Hey all, Just need some quick application advice. I've been an avid piano player since a very young age, and while I stopped taking lessons after high school, I've still played about 10-15 hours/week since coming to college. Clearly its still been a huge part of my life and something I've invested deeply in - but also, because I haven't continued formally with piano, something that I've relinquished as "just for me" and not for a med school application! But then I saw the "artistic endeavors" option on the AAMC application, under work/extracurriculars/etc. Is this the kind of thing they're looking for? If so, how deep of an explanation do I write about it? They say we have 1325 characters to write and I could fill it up in a minute talking about my passion for the piano....but again, I've taken no classes, stopped teaching my students, and have played in no competitions in the past three years. I know its a small point, but it is a big part of me. Any piece of advice - or scathing criticism - would be much appreciated!
