I would argue that it's a pretty important factor. Almost all of my secondaries have asked what I will be doing during any time in which I am not a full-time student. IMO, it would be a waste of a valuable chance to continue gaining experiences.I'm also having a hard time finding a job after having a summer job. To what extent do adcoms care about what you're doing during the gap year? I was thinking of tutoring/teaching SAT because employment for research/clinical jobs isn't really working out well for me.
Clinical experience and employment are a pretty good start. If you're still looking for more stuff to tack on, lay out all of your current resume and figure out where you are weak from an admissions perspective. If you feel pretty well rounded, you can never go wrong by volunteering some more.I graduated few months ago, and I still haven't found a job for my gap year medical related. I was wondering what I should be doing? Im just volunteering at the hospital and working at BestBuy at the moment. Anything recommendations?
