I want to work for the CDC after med school and residency, but I don't know how to show people (particularly med school adcoms) just how serious I am about this. I'm applying to med schools this cycle and want to mention my CDC aspirations, but am afraid that doing so might inadvertently hurt my application because I have no experience with the CDC.

My original proposed topic for a publication I'm writing in was about printing organs and bone marrow but it may be rejected because someone else proposed the same idea. I'm currently brainstorming ideas before tomorrow. Currently I'm thinking of writing of genetically engineered humans. Any other ideas?

Has anyone completed the "Genomics Technology," and "Computer Skills for Scientists" certificate programs at the City College in San Francisco? My plan is to take these classes while finishing up pre-med requirements at the City College. Then I want to find a job in genetics research while I decide between medical school/finishing my biochem education at Berkeley. Is this feasible? Is this a good plan? [more inside]
I was hoping to be back in school this fall to take pre-med classes, but it didn't work out. How do I handle all this unstructured time till I can start school in the spring, both in terms of daily life and my plan for the next few months? [more inside]
Thinking back to medical school classes like Biochemistry and Pharmacology, how much foundational knowledge did you actually use from your undergrad courses in related subjects? Was it important to walk in being able to solve all of the kinds of problems you’d see in general chemistry and physics, or were concepts more important? I am trying to understand how much ‘general’ review is required for success before someone who has been admitted actually starts a medical school program.
I'm going back to school to take pre-med requirements (previously). My current boss has agreed to write a recommendation for me, and has asked me to tell him "what I want him to say." What should I give him? [more inside]
I'm considering applying to medical school as a nontraditional applicant (ie, humanities major, five years out from college, work thus far in entirely unrelated fields). I need some information on post-bacc pre-med programs to help me figure out my game plan. [more inside]
