Hi all, Nontrad pre-vet here. I'm looking for some advice regarding full time vs. part time employment while taking classes. A bit of background: I currently work a full-time schedule at a non-vet related job. This summer, I started my prereq journey as a post-bacc student - I just completed Physics I and am currently enrolled in Physics II. Class runs M-F, for 1.5 - 3.5 hours nightly, in addition to the 1-hour commute each way. Needless to say, it's been mentally draining. In order to get to vet school in a reasonable amount of time, I've made it my goal to complete two classes per semester, starting this fall. I'll need to take all prerequisites, so by my estimates I'm heading down a 3-year road. To me, it seems that these classes will occupy just as much time as my current schedule, as they both have lab components. So, my question is - how would adcoms view a PT work (nothing too part-time, maybe 25-30 hours/week)/PT school schedule? Do you think this would reflect extremely poorly on my ability to handle multiple responsibilities? I'll admit that I'm not the best at handling stress, and the last thing I want to do is sacrifice my grades for a job that in the long run won't matter very much. So, right now, I don't feel confident that I can handle the workload of two classes and a full-time job. I've considered going back to school full time, but I don't have residency currently in the state in which I'm living (not for another year, at least) and cannot justify the financial expense of paying out-of-state tuition. I've also considered taking one class, but as I mentioned earlier, I'd like to minimize the time spent in part-time classes (and get to vet school sooner!!). Thanks all for your help in advance!!
