Does employment matter a lot?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I’m going to be applying for med school during the 2020-2021 cycle. I heard that employment was a category that needs to be filled out. I haven’t had may jobs (only 3 short term employment), I was wondering if this will going to diminish my chances of getting in. My gpa and mcat scores are great. My volunteering record is also great. The only thing I’m lacking in is employment.

I don't think it will be detrimental to your application at all! Put them there and summarize your roles and the things you learned etc. As long as CanMED roles are well demonstrated across your entire ABS, you'll be ok. ;)

Doesnt hurt to include it, I think I had 3 items there and they werent very long term.

Good luck to you!
