I agree with you that setting up for success is to be able to be happy, healthy, and continue working towards the path to become a physician.
In the episode #219, I heard a recommendation to become a full-time student and work part-time and that taking one class per semester is “a red flag”.
I am currently a full-time teacher and I need the income. I am taking my pre-reqs one class per semester while I continue to work full time. Even during quarantine I am kept very busy with teaching. I don’t want red flags in my application to med school but I am not sure how I can take more than one class per semester.
