I decided to take 2 gap years to figure everything out. I wanted to do optometry, but now I’m change to pre-med or pre-podiatry. I’m not exactly for sure which one I’m wanting to pursue. I‘m starting a job as a CNA soon. I’m in a SMP right now. I haven’t got to shadow due to this pandemic. I‘m planning on taking the MCAT this summer. I was wondering what are some other things I can do.

Scribing is an awesome gig if you can get it. Works for shadowing and clinical experience for your ECs. You can see if you enjoy what physicians do AND it is really good once you get into medical school. A ton of my classmates were scribes and they have some of the nicest SOAP notes you get.
