So heres the story (I think I posted this on SDN before but I guess its changed now): I graduated last may and this is my off year. I was planning to get a job and work until medical school starts but finding a job has been difficult. I started searching for a job in august (because I was planning on retaking the MCAT but decided not to take it) and now I finally found a job, at the end of November. I had been sitting at home with no interviews (no job) until now and now I have to go to few of interviews (and I am suppose to start training for job now). Obviously, I have to postpone it because I have to go to interviews. Now its almost December and so I am assuming I probably have two or three months to work because I was planning to go out of country for vacation before I dedicate all of my time and summers to medicine. Then, I was planning to go to whatever school I get into (hopefully, crossing fingers, and knocking on wood) two or three months before schools starts to do research or participate in some kind of a familiarization program. Since I graduated I figure I can do this and dont need to take a break like most traditional matriculants. My parents dont care and they say just stay at home and do nothing (dont take the job) as long as you need to. They are very cool about it. But when I go to interviews and they ask what I am doing I dont want to say nothing because that will look bad and will hurt my chances of getting into medical school. Now if I go to the job I will probably need to take days off for 3 to 5 more occasions, which will not be good. Obviously if I need to take days off (because of interviews) and the manager says NO, then of course I quit, but whats the point of starting a job if Im going to quit in two to three months. So what should I do: A) Start the job and whatever happens, happens. B) Explain to the interviewer that theres no point in getting a job now. C) Explain to the interviewer Im hoping to come to medical school couple of months early and so decided not to take a job for two months. D) Or is there another option that I am not aware of, if so PLEASE TELL ME. Thank you so much for your time and input.
