I'm just curious if anyone else has little to no research experience and how you've fared in the process thus far. It almost seemed to me that research was a requirement since every premed I knew or heard about had research experience. Personally I knew early on that I wanted to be a full-time clinician and though doing research as an undergrad might have proved a learning an experience I decided to dedicate the freed-up time volunteering in hospitals and working. For this reason I applied mostly to clinically-oriented schools and thus far have three interviews. I applied to a few research-oriented insititutions just for the hell of it and I'll soon find out what they think about my minimal research experience.
