Just curious what everyone is doing/has done besides school in order to improve their applications. Mainly just trying to get some ideas out there. This doesn't seem to be talked about a lot here but it's certainly an important part of your application, particulary for people who have lower GPAs (like me) and are trying to offset that. As for me: Volunteer at a local hospital as a surgery liason Co-founder of the pre-professional health assocation on campus Member student health activisit committee Member of search committee for a new director of health services at school Shadowing a pharmacist at a local retail store Pharmacy tech. certified (awaiting licensing. The state board needs to hurry up!) That's it for now. Before summer I really didn't have anything under my belt. Also planning on working as a pharm. tech. once I get licensed, and if I can't, at least getting volunteer work in a pharmacy before I apply to schools in June. What all have you done? I'm still looking for other things I can do, so ideas are appreciated.
