Hi Everyone! Looking for some advice on my school list below. (Re-posting
  1. Clinical: ~500 hours as volunteer, hospital setting, direct contact with patients
  2. Research: ~1500 hours wet lab research, multiple years, one mid-author publication, one poster presentation
  3. Shadowing: ~40 hours.
  4. Non-clinical volunteering: ~160 hours, some to underserved population
Here is what I'm thinking for a school list:

Thank you as well. I agree that while "shadowing" may be a little lower than par, it does include some primary care. I hope it's closer to the majority of your hours (like at least 20 hours) on top of which you can try to supplement once you get the chance. 500 hours of clinical volunteering could hopefully address any concerns. I agree with @Goro that doing more community service volunteering will help you, especially where you are not teaching or tutoring (too many premeds do this and it won't help you stand out).
