I am currently applying to medical school and I have a few interviews lined up and so I am becoming sorta confident I will get in this cycle (I know there are no guarantees!). Here is my dilemma... I just received a R&D job offer at a big biotech company. This position is pretty time intensive (6 days a week, evenings etc). This paired with my part time scribe job, I will work pretty much every day of the week (60-70 hours a week). I should mention that I love scribing and have made a commitment for 18 months so quitting is not an option. I also want to mention I have been doing full time research/scribing for the past 9 months and working similar hours as above and I can handle it. But, I must admit it is draining only getting 2-3 days off a month. Although this lab position is a great opportunity both professional and financially (I have student loans), I am not sure if it is worth working so hard before I head to medical school. I have heard from so many individuals that you should try to take it easy before starting medical school if you can since once you start, it is going to be crazy for a long time. I also don't want to be burnt out before I even start school. Does anyone have any advice or insight to help me make this difficult decision? Thanks!
