  1. I am hoping to get some tips from the more financially savvy residents or staff, for those of us that’ll be graduating soon. As a graduating R2, I have been getting few offers for locuming, partnering and salaried positions. The main two that I am considering is a semi-permanent locuming position (6-8mos) vs a salaried hospital position. My main question is how to compare an office based gig (as new grad I’ll probably see 4-5 pts/hr so I’d guess around $130-140/hr income with 25% overhead) vs a hospital salary based position that probably comes to something around $115/hr but comes with health benefits and pension (I am still waiting to get the full package for details on remuneration). I know that there are opportunities for added income in the clinic with the occasional more lucrative chronic disease/annual exam/etc billing codes as well as some private billings, and of course there is the opportunity for incorporation in private practice. I am wondering about the cost of not being able to incorporate as a hospital employee, and if it’d be generally balanced out by the benefits/pension plan that one would get? Thanks guys!
  2. Hi everyone! Last summer, I wrote the MCAT and scored 500, so I need to rewrite it for the schools I want to apply to. The thing is, last summer I was working full-time in a lab and really struggled to balance working and studying for the MCAT (cause I had signed up for one of those prep courses). This year, I was offered the same position in the lab and it would be full time. I really want to work for the experience and it strengthens my CV; however, I'm not really sure how to balance the working and studying? Any advice? This summer is my last chance to write the MCAT if I want to be able to apply during my 4th yr undergrad. Is it too risky to work and study knowing how bad I did on the first one. Is it worth giving up the research position to just study for the MCAT all 4 months? Any advice? Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, I have been seeing a lot of mixed answers to what cGPA a second undergrad would be considered necessary/highly recommended. So according to your opinion, what is the cGPA that work experience/grad school can't really make up for? This is assuming that the applicant would only want to go to medicine, nothing else as a career choice, but is flexible enough to like research/work.
  4. Hey guys! I am just curious, when do most people start getting research experience? I am going into my second year, and I haven't started volunteering in a lab yet, but I'm really interested in doing that, eventually. I already have a bunch of extracurricular activities lined up, so I'm not sure how beneficial it would be for me to get involved during the school year, but I'm worried that I won't be able to get a good lab or hospital research position in the upcoming summer if I don't have prior experience? Thanks so much for your help! * Sorry - I posted this same question under general discussions, before I found this category.
  5. I was just hoping to get some advice about this. I am planning on writing my MCAT next summer (first attempt) and I would like to dedicate my summer (3-4 months) on studying for it and practicing as much as I can. However, it dawns on me that I may not be able to maintain a summer job this way, nor dedicate myself to a volunteer position as a regular volunteer. I have heard about people who have balanced studying and other things before, but I would like to devote as much time as I can in one summer term, rather than having to repeat it because of divided responsibilities. Would you recommend balancing or devoting? Am I overthinking this? I am not looking to fill up my resume just for the sake of it; it is just that I have worked with a great PI for two years now and I would love to continue to work for him in the future - just think this gap would jumble things up.
  6. Around how much time per week did you commit to extracurricular activities/part-time job/volunteering while still staying on top of your classes and maintaining your GPA?
