I have heard about adcoms not liking pre-meds who just box-check for ECs (Shadowing, volunteering, work, leadership, etc). I don't understand though because I noticed in the What are my Chances section that if an applicant is missing one of these it is suggested that they do it. My Pre-Med Advisors would also advise to fill in any gaps for types of experiences missing. So is an applicant who does all these types of experiences considered a box-checker? I feel like applicants would be at a disadvantage if they were missing something like physician shadowing or clinical volunteering. What are your thoughts?
