Dear SDN

I am getting ready to apply this coming application cycle, and have one concern with my application. My entire fourth year I was a part time student. I did this because a lab that I needed to take was only offered in spring so I decided to spread my remaining credits over the entire course year. While I was initially encouraged to not graduate early, recently my pre-med advisor said this could be an issue.

During this part time year I have been active in community activities every week such as
volunteering in radiology department
volunteering at local soup kitchen and veterans home

What do you think of my situation? Can you see this being an issue

AS long as u can prove that you didn't stay home n watch tv while you were part time. Just make sure u stay active in your community.
