It will be my senior year, and I am currently conducting a meta-analysis in my lab that my professor is going to co-author and publish with me in the fall. I will also be studying for the MCATs and taking 2 neuro classes. I also wanted to take a public health class that has an extensive research commitment to it and is extremely time consuming, but also life-changing for many students. Basically, I can't take that class AND write a thesis on my work while doing everything else. I need to choose. I will already have a publication on my research, so will a thesis look that much better? I was extremely excited to take this intense public health services course, but I'm worried about how I will look to medical schools. Also, I already have lots of clinical and research experience, so I'm not worried about that. But, I didn't get the best grades in bio and chemistry my freshman year... Help!! Thesis or class??
