I was wondering how many people on here have continued to shadow AFTER they have already been accepted and committed to a school?

I plan to shadow again once I have more free time, which will hopefully be in the spring. Once school starts, the next time we are in a hospital or doc's office we might have the pressure of being graded! I want to enjoy one last stress free observation before that! lol

I would like to, but working full time makes it dam near impossible unless burning vacation days.

That's how I feel! I would love to also, but I need to work as much as I can, while I can, so I have some money when school starts :/.

Your question is similar to: Continue working after winning the lottery?

It's up to you.

May depend on if you have already completed your undergraduate degree or if you already graduated?

Way I see it is if you apply during your Senior year in college and get accepted then I would focus more on my undergraduate degree than shadowing.

But if you have already graduated and have really nothing better to do then why not?

Try to get a part time job at a podiatrist's office near the school you are going to attend.
Do you really think it would be possible to manage a job while in Podiatry school? I'm just curious because I have been trying to figure out whether or not I should look for a job, or even attempt to have one.

Unless it is something very flexible and part time I would say no, certainly no career track jobs. I remember friends in undergrad who worked campus jobs such as desk attendants where you could study most of the time, that would be doable.

I filled out on my FASFA that I would do work/study. Kent said during my interviews that's what a few students do there to make some money ($8-$10 an hour positions). Probably what I will be doing if I have to.

Just keep in contact...cards/emails/etc

Go do things you've always wanted to do because you're never going to have time once school starts.
