    Looks like I am gonna have some free time next year (MS4) and would like to make some cash on the side. Sucks that after 4 years of undergrad and 3 years of med school, we are still not really qualified for anything more than a menial job. I am looking for some ideas...jobs that I could do on weeknights/weekends (and bartending is not my thing).

      The only job that would pay and also help you would be a Kaplan MCAT tutor or something along those lines. Serving coffee or working at GAP is a waste of time and energy.

        Look off the beaten path for weird stuff, or any hobby that rich people like. I was offered a thousand a day to sail with people because of my size.

        You can also make good cash as a personal trainer if you know slightly more than nothing about training. (Which concerns me, but I understand why they would for 15+ bucks an hour)

          I was a retail pharm tech through undergrad. We have HEB in TX, but find a grocery chain with a pharm., they're good with ure sched., good pay, and not too menial. Find a busier store, too.

            A girl at my school delivered pizza during her 4th year, as it was mainly evenings/weekends, and provided her with easy spending money.

              Maybe I should consider doing something similar. You see, I'm quite well endowed...

              You could be a horse-man but you would not make as much money as an average female.

              Unless, of course, you orient your material to male consumers.

              I'll tell you something, dancing for females provides very little income. The only guys that made money dancing were dancing for dudes.

                I'm working as a researcher as part of my program, but other students do this during the summer after MS1 as well. Students can also tutor or TA for anatomy, MCAT prep courses or college courses. Those would probably be the easiest to do.

                  Not true actually, I have an ex-girlfriend that made between $80 and $90k/year as a stripper (long after I dated her). She was extremely hot though, and working at one of the "classier" places. Yeah.

                  I'm new, and not into arguing with strangers on message boards, so please don't try. Trolling doesn't work on me. Peace.

                      Eff teaching the MCAT for Kaplan, teach the DAT!

                      Seriously, I've never had any interest in dentistry, but I taught the MCAT undergrad and will be teaching the DAT in med-school. The DAT is like the MCAT but with less science and therefore a shorter teaching cycle (meaning you have more flexibility with scheduling your semester's teaching). The only thing on the DAT that's not on the MCAT is the perceptional ability questions, but those are basically keyhole problems (through which of the following keyholes would the shape fit if rotated correctly?). Best of all, there are like ZERO teachers who are trained for the DAT at most Kaplan locations so you're guaranteed work whenever you want it!

                          Pfft. :laugh:

                          But in all seriousness... do you have some skills that you could pimp yourself out for? Most of my friends that played an instrument (and there were a lot of them, as most of my friends were either Chinese or Jewish) tutored kids in piano or flute.

                          A lot of them were math tutors as well, and they weren't especially good at it either... you don't really need to be. Over here, I've tried tutoring kids in English, but I just can't teach, so I translate documents and papers.
