Hello SDN, I come here in search of intelligent, fun conversation and advice; Im glad I found this site. I have somewhat of a unique situation as a pre-medical student and Im sure that someone here can relate and maybe give me some advice. I am a 21 year old pre-med at temple. I also am a practicing assistant physical therapist (cant do evals and certain modalities as a pta)working in a very unique situation where I get to do outpatient ortho, tcu rehab, acute care and long term care all on one campus. I work full time and go to school full time as well; and I am expecting a 3.8-4.0 range cummulative gpa at the end of the semester. I am active in extra-cirriculars at school (treasurer of our pre-soma chapter (word life XAN!) and active in pre-amsa aswell). When I began college 3 years ago I had plans on getting my pta (associates) and then working as an assistant while getting my bach/masters level degree. Much has happened over the last few years with apta politics (wont get into it, but its on the pre-pt board Im sure), and I have not had the sort of experience I thought I would working in the field thus far. I decided on my first acute care affiliation that I would be pursuing something else. I I suppose I am concerned about explaining my choose to change career paths during my admissions process. Im not sure if that is really somthing to be concerned over actually, but I have been thinking about it. Anyone else in a similiar situation? Is there anything more I can be doing to make myself a better applicant?
