    Hey everyone.
    I'm finishing up my prereqs this coming May and will be applying for med schools this coming summer to start school in Fall 08. I'll be studying for the Aug MCAT. So, my summer is tied up. But, come fall of this year and next year I was thinking of working to save up some money as I've pretty much depleted my savings going to school to finish prereqs (I'm a non traditional student with a degree). On the other hand, I'm afraid that the ADCOM will not look favorably towards not being in school for a year. What is your suggestion. Does anyone know who's had this issue and how he/she handled it or what the ADCOM had to say? I'm a physical therapist. So, I really don't need any more clinical experiences.......
    Thanks.
    James

    Get in some last minute clinical experiences if you don't have, and otherwise I would work/enjoy yourself. Every doctor that I've talked to has told me to ENJOY my last year of freedom.
