I am 22 years old and I just finished my undergraduate degree from a good public institution in Texas. I have completed all the pre med reqs except for 8 hours of physics (including lab). I was originally pre-med which explains why I completed most of the reqs, but I changed my mind during my undergraduate years. There are a few things I need to get done and I would appreciate input on how I should go about them. I plan to stay in Texas for medical school. I have not taken Bio chem so I will not be applying to UTSAs Med school. 1. Take the MCAT. I am purchasing http://www.amazon.com/Examkrackers-...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1230695160&sr=1-2 and plan to take the exam in April. 2. Take physics classes at a community college. Should I take them before or after the MCAT? Does the study guide linked above review physics? If so maybe I can take the classes in the summer after the MCAT? 3. Lab experience. I have no hospital work or lab research experience. What should I do here? 4. Applying. I missed the deadlines for fall 09 so it looks like I have a year and a half to go.
