...and my local hospital requires 6 freakin months of volunteering minimum.
I agree with this. You need to get the experience. If hospitals don't want you to commit for 6 months but then leave after 3, they should complain to AdComs about putting so much emphasis on ECs (specifically clinical experience). It's kind of a ****ty thing to do, but what other options do you have?I don't recommend this but... you can always sign up saying you will do 6 months, but don't. Hey every situation is different, I'm just putting it out there.
