    earning money on the island

    Advertisements



    I was wondering are there any opportunities available for students to make some money on the island especially during pre-med?

    you are not able to legally work in Antigua. If you study hard and earn A's you can be become a TA in the medical school where they pay you 10/hour and you can usually get 2 hours per week per subject you want to teach. I am not sure if they have TA's for pre-med.

    As someone speaking from experience, working while trying to go to is school is a TERRIBLE idea. I'm stuck in the caribbean for med school because of working while going to school. Suck it up, be poor for a while, and focus on school so you can get the grades you need to move on to the next phase in your life. Now, as far as raising money BEFORE you go, eBay is a great place to sell anything you have laying around your house, you can join up with College Painters during the summer (painting houses), you can join a catering company for a few months (actually pays quite well, particularly if you can get a bartending gig), dog walking, baby sitting, proof reading other students' papers and college essays, there is a lot out there that will allow you to get quick cash ahead of time so you don't have to worry about working in school. Again, sorry if I sound preachy, but I watched my college education go down the tubes while trying to work full time and go to school, and let me tell you, no one will care about your "but I worked while in school" sob story when it comes time to apply to med school. They just want to see good numbers. Best of luck to you.
