Guys so what is the concensus on the summer before medical school. do most people get a mindless job and hang out...or do people actually continue to strive and do research and all that jazz? I am considering leaving my research job in june and relaxing and visiting friends. So what does everyone think...what do you med students suggest? have a great day and good luck to everyone...if it matters i heard applications are substantially down this year...could be a rumor??? i also heard that a large number of the top execs. at amcas got the boot??? anyone heard anything.
