Hey I am a sophomore undergraduate student. First off, congratulations to all the newly accepted dental students and to the students that are currently in dental school already of course. I was wondering what extracurricular activities everyone participated in or are currently participating in at their undergraduate schools to enhance their applications. Thanks.
