    I'm an undergrad who's applying to med school this year, I
    have a 31 MCAT and a 3.9 GPA and i've done a lot of volunteer
    work, but I"m concerned about my lack of research. Do you think
    this will play a big factor in the admissions? I'm going to
    start a research project this year; do you think I should try to
    mention that to somewhat fill my void in research?
    Thanks

    This should not be a problem for you unless you are applying for
    an ultra-competative research oriented school. Your MCAT and GPA
    ROCK and if you have a good personality and good letters of
    recommendation you should be just fine! I do think you should
    mention the research project... that should only help! And if you
    are doing research when you interview... you shouldn't be hurt
    ANYWHERE. You are awesome!

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    It might hurt a little, but there may be time to get a little experience. I would definitely mention any work you are currently doing. What kind of volunteer work did you do? Was it clinically related? Having A LOT of clinical experience, IMO, is important in doing really well during the admissions cycle.
