How late can I submit an additional LOR?
I'm in the process of getting letters ready, and so far I've had both my science prof LORs submitted on Interfolio (was most worried about getting these but it was surprisingly easy once I asked). My research PI has also agreed to write one. I was considering asking my work supervisor as well, since I've accumulated a lot of hours at my work study job and I'm on very good terms with him. However, something I'm concerned about is a letter from a non-science professor; he teaches non-science... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

WAMC: 515 MCAT, 3.417 cGPA, 3.1 sGPA, 3.67 SMP GPA (1 year), Texas Resident ORM
What are my odds for MD/DO, especially TMDSAS? I am taking an SMP now and was hoping for a higher score, now looking at 3.67 overall for a 35hr SMP. What are the implications of my SMP gpa?

Career change options
I have been working as a psychotherapist for the past 15 years but would like to do something different. I also teach occasionally as an adjunct however do not see this as a main career due to the low pay and precarious working conditions. What are other work options with a doctorate in psychology in the US? I am leaning towards assessment, however I have never focused on assessment so I would probability need further training. Where would be a good starting point? I looked at Pearson's... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Would 10m liquid assets and being under 50 be enough for you to walk away or would you miss it too much?
Curious as to achieving that number at an age ( sub 50) where you can still maintain nearly all of your physicality how many would continue to work for the pure joy in the OR vs finding a new endeavour teaching, mission work, travel etc. I think its widely assumed that no one is going to flat out retire and plop their feet on the couch and let their brains rot from streaming, facebook, and tik tok.

Opinion: Heartland Dental School Will Be A SUPERIOR School
Here's a controversial opinion. What if Heartland's dental school will become the best and most sought after dental school to attend? Let's explore this. Heartland has a vested interest in teaching students how to become dentists with hopes that these dentists will work for Heartland. While most dental school's would prefer to pacify students with prophys and other nonsense, and prevent you from doing too many complex crown/bridge, implants, surgery, heartland wants these students to be able...

Albert Einstein Vs Downstate- Both Schools in Trouble
Hi all, I’m a NY resident applicant that is fortunate to have acceptances to both Albert Einstein and SUNY Downstate. However if you read the news, both schools are facing headwinds that might impact my education/degree. Downstate- Not even 2 weeks ago, it was announced they’re closing their inpatient wing of their main teaching hospital. Seems like not a lot of current staff/faculty know their future. I’m concerned this will impact my chance to go to in-house residency 4 years from now... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

OU-HCOM (OOS) vs DMU (IS)
Hi! I currently have acceptances to both of these schools and am trying to figure out which one would be the better choice. For reference, I am thinking of going into internal medicine for residency. Since I am OOS for OU-HCOM, the tuition would be similar between the two. OU-HCOM Athens Pros: Pass/fail grading Public Matches well into internal medicine Exceptional accreditation Opportunity to rotate at teaching hospitals Cons: Mandatory attendance...
