Hi, I'm new to this forum and the web site, but I really do need some suggestions. I received my undergraduate degree and now trying to finish pre-req. for med school. I'm interning part-time using the degree that I obtained and working part-time and taking courses. My grade will not be that good for this quarter and I'm getting discouraged by it. Many people think that I should work full time first and go back to school. I tried to take science classes before finish with bachelor but it didn't work out too great. Therefore I decided to concentrate on my major and then eventually will come back to finish pre-req. for medical school. Should I take full-load of science courses while working or should I take it easy with just 1-2 course(s)? If I take it easy with working, and volunteering, what will the admission committees think? Will they see a good side to this non-traditional applicant like me? I made a lot of mistakes in the past in my freshmen and sophomore years, and now I'm trying to correct it. I work close to 40 hours per week as an intern and paid part-time job. I don't want this to be an excuse, but I feel I don't have a lot of time to study. I want to keep up with my knowledge I obtained but I feel that it's preventing me to do well in science. Should I quit? I really want to get accepted into medical school, but I don't have any advisor to discuss with since I'm attending at community college awaiting for being admitting into the University as a post-bacc. Thanks so much in advance if anyone decide to post to my message. Jip "Thailand is the land of smile"
