership position. I am about to be bumped up to manager at my Walmart, would that be considered leadership? I do hope to do TA and/or help tutor students in the near future as well. I feel as if I am not doing enough with my time compared to other future applicants. I do not mind ranking on MD schools, just do not want lower 25. There is such a negative stigma in this forum on DO that I'm afraid to consider it an option. I hope to be back every 6 months to update until I finally start applying Thought it would be a cool idea to see how much I've grown applicant-wise.
Well I'd say he definitely has those credits from AP/dual enrollment. Some people come in with 40+ hours their first semester, but those are the easy classes that would help buffer their GPA in a potentially difficult major.You worked 40 hours per week and completed 37 credits in one semester?
