Hi guys! I need some help. I just graduated from college in December. I had planned to become a CNA but after orientation, I found that it was not for me. Now I am deciding not to work. I plan to volunteer, shadow a DO, and study really hard for the MCAT. Will not working be detrimental to my acceptance to medical school. If it is, what jobs should I look at. So far, I was looking at being a lab assistant, phlebotomist, or a Patient Care Tech (people say it's the same as a CNA). Please help. What should I do?
