Hello. I'm only a sophomore in college, but I want to get a good idea of the questions the AMCAS asks on the apps, such as volunteer work ?'s, awards, etc. Is there a website that has that info?
Thanks!

You only need to enter <15 activities you have been involved with, give dates and contact info, and less than 1300ish words about it. Then there's a personal statement - why do you want to be a doctor. That's it. The only things I would worry about as a sophomore as far as the AMCAS goes is keeping good records about your activities.

Just create an account and start filling things in to see how the application works. It won't keep most of the information when a new application year starts. I think you have to fill in the identifying info in secion #1 before you can procede to the Activities section.
