Ive noticed in looking at different SDN threads and mdapps that people comment on how they chose to apply to a certain school or group of schools because they "value community service" or "look for applicants who've done a lot of clinical volunteering". in my own research of med schools, it always seems like the mission statements/description of how they choose candidates is basically the same? i have access to the MSAR also, but even that just reiterates a lot if info that's on the websites. My question is how do people know that certain schools "value" certain experiences more than others? i.e. a school that doesn't put as much emphasis on research?
