    I have a received a seconday application.
    But i'm puzzled with this question, how do you meet our mission? I know it may seem simple. I understand the schools mission; its key mission is to serve the community /
    But is there more than stating that you have been an active member of the community, and served the underserved...

    Any tips?

      It's pretty much saying and then showing, with your ECs as evidence. Like if the school is service oriented, you'd talk about how your service experiences have instilled those values blah blah

        Basically just try to emphasize the fact that you have a service oriented mentality (backed up by ECs) and that an education from this medical school will put you in a better position to be able to contribute to and serve your community.
