What non-medically related experience has been most influential in your life?

Would you classify the death of a parent as medically related?

I wouldn't. I wrote about a work experience. So I think they mean a non-medical related experience like not shadowing, not volunteering etc.

----woops edit. i didn't mean i wouldn't as in iwouldn't write about it. i meant i wuoldn't as in i wouldn't consider it medically related?

does anyone else have input on this?

I think non-medical means no shadowing experiences or volunteer experiences.

The Stonybrook app has been the biggest PITA out of all my secondaries because they ask the most essay questions. That and Columbia are the only ones I have left and I just keep staring at them.

Agreed! I had to bow out of that school because I just couldn't answer the first question. What a shame (for me).
