    I am graduating in the fall of my senior year instead of the spring. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do during the spring semester of senior year? I've already done a significant amount of research and I have no desire to do an MD/PhD. Here are some options I've come up with ...please help me add more

    volunteer abroad (projects-abroad.org) (how are these projects anyways, anyone tried them?)

    school/take more classes and get a BS in biochem instead of a BA

    find a job with some clinical experience (not sure hat kind of job I should find)

    this is hard to do because you need all types of certification, etc. with a master's degree, i tried to break into clinical labs at the hospital and found out i would have to go back to school for additional training, etc.

    on the job front -- it is going to be hard to find an employer who will be okay if you are leaving in 6 months (it's just not cost-effective when you think of training time, etc).

    other ideas off the top of my head -

    volunteering - hospice, hospital, etc
    shadowing a physician
    teaching/tutoring (i.e. for kaplan or princeton review)
