So I have a few questions about a few different things. I'm a freshman going for a BS in microbiology and immunology. Around what time during my undergrad education should I start preparing for my MCAT? When is the best time to take the MCAT? I've read about extracurriculars. What exactly constitutes as extracurriculars and what kind should I be looking into? I know I need to do some shadowing but I've also heard about logging clinical hours? I'm an LVN can my work experience be used for my clinical hours? I have many more questions but these are all I can think of at this moment so any and all advice is appreciated!
