I'm looking for ways to improve my application by the time I apply in 2014. After recently graduating with around a 3.76 GPA, I still have 2 years of prerequisites to take. Basically, here are my extracurricular activities thus far. Tutor - 1 year but I plan on continuing this for the next two years at my university Research Fellow - Starting on my second year, but I don't think I'll be able to retain this during the third year due to not being a full-time student. However, I will have at least one publication out of this. Habitat for Humanity volunteer - started this summer, plan on continuing Remote Area Medical volunteer - I'll have accrued well over 300 hours by the time I apply Registered Nurse in an ICU - 3 years by matriculation Meal deliveries for the elderly - well over 200 hours in 3 years by matriculation Shadowing - various specialties for well over 100 hours One concern I have is regarding leadership positions. I was the vice president of the most prestigious honor society on campus for a year as well as the vice president of my major's organization. However, this was during my senior year. Will it hurt me to not have a leadership position for 2 years during my post-baccalaureate years? Any recommendations on how to improve myself over the next two years? My current plans include rocking my remaining prereqs, doing well on the MCAT, and possibly a medical mission trip and study-abroad trip(s). Any suggestions?
