So here is my story, I'll try to keep it brief. I started college in January 2004 at a small school and did two years. I took a year off and resumed studying at a major university (in Atlanta). I didn't do "terrible" at my first school (2.8 GPA for 58 hours) but I certainly could have done better. After I transfered I changed my major to psychology (from biology) and will finish the requirements for that course in May of 2009. My institutional GPA is 3.49 and I hope to be around 3.6 when I graduate (unless I completely screw up which I don't anticipate doing). This fall I'll be registering with Psi Chi (the psychology Honor Society at my university). I'm also anticipating volunteering every Wednesday with a battered women/children's program run from my school and (if it works out) will be doing an off-site practicum this fall as well. Academics wise I'll be retaking the second semester of biology this fall (I got a D the first time...I know this is going to hurt me). I'll be finishing the non-organic chemistry (D in the first part once, then a C) in the spring then taking organic chem and physics next summer and fall. I've had four semesters of math so far and taking at least two more (not including physics) with a 3.31 GPA (and again on the upward trend). I enrolled in an MCAT class that's doing a pilot run here (very interesting concept being done Creative Commons over several months) and will take the MCAT next summer. I know that since I'm starting now I can do very well on it. Er...I have to. This entire time I've been working full time. Part time at my first university but I've been full time as the billing and asst. office manager of a medical (psychiatric) practice for 2 years now (unless something changes will be 3+ years by the time I apply). This is what makes me non-traditional (though I'm probably skirting that definition, it will take me 5.5 years to get my degree). So I know I'll probably have to look at DO schools. I want to go into pediatrics or emergency medicine after I'm done. So my question is, I know I'm not "wasting my time", but ... what's the best course to continue on... Any suggestions. I really just finally decided to pursue this (after tossing around PhD vs. MD for a while when I realized being in the second half of my junior year that I needed to start considering graduate school).
