So, I had the great idea last summer to take a gap year to improve my application and get some real world experience and whatnot. I had a really great health related job that was all lined up but then that got cancelled. I then had a great AmeriCorps position lined up that lost funding. Then I had an OK office job that was kind of related to health and whatnot, but that position was eliminated due to budget cuts. Soo...its looking like this year I am going to be working as a paperwork b**ch for an insurance company, a substitute teacher, a cashier at the local grocery store or some other terrible job. Are med schools going to look down on this? I already have 5 interviews lined up and I'm really not looking forward to the "so, what are you doing now?" question. I have a great summer job that wasn't on my primary, so I can talk about that. But is this going to be the kiss of death for my app?
