  1. Interesting, thanks for the help. I didn't know that some schools view leaving a degree in the middle negatively but I guess that makes perfect sense. Do you know if this is a big factor to consider? I'm just starting out my degree so it would be about another 2 year commitment if I went through with it.
  2. Thanks for the help. Just because of the time/money sink aspect, I'll probably end up picking one or the other (MBA -> Business or going for med). Would there be any sort of benefit to doing a second undergrad or is it completely not worth the time? Also, what about volunteering/research/shadowing experience? My impression is that they play an integral role in admissions and it might be difficult to get those without going back for a second undergrad. On the other hand, I could work for a health organization for a year or two while I'm studying for the MCAT. Apologies for the question bombardment haha.
  3. Hi all, Thank you for taking the time to read this. I have a bit of a unique situation and would love some advice from those that are more experienced in medical school admissions! I am currently doing a top MBA at a university in Canada straight from my undergrad and, I realized, the business world probably isn't for me. I am thinking of pursuing medicine. This is not a one-off decision and there are a lot of reasons for this--I'm down to discuss them if needed, just didn't want to make this post too long. The way I see it, I have three options: 1) Go back to undergrad and get a 3/4 year degree in a sciences program. My previous degree was in business. 2) Take a couple years off, study for the MCAT, and try to get some experience volunteering and working the medical field 3) Continue with MBA and not go to Med school Any recommendations? My cGPA from undergrad is a 3.95, B2 & L2 are approximately the same as well. Again, thanks for reading and cheerio! MT
