Can anyone provide some advice on what I should be aware of applying 1 year after I graduate from college.
Are there certain requirements for rec letters, do I have a different status as an applicant (like a non-traditional)? Anything else you can think of?
Not when your GPA is already pristine, and if you stay in school, you're more likely to burn out. There is a world of opportunities that can only be had when you're not in school, so it's not right for everyone to stay in school through the end of med school. I didn't, and it's one of the best decisions I ever made.2. Stay in school. Upping your GPA even by 0.1 can help.
