Better to have work/activities in every category or only some?

    Hello,

    On the AMCAS, is it better to have at least 1 extracurricular/activity for each of the categories or just specialize in a few?

    Thanks!!!

    You don't need an activity for each category. You're overthinking it. Just list whatever you have done.

    Totally agree. Those options are given to you to better classify your experiences. No where does it say that you need an experience corresponding to each and every option.
