I hope so
There's anothee post of mine, same deal:
Things that make you look like you've considered other careers
**** jobs like garbage collecting
Anything that makes you seem like a well rounded interesting person who has a life outside of building a med school application
The advice I have gotten is that it is better to do a small number of things with great depth and dedication rather than a larger number of things that require less commitment.
500+ hrs shadowing is unbelievable overkill in trying to learn what a doctor's day is like.
But your plans are sound.
Getting back to your original question: stats get you to the door, but ECs get you through the door.
Thank you XD. I was originally just supposed to do like 40 hours, but I just found the physicians to be soo interesting that I shadowed them for the entire summer. During my freshman year, I took 16 hours and then 23 hours for each semester, and the amount of free time I had was absolutely insane. That's why I'm trying to do a lot of things (which I will stick with) to keep myself busy and challenge myself (hence why I'm taking 26 hours and doing those other things). I'll probably be really tired at the end of the day, but I enjoy that feeling (as weird as that may be). I just wasn't sure if I was doing too much or too little. Thanks for your help @Goro and everybody else .
I'm totally going to use that line.. haha
Anyways; OP your ECs look great.
You got a mix of everything, non-clinical, clinical, research. Seems like you'll be pretty competitive if your stats are high too.
