Hello,
During gr 9 to gr 11 I helped take care of my mother who was sick. I already have 15 work/activities put into place so this would most likely replace my hobbies or perhaps on the clubs I did in first year. I talk about my mom getting sick in my PS but don't take about me taking care of her in the PS. I saw that med schools look at this experience as clincial, so I assume that would be asset to my application since I don't have as much clinical hours as I want.
What are your thoughts?

What happened in high school stays in high school.

And as a good daughter, you're supposed to take care of your parents! So no, this isn't clinical.

Though including this in Work/Activities isn't in your best interests, it's still fine to discuss your care of your mom in your PS as part of your "Path to Medicine."
