  1. Im still in the first year of my undergrad in health sciences. I was planning on not taking physics or calc courses because I could learn physics over the summers following my first year in preparation for the MCAT. Now im thinking about opening up my options, such as med schools in USA. But im not sure if they need physics and or calc, and also why would they need Calc if its not in the MCAT? In order to apply for med school in America, would I have to take 2 courses of physics and calc as well? And can i complete these in upper years since I haven't done it yet in my first year? what would be my options after 4th year if i hadn't taken calc/physics, and wanted to apply to american med schools at that point - would i be able to take those courses elsewhere? sorry if it sounds all over the place, confused undergrad:) anything helps
  2. I was wondering if shadowing a homeopathic doctor would compare to shadowing a normal family doctor. Is there less quality of experience gained when shadowing a homeopathic doctor vs a normal family doctor? Would it even be worth shadowing a homeopathic doctor when I could be finding a family doctor to be shadowing instead? I'm a first year still trying to figure stuff out - looking for advice
  3. should I include them all in just one section of the extracurriculars? or talk about them separately - even if they are just summer jobs or working at mcdonalds for 6 months?
  4. would it be in my best interest to stay with this employer for the coming years as well? From what I read online "consistency is key". But I wouldn't want to do the same job again - it was more of just an experience I wanted to do for the fun of it and learning stuff I wouldn't have known otherwise. I also plan on doing security / personal training in the coming years, but idk ... would it be best to diversify and try everything out or just stay consistent with one job?
  5. Im still in first-year of my undergrad, but I was wondering if all job experiences should be included in a med school application - not just ones with like clinical experience or relating to the medical field. I worked in labour during my summer before first year (roofing) and was given a lot of responsibility on the job - doing a lot of tasks on my own with a crew member (who mainly just supervised), long shifts (sometimes 14 hours long). There isnt a lot online about including these types of jobs in the application.... and it was only for one summer, should i even include it at all?
