heres the deal.. i just finished my first year of undergrad and I had a bunch of AP credits back from high school in bio, econ, chem, etc.. it looks like i will finish all classes for my bio degree by the end of my 3rd year. so it would make sense to take the MCAT this year and probably apply during Fall 2012. lets assume i get a 3.9+ gpa and a 33+ MCAT. problem is i have no volunteer work, hospital experience, etc... I need to know how I can cram in a bunch of stuff before the application deadline next year. I know this sounds kind of stupid, but who would take the extra year after getting their degree and MCAT score to apply? I'm really just aiming for instate (michigan) so U of M, michigan state, and wayne state is pretty much what i am looking at. im guessing volunteer at a hospital/shadowing would be the first thing, but how do i get into research programs, and what else should i do? you guys seem to have done it all, so im sure you can help. thanks!
