    I am going to be having 100 hours at one nonclinical place that I volunteer at, but I have to stop soon because I will most likely be moving within the next month. Thanks!
    Since you have labeled this "General", could you be more specific what path you are pursuing? Where are you in the process of preparing an application (are you a freshman, sophomore, how many years away before you feel you can apply?)?

    I am a senior but won't be applying to med school for two years. My question is, does 100 hours at one organization look good? I don't think it looks good to have like 20 hours at Organization A, 20 hours at Organization B, etc.
    Prolonged commitment looks better than little spurts. Quality >>>>>quantity as well. Love what you do and do what you love.
