    I hate the 600 word count. im working on it now. should I list my activities for the manual dexterity or write it like a short paragraph? How did everyone else approach it?

    Not even sure what you are talking about. Where on AADSAS is there a word count of 600? It's all character count I thought. Are you talking about your personal statement?

    you should briefly explain what you do specifically with your hand that makes you a better applicant. Correct me if I am wrong, but I dont think you are suppose to just list them.

    Good luck!

    For the supplemental academic part that enhances you for dental school....would any of you put down that you earned and EKG certification under that section?
