    Then you don't go to school because you are touring as a hero and rich individual :)


    I did research as an undergrad and really enjoyed it. don't get stuck doing stupid stuff like just cleaning glassware though.

    You've got to get involved in what really interests you. If it is art or music or hang gliding that gets you going, well then do it. As long as you are truly involved. Leadership and community service are good too. Schools are looking for well-rounded students who are also real people with real life experiences.

    By the way, if you are interested in opportunities to volunteer outside of your school here is a helpful website for volunteermatch.com: <http://www.volunteermatch.org/post/>

    You should do some activities that show your compassion: volunteer for the kids, the elderly or the disable. After all, people have been stressing compassion within the profession forever.
