    Anyone have good ideas for summer jobs (medically related or not)? The last job I had was in a restaurant and I would like to try something else.

    it just occured to me. You could be a TA or tutor for people taking the intro bio sequence during the summer. I think that the classes are something like 1.5 months long so you could probably fit it in your schedule

    Maybe do some clinical research, teaching/tutoring, or maybe be a camp counselor?

    I'd want something light and part time.

    edit: I'm also going to be continuing volunteer work I'm involved in.

    Try asking people in certain departments at your undergrad school. My school pays TAs that don't want credits :). You could also advertise yourself as a private tutor, or try asking departments/professors at a nearby community college... they might be very happy to have a person with a bachelors degree in ____ from X University TA for them, especially if you did very well (which I assume you did since you're going to med school next year).

    HAHA you'd actually make BY FAR the most money stripping, so it might not be such a bad idea

    Why don't you contact camps in your area? Or look in the newspaper for people that need nannies? Do you have a campus resource center? They probably have info about different summer job options. There isn't really a magic resource that people can point you to for summer job info, you're going to have to do some research for yourself and stop relying on everyone else to figure this out for you.

    and it will look great on your CV, especially if adcoms are like me, and have a complete lack of morals.

    Now THAT kind of an EC will get you into harvard without even doing an interview. Although, prostitution is quite a jump from stripping, not that stripping is the greatest job ever...

    If you like kids, is there a community center or a YMCA in your area? You could potentially get a job at a summer program for kids. I think the Y usually needs swimming instructors, too, but I'm not sure if that would be a paid or volunteer job. Also, if you're going to be in africa for a month, it may be difficult to get a traditional "summer job". Is there a temp agency in the area that you could contact? They may be able to set you up with something (that will probably be crappy, but if you get desperate...)

    Definitely strip (and provide photographic evidence of your exploits). Ton of money, and you'll have a leg up on the competition :thumbup:

    well i imagine prostitution is rather risky, but that's what admissions commitees like to see, right?

    Being an escort is a good way to meet a lot of interesting people while making a lot of money. On top of which, you never know when someone might be an adcom member! Yay!
    Imagine the looks on their faces when they see you at the interview :D

    And unlike strippers, you'll know that you're actually helping someone out with a problem, and not just teasing them about it. The med schools will like that!
