SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
You need to be assured that your scribing can be a proxy for shadowing. I wouldn't think that would be a problem, but some other adcom member might.I have almost 1000 hours of scribing, which involved going into every patient room and sitting at the same workstation as a physician for 10 hours a day, 3-4 times a week. Wouldn't it be redundant to add shadowing to that?
As for the community service, I would hope that working with the public library's adult literacy program "counts." I really do like working with this program, as it allows me to directly help my fellow first-gen immigrants.
I really don't like the idea of picking up a different activity just to check a box.
Regarding my PS and secondaries, over 15 people from various fields (medicine, finance, tech, design, PoliSci, etc) looked over it last cycle. I doubt that is my problem, either.
Looking at what I see from SDN, my biggest obstacle seems to be the fact that I'm from California.
Yeah, the hours would've been closer to 100-150, but COVID shut down the public library system in my area.
lowkey pretty disappointed about it, because my learner was making some damn good progress
