Hi guys, So right now, my major is premed, but lately after doing some research and shadowing a podiatrist, podiatry has me interested. I know that most pre-reqs are the same between the two and I also know I need to take the MCAT, in addition to knowing the most basic parts of podiatry. However, I have a couple of questions I'm hoping you guys can help me out with. 1) What extracurriculars should I do and what should their focus be? Clinical exposure, volunteering, research, etc? I'm already leading worship at my church, working 20 hrs a week, and volunteering at a hospice. 2) I know there's only 8 podiatry schools in the US, so when it comes time to apply, should I apply to all schools and hope to get in, or depending on my stats, could I pick and choose which ones to apply to? How many schools should I apply to to have the best shot at getting in on my first application cycle? 3)I know podiatrists can prescribe drugs, but what kind of drugs do you prescribe and in what situations do you prescribe them? Thank you all so much for your time!
