I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. My MCAT score is 519 (130, 128 cars, 131, 130) AQ ~21.8 NAQ ~14.4 I'm currently working at a hospital (~10months) and at lab assistant(~4months). -volunteering at a senior centre (since 2015, 2hrs/week, ~300hrs) -volunteering at a hospital (since 2018, 4hrs/week,~250hrs) -volunteering in the environment in a leadership type role (4hrs/month, recent only 25ish hrs, but 80 hrs from previous work with the organization in highschool) -volunteering with big sisters as a study buddy (recent, 1hr/week) I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
