There are plenty of threads about Extracurricular activities and how important they are to applications. So this will be our next topic in our Pre-Allo FAQ series. The main discussion should be focused on: 1) How important are they? 2) Which EC's should I do? 3) How do I get involved in an EC (research, volunteering, clinical experience etc)? Maybe users could talk about how they personally got involved in whatever EC they did. Later on I plan on covering specific extracurricular activities in more depth individually so for now talk about them in the broader collective sense. Although feel free to elaborate and contribute as you'd like too. Thanks again to the community for participating Also let me remind everyone that all of the old threads can be found in the Pre-Allo Information Thread.
