Hi, I'm new and would like some advice from this forum! I have recently graduated from college and plan on taking a year off before applying to dental school. I think this could really be a good opportunity to strengthen my application but I am unsure about what I ought to be doing... I know that the adcoms will be asking how I spent the year off after graduation, and i'm unsure what they might be looking at. I am contemplating taking a job working as a receptionist in a dental office? But this is mostly desk work and I wonder if this could actually help my application.. I have also been considering a research job, but I feel like I do not have many skills/techniques that they want. And I wonder if a job in a dental environment might be more beneficial.. Any suggestions and thoughts would be much appreciated!
