This question is actually touched on in the FAQ #8. I worked up an answer based on some private communications from several admissions committee members as well as public posts by adcom members.Firstly, this thread has been of tremendous help to me, so i just wanted to say thank you for all the advice and support.
Secondly, I apologize if my following question was addressed, it was difficult to find it using the search feature.
I was originally planning on having three "Most Meaningful entries", but I was apprehensive regarding my clinical one, which I talked about in detail in my PS (albeit I discussed particular examples). I was wondering if perhaps since it was already included in my PS, I should not list it as most meaningful, and only have 2 most meaningful entries. Would this work against me? If this is the best route, would it be a good idea to mention in the description that the experience was significant, however already discussed in PS? Thanks.
Personally, I would advise you to list the clinical experience as most meaningful and emphasize different aspects that weren't part of your PS. Don't ramble to fill space though (no need to use all the characters)
