Another quick question...

I work at a hospital full time (36+ hrs), and attend school full time (3.8+GPA). I'm also an assistant coach of a local high school soccer team. Should I pick up a few hours of volunteer work in a clinic? I hate to be at the hospital more, since spend so much time there...but I realize that it's important and that's all that matters. My GPA rocks at one of the best schools in the state, and I have good recommendations from the hospital. Is this good enough?

It is not about how much time you have. It is about the stories you can make after all this work is dont. Admission committees want to see if you are committed, and WHY you want to be a doctor. They do not want to see if you can do 5000000 hours of community service before med school. This is comming from a man from UABCOM that talked to the pre-meds at my school last week. So when a man from the admissions board of a top 20 med school says that, I believe him.
