    I am finishing up a post-bacc program in the fall and just taking a few classes (A&P 2, directed research). I just received two job offers and I don’t know which is the better choice. The first is a scribe job that pays $12 an hour and requires 20-30 hours a week. The second is a surgery scheduler job that pays $16+ an hour and is full time. First off, is a surgery scheduler considered paid clinical experience? The scribe job has a lot of intangible benefits like personal statement review and application assistance. Is paid clinical experience necessary? I would not be able to do the directed research class if I took the scheduler job, which would leave me with 0 research on my application. Just not really sure what to do.
