This website is very informative and all your posts have been good. I have some questions... 1) First of all I want to know what you guys think of my current situation. I have been a CNA in a nursing home for 1 year and have been doing research for a year and a half. I have been to Jamaica 3 times for Volunteer trips through world relief and volunteer at the hospital (in Childrens)... and various other EC's. Do you guys have any other suggestions of what I could get involved in? Another question, If i have the opportunity to take a first year medical school class (Biochem at UW Madison) would you reccomend that I take that or wait? Do you know if these credits transfer easily to other Medical schools? As far as letter of recs go, what do you think is the limit to send to a school. The More the better or no. (I have about 6 right now, should I narrow it down?) Thank You for your advice everyone, I appreciate it.
