    Hi! This is my second semester of working on a research project, however, I am not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. I was wondering how not continuing it next semester might look in the eyes of some schools (I said on my AMCAS that I was planning on doing it through 5/02)? I expect to do some if I go to medical school. I feel it is just the situation I'm doing it in (amid other classes as opposed to during the summer by itself) that is bothering me. On a side note too, when most students do research in medical school, is it with other classes or not? Sorry for rambling and thanks for your input.

    At least here at USC, the medical students can do lab work in the summertime, before classed start first year, then the next summer and sometimes the one after. I believe some schools actually have electives that allow you to do research work sometimes during the school year.

    If you're pursuing a medical degree rather than a PhD, I don't see why you couldn't take a break from research next semester (unless you are a science major and it's a requirement to graduate). You could spend this time in a hospital or clinic, right? I hope this helps.
