Can you expand on what the recruiter said? I spoke to one grad who said they want you to make a certain minimum and if not you might be able to get a waiver for the verbal section. He wasn't sure what the minimum was and as far as extracurriculars, I haven't heard that. Most people I talk to say observation hours are especially important and the motivation statement.I spoke with a Army health care recruiter and he said the admittance committee weighs heavy on extracurriculars and GRE verbal. .
