hey guys, I'm a junior right now, and I plan on applying to med schools next summer. i'm a cali resident, and i'd really like to stay in-state for med school. my dream schools (ucsf, ucla, ucsd, and stanford) all have summer research programs, and i feel that working in these programs might get me good connections and kind of get my foot into the door into these med schools. this really is just speculation on my part though. alternatively, i can go back to the lab that i've been working in for 1+ years, and my understanding is that continuity is something that is seen as a good thing by md/phd committees. what do you guys think would be the better choice? my PI at my lab was quite pleased with my work this past summer, and offered to write me a strong LOR whereever i applied, so i dont think i necessarily have anything "more" to prove to my PI to get a good LOR; i'd just be working there because I enjoy the research.
