Too early to tell. Clearly you don't have enough ECs at this point but you still have time. See what experience you can get over the next 12 months and then decide.Should I take a gap year? I haven't had clinical experience since high school (100 hours shadowing, 100 hours volunteering) but hope to get clinical experience this summer/through the next year before applying. Is 1.5 years enough time to get the required clinical experience to apply to med school? I have a 4.0 and will spend the next year studying for the MCAT.
