D is a 4.0 biology major at one of the big UC schools. She will be taking the MCAT in January and applying to med schools in June. She is currently a junior and could graduate at the end of this year. She has looked over med school requirements and believes she will have all the classes needed to apply.
She is thinking of graduating a year early and then using the year 'off' to do volunteer work.
What do med school admissions think of graduating in 3 years? Will it be a detriment or a help?
