Hello everyone, I just graduated from Loyola University Chicago as a Biology major in the Honors Program and would like some advice on what you think I should do next year. I graduated with an overall gpa of 3.6 and BCPM of 3.63 and have pretty good ECs: 1) Worked at a hospital in admitting for 1.5 yrs, 2) Research assistant at a chicago medschool for half a year 3) Did research for >1 year at Loyola and got a scholarship for it, 4) Still volunteering at a hospital for >1 year in ED, 5) Was involved with Alpha Epsilon Delta as a national member, 6) Other stuff, not really medically related. I am currently applying to three Masters program around Chicago but I would rather avoid them due to cost. I would rather get a job that is major-related while still volunteering or even volunteer abroad. Another option is to simply take a couple classes at my university as a post-bach to simply keep in school for that one year. I am taking the mcat soon and expect to get something around 31 based on diags. So what would you guys recommend based on this? 1) Do Masters 2) Do Post-bach/volunteer/work part-time 3) Work full-time (major-based) and volunteer Thanks for the input.
