I was looking over a secondary application from one the Texas schools and I noticed that the intructions specified that applicants should not list honors, activities, work experience, etc. from more than three years ago. I'm pretty new to this whole process (I've got a good two years before I'll even be ready to apply), and I was wondering if this is common practice. Are other schools' secondaries restrictive in a similar way? Even more importantly perhaps, are (gulp) AMCAS and the statewide Texas application service like this? I know I've got time to do more volunteer work and research and all those other things to help strengthen my application, but as a nontraditional applicant who did quite a bit in the community as an undergrad, it's rather disheartening to think that some medical schools won't even want to hear about it. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks!
