I am currently a sophomore and I spent my freshmen year at a community college which did not have any extracurriculars. After transferring to a 4-year university the pandemic started and I made the decision to stay home (No clubs other than Pre-dental society). Volunteering opportunities are very hard to come by during this time and I only have a year left before applying to Dental School. However, I worked a lot throughout college (20 hrs during the semester and 35 hrs during breaks) will that make up for my lack of extracurriculars? Should I cut my work hour for volunteering? If I keep my GPA really high and do well on the DAT (21 AA) will I still have a good chance of acceptance? Will Dental school be more lenient because of the Pandemic? Thank you in advance for your insight!
