I am young college investor looking for some help. I just recently put my maximum investment amount into my Roth and have some long positions in the account. I have about 9 months worth of money set aside as an emergency reserve for myself. Thus, that brings me to where I need some help from the fool community. I currently have $3,000 sitting in my savings account and I really do not want to put it into anything long since I might need the money in the next 3-5 years for med school. Does anyone have any good ideas for how I should invest this money for short term? Some of my possible thoughts have been a money market fund, CD, bond, or even just keep it in my savings account, although I would like to earn a little more on it than just letting it sit in the savings account.

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
