packofneurons Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 I am a recent graduate from the University of Michigan who has an overall GPA of 3.25. However, my prereq GPA for most schools is very close to a 4.0. I have no paid HCE, but I do have volunteer hours and many shadowing hours. I have about 4,000 hours doing research on cancer signaling and cellular apoptosis. I also taught a 2 week course to MDs looking to pursue research further. I have been in various clubs in undergrad, but I am most concerned about my lack of HCE. I have around 10 schools lined up that prefer HCE, but don't require it. What does that really mean? Can anyone give me any advice? I have been looking desperately for hospital or nursing home jobs, but so far, I've had no luck. I'm considering if I should keep my current job (which is good pay) or just bite the bullet, get my CNA and work for much less. Any people in a similar situation? Thanks :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
