Just wondering if anyone can help me out on this one: I am a sophomore at small liberal arts school, which I transferred to last semester. Way too many of my credits did not transfer along with me, and so I have had to repeat courses. This has taken up many hours I could have spent taking other science courses to better prepare me for the MCAT. So what I am wondering is this, I know most students take the MCAT the end of their sophomore year/beginning of their junior year, but I will definitely not be preapred by that time. Is this extreme detrimental to the application process? And do med schools frown on taking a year off before jumping right in? Because I have an opportunity to shadow a OB-GYN in Honduras for a year, which is the field I think that I would most like to eventually enter. Thanks! ------------------ "Come to Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest."
