I have been a co author in 3 papers so far . It's a lot of work and a huge time commitment. I was wondering, are they worth it for getting into med school or should I stop asking professors if they need help with their research. I usually spend 3 hours a day 5 days a week on this , and if I stopped working on papers I could study more MCATS/other pre med activities. Let me know and thanks for the advice!
