Hi, I've been lurking around these boards for around 3 years now, ever since I've taken (back) interest into going into medicine. My dilemma is that my extracurricular activities show a big hole meaning there is something missing. I've done research in Zoology for 3 years, 2 publications and 1 poster One year of research in a language and literature field, 1 publication, maybe 2 years of volunteering in a hospital and during 2 summers in the past I've shadowed doctors and surgeries. My problem i suppose is that none of that first show leadership abilities and two none of them show that I've gotten involved in the community or "socialize" So my question is how concerned I should be (based on past threads it seems I really should be concerned) And then if so, should I attempt to do something about it now, even though it is late (I will be graduating in may and I will apply in July)? I similarly know friends of mine who have cushioned their application by putting in stuff they did for one month or two weekends, I personally did not think that would go over well but I do not know as much as the combined knowledge of 2 or more pre-meds. Any advice, comments will be well taken and greatly appreciated.
