    Hi everyone!

    I had a question concerning volunteer hours. Currently, I have volunteered at a hospital, a college fundraiser, and will be volunteering my time for an event in my hometown. My question is: are dental schools looking more for students who do volunteer work for just one cause or do they prefer the students to be more rounded in their volunteering? Would they rather students volunteer their time doing one thing they're passionate about versus many things that are not as enjoyable?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Quality over quantity. Doing 100 hours at one location is better than doing 10 activities for 10 hours each.

    "Would they rather students volunteer their time doing one thing they're passionate about versus many things that are not as enjoyable?"
    Isn't the answer obvious? (I'm beginning to see why doctoothache has developed a thick layer of sarcasm).
