Just wondering if there are people like me franticly trying to boost their med school application? Ive attended workshops but I was worried that I havent had enough "hands on experience" through work experience.

Ive signed up to do a 5 week pre medical placement in Tansania in June through www.gapmedics.com which looks amazing but anyone else got any ideas on boosting an application?

Thanks

Neil

Yoda? I dont get it! But I would look at all the placements to back up your tanzania work and you wont go far wrong!

I think they are extremely competitive however but hey what areas of medicine aren't!

Just in case anyone was interested I applied through this charity website:
