Hi SDN, To tell you guys a little bit about myself: I am a 25 year old strategy consultant for pharmaceutical companies in a major metropolitan area. I graduated from a top 20 school (Ivy League) with a degree in Biological Sciences and a GPA of ~3.5. Throughout most of college, I always had medical school in the back of my mind, but wasn't quite sure whether I wanted to commit to medical school, so while I have all the curricular requirements, I never took the MCAT. I then decided to obtain a Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering from the same school and graduated with a GPA of ~3.6. In terms of extracurriculars, I participated in a D1 sport (which took up much of my time there) and have a lot of physician shadowing experience and some volunteering. So that was college... After graduating with a Masters, I was able to land a job in strategy consulting. After having been with the firm for close to two years, and while the benefits (salary, perks, etc.) are nice, I am realizing that this may not be what I want to do for the rest of my life. I think the main reason for wanting to leave my sense that there is a lack of purpose, and the fact that all the firm focuses on (even though they don't want to admit it) is generating more sales. I am feeling drawn back to medicine and have been encouraged by friends and family that I would make a good physician and that this would be suitable career. I understand that you need to be committed in order to pursue medicine and again and again I have felt myself drawn back to it. I am just trying to get a better sense of how achievable a transition into medicine would be. Is it too late? Will I not be able to make a strong enough case at this point? Should I pursue a post-bacc program to strengthen my background and get letters of recommendation (at this point, I am out of touch with the professors at my school)? If yes, which ones are the best ones to apply to? Or should I just quit, take 3 months to study for the MCAT and apply in June? I welcome any thoughts, perspectives and honest opinions Maybe there are a few of you who have been in similar situations.
