hello23 said:ditto to all above answer...but another very impt question: what was your major and your undergrad.... 3.4 in psychobiology is very different than 3.4 in, like neuroscience.

Hey I was a psychobio major at UCLA, and yeah it was pretty easy but I messed around alot.AStudent said:Only UM would offer a major in psychobiology

As for my ECs i m not sure what is considered good, but I have:
- a year of neurosurg research at UCSF (no publication)
- head TA for upper div physio course
- working with a professor in PH (possible publication)

brats800 said:Use your experiences to set you apart. explain how great the head TA experience was. i did something like that and got to say how much better i learned the material when i had to teach it well enough for others to pass the class, rather than just learn it well enough for myself to pass the class...
and the volunteering is good. when i interviewed, my only real experiences medically were 2 summers of near-full time research, a 1-week job shadow, and about 7 months of volunteering @ 4 hours/week. so if you did the volunteering for 6ish months at 4+ hours/week, i'd think you're looking golden.
