    Hello, just looking for advice on what I should do. I am considering quitting a job that I included in my primary app as one of my significant experiences. Do you think this would look like a red flag to med schools? This is something I've been doing for at least 2 years so it's not like I am quitting something I had just started. Also, I have another job going on so it won't look like I am not doing anything while applying to med schools. My concern is that because I indicated this experience as one of my most significant, med schools will think it's odd I am quitting. If I do quit, should I update all of the schools when I submit my secondaries? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    b/c of unforeseen circumstances, I won't be able to commit as many hours as they want me to. It's unfortunate as I really like this job and the people, but staying would be very difficult.

    No, not at all. The information in your primary should be based on past experiences that had some impact on your decision to become a physician. What happens TODAY will not change any past experience.
