It completely depends on your interests! I have been planning to go to med school. But, one of my friends suggested that I go for a cardiac device specialist career.. he was a PT before he decided to attend a program called prepmd, and now enjoys what he's doing. He said some of his classmates at this program first planned to go to med school, but joined the program instead. It sounds v.interesting but I haven't decided if I wud do it yet. Thought wud just throw it out there as a possible option for your situation.
PS: .. am including the website as some folks asked me for it.

MCAT practice questions

Two identical evacuated flasks are filled with different gases to the same pressure and temperature. The first is filled with hydrogen and the second with propane. Compared with the first flask, the flask filled with propane weighs:

A. 11 times more.
B. 22 times more.
C. the same.
D. 44 times more.

Correct answer: B

Rearranging the ideal gas equation, we get:
n = PV/RT.
Since P, V, and T are the same for both gas samples, n is also the same. However, propane has a molecular weight of 44, while H2 has a molecular weight of 2. Therefore, a molecule of propane weighs 22 times more than a molecule of hydrogen. Consequently, the sample of propane weighs 22 times more than the sample of hydrogen.

Interview Advice

Tue Aug 01, 2017 7:46 am

by alicecrisp (Posted Tue Aug 01, 2017 7:46 am)
My main advice is to have a good sleep before an important interview. It seems to me that no matter how well a person prepares for an interview, he or she can not fully answer the questions if feels tired.
Of course, your clothes are important. Here it's not about the business suit, but about the clothes in which you feel comfortable and confident.

Before the interview I usually make a list of topics which they can ask me about. If you are a marketer, for example, you will be asked from your achievements - how you represented the product in your last company, how you expanded the sales market, how helped the company to develop.

But also don't forget about the preparation of questions for the employer. Representatives of the company like to ask how you see yourself in five years. Be the first who ask what prospects can wait for you if you will be a diligent worker. It is important to know whether the company is developing.
And it is important to ask at the end of the interview how much time the employer needs to think about your candidacy.

I'm joining the medical school force in Europe (6 year program). I want to take the USMLE Steps and noticed Americans take them after year 2 and during year 4. Should I take mine then after year 3 and during year 6?

I know I'm early-ish but planning is important.
