    Hello,
    i have a little problem and i want to ask you guys for your suggestion.

    I have this great summer intership at this medical school waiting for me for this summer. But i already did this internship last year in the summer. But this years is upper level as you can say.

    But in order me to graduate in 4 years (2009) i should be taking 3 summer classes. In order to just graduate without being supper senior ;) .

    during this summer if i choose to take the classes i have an Opportunity to do research while taking the classes. And also i will be able to shadow a doctor at some other medical school.

    Which one would you guys prefer staying in school for 5 years or getting out of school in 4 years. should i go with the internship or the other option.
    Thank you very much

    So your options are (a) summer internship and graduate in 5 years or (b) 3 classes + research + shadowing and graduate in 4?

    I have to say that option b sounds too spread out. I spent a summer doing research and taking one evening class, and it really stretched me thin. Three summer classes is pretty much a full load in itself (you'll probably be in class about 6 hours a day, 5 days a week). I say go with the internship unless there is a serious financial incentive for you to graduate in 4 years.
