    I was debating on whether or not to list some things separately or together. For instance I'm a CPR, ACLS, and EMS instructor each of which is a separate entity, but could also be grouped together. I opted to group them together. This might cut down on the number of listed post-secondaries, but from reading the instructions it seems that the Adcom's would rather have it that way.

    A friend of mine in medical school was told the following by the dean of her M.D. program.....

    "The thicker the application, the thicker the applicant"

    Try to keep the superfluous experiences out or too a minimum, send only the number of recs they will take, be succinct, you get the picture.
