I've on a gap year now ( I didn't get in last year ) and I'm currently working a job that really isn't what I want and living at home with my parents since my job doesn't pay enough to really live here. I'm living paycheck to paycheck even in my parents home paying them a very small amount for rent. I really don't want to stay with my parents anymore and want to get a place of my own. I want to know if this would be fine as far as my applications are concerned. I'm a little worried though as I really didn't have good EC's. I just never stuck with any activities too long in school, partly due to financial and logistical reasons. I also (probably) made the mistake of saying I planned to stay with my current job in my personal statement so I don't want to look even flakier to dental schools if I get asked about work in an interview and it turns out I quit. Even if I left it would be hard, my job won't transfer to another city and I have about $20 in my savings account so with no job no one would let me move into an apartment. It feels lika a purgatory, I'm really struggling with negative feelings and loneliness here, what would you do in my shoes?

Why don't you tough it out for another months or so until you complete your interview before quitting your job or moving out?

It's probably my best option. I kinda hate to bail on my coworkers and when I interviewed for the job I told my boss I would stay till dental school, but there was a reason they had this opening, it just doesn't pay enough to live here. I'm pretty intimidated by the thought of moving somewhere else, but I think its going to be best for my mental health. I honestly don't think I can continue what I'm doing long now.

I like MUSC, I think Charleston would be a great place to go.
