Have any of you been to the medical mission trips to Mexico w/ flying sams? Was it a good experience and did you enjoy it? Did it come up in interviews or help with the admissions process?
Thanks

At my school, they help collect clothes and fundraise. Like once a month, they go to a clinic in Mexico and help staff and administer the place. However, I wonder if it's really any better looking on your app than just doing that stuff here.

you get extra consideration b/c it is volunteer work in a "developing country". heard this straight from the horses mouth (adcomX2).
