    I am looking of some volunteer work to do this summer and was wondering if a suicide and crisis hotline is a good option. I have already worked as a volunteer in a hospital. I am applying this summer (taking the August MCAT).

    Does anyone have any ideas about this? I am wondering if this type of work would be better for someone going into psychology? Thanks for any input!

  3. I know people who've worked on crisis hotlines and gotten a lot out of it. Of course, it all depends on each individual, but if you like talking to/helping others, it sounds like a good idea. Personally, I wish I had taken the time to do some crisis work since all my pre-med volunteer work was more health-related.

    Good luck with the august MCAT, it's great you have the summer to prepare. Most people hate that, but I think it's a great chance to cool off from spring academics and concentrate on one thing.

    see you
