    Does anyone use "repeated" feature on AMCAS?

    I am just going over final touches before submitting and I don't feel like adding "repeated" for future volunteering/shadowing/work, etc. Of course I am going to continue to do at least half of these activities. However, I don't understand the point of putting future accomplishments. They...

    Wrong hours on amcas advice

    So I did full time summer work and year research at the same lab. I put the whole research for this lab under one category and the summer under another I didn’t realize the hours weren’t supposed to overlap. What do I do, this makes the hours exaggerated for one of those activities? Should I...

    AMCAS work/activities contact information

    I'm stressing out about my work activities section. There is a club I was involved in for a year a few years ago. The club ended because our sponsor left. I want to put this club in my work activities section, but the only contact information I can find is a hyperlink to the sponsors LinkedIn...

    AMCAS Help - Choice of Work/Activities

    Hi, I'm filling the work/activities section of the AMCAS and I need to make a decision about my third "most meaningful" experience. I was hoping to get your opinion on that, since it seems like it is not always a good idea to make these choices solely based on what one feels. I'm going to...

    Is my volunteering experience acceptable?

    How to classify unpaid work in an echolab in the work/activities section?

    I worked in multiple echolabs over the past few years where I started out shadowing the techs, and they'd be teaching me how to perform an echo. After some time, I started doing them on patients as well. Whenever I would do it, I was always supervised but much of my time in the lab consisted of...

    For experiences, is it hours completed or hours expected to complete?

    Title says it all, I have 6 on going experiences, 3 of which started in March. Do I list the # of weeks as the number I expect to complete over the next year or so, or simply the 10-12 weeks I have already completed?

    How does MSTP change Work/Activities recommendations?

    I am applying MSTP. Obviosuly, I want to construct a strong research narrative. But, given that I have 13000 characters in essays to elaborate on research, I feel inclined not to specify research activities for elaboration in the Work/Activities section. It seems that elaborating on research in...

    Work Activities section — enter each job, or a whole career?

    For years I've had a career in web development. I worked at some agencies, did some contract work, and currently freelance. I don't want to use up 5 or 6 slots on the work activities section on the details of this career that I'm hoping to leave to pursue medicine, but it also doesn't seem to...
