  1. Pre-Health (Field Undecided)

Started drafting some potential activity section descriptions for my application next year just to get ideas down. The main question I had developing this activity section is:

At what point do you consider components of an activity different activities that merit separate entries?

For example, I was an undergraduate lab assistant for a year, but through some work was able to convince my PI to onboard me as an upcoming MS student for this year. Do I put two separate entries for this?

Another example: I'm a tutor at my school. However, for two subsequent quarters, I signed up for a program offered in that tutoring program where I was able to mentor new-coming tutors. Again, does this tutor vs. mentor count as one activity since they're from the same program, or are they different activities because they are essentially different tasks?

Thank you!
