    Is it possible to change the order in which your activities are listed? Does this matter?

    The reason I ask, is that when I print out my application, my extracurricular activities are listed first (e.g. College basketball, etc) while my clinical experiences (scribing, MA, etc.) are listed towards the end. I would rather highlight my most important experiences first...

      I'm 95% sure you cant edit the experiences section once it's submitted. But as the other poster stated this wont adversely affect you. They'll read the entire thing.

        I remember your thread couple of years ago about whether to do a post-bacc or SMP. I'm glad to see you've made it this far and ready to submit your app. Let me know where you end up and how everything goes.

          The only way to do that is change the dates.

          It looks like things are alphabetically ordered --> 1) Extracurricular activities 2) Healthcare activities 3) Non healthcare activities
          The activities within these sections appear to be chronological.

          Is there anyway to make "Health care activities" go before "Extracurricular activities"? I am ok with the chronological order.

            Yes! Thank you - I ended up going with the post-bacc. I am greatly thankful for the advice I have received on SDN so far. Hopefully it works out this cycle! Will definitely let you know.
