Yeah, wasn't even considering putting the hospital volunteering on there, haha! It was a great experience, but it was also half my life ago and I don't remember the names of my supervisors or really what I even did! I've got plenty of relatively recent non-clinical volunteering so that should help - lots of soup kitchen, food pantry, random do-gooder stuff like that
As far as postbacc - I guess I'm using the wrong word there. I already have most of the prereqs I need (minus a 2nd physics and O-chem) but most of them are online (which is an automatic nope
at a lot of schools) or too old for some schools. To further complicate things, I'd love
to apply to UNC (I'll have IS residency by October) but I would literally have to take every single one of the 13 prereqs they require thanks to the 5-year recency requirement + no online prereqs deal... and idk, that seems a bit much just for 1 school to me.
Kind of leaning toward delaying applying until next year (although I am a horribly impatient person and want everything NOW) at the moment, because I'm pretty sure I could kill the MCAT given that much prep time. In the end, I think I'll have to do some digging as far as the schools I'm really interested in and see if retaking a chunk of the prereqs I took online in a real physical classroom would make any difference... OR if taking some upper-levels would be the better choice (they're certainly more interesting). Just feeling a bit stuck at the moment. I'm pretty much limited to community colleges where I live, and I don't know if those would be looked at any better than online. There doesn't seem to be a simple answer here!
Not sure if any of that makes sense... but neither does my life! The TLDR version: 1st BS (non-science major but started as an exercise phys major for 1 semester + had psych, stats, etc.) in 2006, worked and adulted for a bit, 2nd BS (nutrition) in 2016 - online through U of Alabama (including science prereqs - while working FT), dietetic internship 2017-2018, and here I am... so everything from the 1st BS is too old for some places, everything from the 2nd degree is too online for most places, and I just feel kind of ridiculous
