I'm in need of some advice. I'm done with my prereqs and just took the MCAT a second time (first one received a 27Q), and am not completely confident on how this last one went. My grades are pretty good, and I'm set with volunteering, but lack some shadowing experience.
I've been working full time through this whole process and I feel run down, burned out, and unhappy. I'm in the middle of filling out the AMCAS application and it's hitting me how unhappy I am. Not so much with this process, but with my job. I get paid extremely well, but I made the mistake of being honest about my intentions. It went fine at first, my first set of managers understood me and knew that I was still a good worker, and, in general, I like what I do. However, those manager's have been replaced by new managers and I'm just going through hell with them. They take every opportunity to put me down and derail me. Their treatment of me in addition to my first MCAT score has really contributed to my self confidence being at an all time low.
My fiance and I are getting married in October though, and he's sort of encouraging me to quit my job. I'm a little nervous about it, considering I have a mortgage, a wedding (parents are helping with this), and am used to living pretty comfortably, and with this economy....I'm just not certain of what to do...I've also never just NOT worked... But I'm just so unhappy with my managers...
