    Find a substantial research project; show a sustained committment to it; make sure you'll be able to click with your advisor. Excel in academics and don't neglect having a bit of extracurricular and clinical activity to show your committment to medicine and not just research.

    I agree with WatchingWaiting......not only will finding a project that you can devote yourself to look good on your app, it will more importantly show you what life in a lab is like. Maybe you'll realize that life at the bench isn't exactly for you. Its definately a huge committment, so I think its better to find out earlier than to find out later

    I was thinking about the same thing until the end of my junior year. Then over that summer I saw the light. Reading papers about what effect gene abc has on neurotransmitter xyz isn't my idea of a good time.

    I think the md only route is better bang for the buck.
