Just to let all of you know, I have received a plethora of PM's congratulating me and agreeing with my post. So, take a better look at the ass-kissing pre-med next to you... they are secretly plotting to destroy you!
Why? What, besides the bull$hit that you spewed/plan to spew to admissions committees, did you take from non-research EC's. They are a hurdle you jump through. A painless one, sure , but still nothing more than a hurdle. I spent mine stuffing envelopes and filing stuff. Personally, without the experience of stuffing envelopes, I don't think I could have accurately described to my interviewer why I wanted to be a doctor. How could I?E.A.
