I am a 3rd year junior, and have completed all the necessary chemistry, math, and physics needed for the mcat. The problem is that I have only taken the two introduction courses for biology, so I am a little behind. I am planning on taking the mcat april 2006. I am considering taking the kaplan course the second semester that year. It is now february and I am clueless as to what to do this summer. I have considered studying abroad, but am afraid that this while have a negative effect on my application and mcat scores. I already have 120 hours of OR volunteer experience from last summer. I am wondering what the best thing would be for me to do this summer between junior and senior year.

GO ABROAD. DO IT. Preferably somewhere where healthcare is a luxury and you can see what a lack of it leads to. There is nothing more important, in my opinion, than getting out there to see how the rest of the world lives!

I definately agree. going abroad is an eye opening experience that the adcoms love. make sure wherever u go to try to see something about their healthcare system. goodluck!

i definitely agree that you should go abroad, but not necessarily to see another country's healthcare system, although this can be interesting. do it because it will be such a wonderful experience to see a different part of the world!
