So I know that med schools like to see that applicants who've taken a gap year don't just sit around and do nothing for a year. Unfortunately since graduating in May I've had a hell of a time finding a job that doesn't involve flipping burgers. That's not to say that I've done nothing. I've been helping my folks renovate their home, put in a HUGE garden, visited relatives, and have been hanging out with my little brother who I didn't get to see very often while I was an undergrad. I had some rather grand plans about what I would do during my gap year but have had to scale them back slightly. However, in another couple months I should be back on track. I guess my question is do you think med schools will look down on this? I'm still looking for work and have had a fantastic summer hanging out with my family and taking time to smell the roses. Are there any other gap year folks out there that are having problems finding work?
