  1. Masters won’t help much in terms of grades. I’d say you’re probably looking at a second undergrad. Also, I suggest you reflect on your current commitments. Will you be able to handle the work load in med school while simultaneously caring for your father? Has there been a recent change that seems to indicate his condition will no longer impact your academic performance?
  2. I’ve seen people do exactly what you’re describing. They’re no longer pursuing medicine... so I guess it worked as planned in a way? Just not the outcome they wanted.
  3. @offmychestplease I’m not at all ignorant about FM. Not everyone plans to run their practice in AB, not everyone wants to do walk ins, work 50-60 hrs per week, etc. Not all FM docs are making 500K per year, there’s nothing wrong with pointing that out? OP can easily do the math themselves. When I PERSONALLY did the math, the breakeven was far later than what I anticipated. That’s all.
  4. so you want to trade your current 6 figures M-F 7.5 hrs, no overnight call + benefits/pension for family medicine...? I mean sure you could, but whyyyy would you do this to yourself. Financially speaking, it doesn't make much sense at all. If it's for other reasons, then yeah go ahead...?
  5. Worth it to apply, some students get admitted every year with a gpa similar to yours. If it will be enough will depend on your Casper and ECs.
  6. If it helps, last year I answered with probably 2-3 sentences. I simply said I would keep working in the field I was in, and work towards getting licensed by the overseeing body (alternate professional career). Nothing fancy, just the simple boring truth, and it didn't stop me from getting an interview.
  7. Yes absolutely! You can explain it in the description or impact section, depending on how what angle suits you best. It would even be fine to combine various positions from different organizations under a “themed” experience. Good luck!
  8. I believe @PleasePleasePlease is referring to students coming from outside of the Atlantic bubble - not the social bubbles
