So, here's the deal: I have about 2 more years of undergrad left, and only recently began to seriously consider medicine. I will have my science reqs done after next semester, and am planning to study (and work/research) this summer and take the MCAT in August. My question is about extracirricular activities...I know they are important, but what kinds of activites/how involved do you have to be? At the moment, all I can really say is that I go to all the basketball games and yell really loud...I kinda doubt adcoms are going to be super impressed with that. My schedule is pretty crazy right now (25 hrs a week in class)...is doing summer research good enough? I thought about joining the pre-med club at school, but how valuable could any activity that takes an hour every other week or so really be (as far as applications)? I am not real anxious to spend all of my free time doing activities that I don't enjoy just so I can list them on the app., but I know I need to be doing something. What kinds of activities are you all doing? Any suggestions/advice appreciated! Thanks.
