King of a meh question. Is there any "back up" plan if getting into a medical school does not work out for someone? As in, do the mcat/pcat scores mean anything outside of the medical school, what about the extracurriculars?

I am just worried since it seems a lot has to be done before even sending out the applications, stuff outside of GPA, that I am slightly worried I will find myself in a situation where I have all these "field experiences" and then end up not getting to utilize them because I don't make that cut for medical school or something.

Shouldn't you have picked as your ECs activities that you can/will do and enjoy and not regret regardless of whether you get in?

I mean if it is all a drag and bore, maybe you should reflect onto your motivation for going to medical school or maybe you should change your ECs.
