  1. Pre-Medical
So i have recently gotten accepted to two job positions: one is a Medical Scribe/ Ophthalmic Lab Tech position (35-40 hours a week) and the other is just a Medical Scribe position (24-32 hours a week).
I am also planning on taking the MCAT late January (Sooo 5.5 months to study for this). I LOVE the 35-40 hour job, but it is not as flexible as the the 24-32 hours a week position.

1. Should I pick the position that I like the most or pick the one with less hours and more flexibility.

2. Any advice on working full time and studying for the MCAT?

I would take the job you enjoyed more dude.

You have plenty of time to prep with a full time job. I'd try to get all general content review done in 2 months, start your real "studying" of flash cards and such made the following two months, and the last 6 weeks just do all the AAMC FLs and section banks.
