    Hi,

    I tutored disadvantaged kids but got paid for it via work study 50 percent of the time (volunteered for no pay the other 50). is this employment, volunteering, or both? where do i list it on amcas?

      For those types of things, I just picked one and noted in the description that it was paid but also volunteer or paid but also research, etc. "Portions were paid while others were for credit" etc.

        You don't want to list anything twice on AMCAS. No way.

          thanks for the responses.

          I selectively chose my work study jobs so that they could be fulfilling. In fact, a few of my significant ECs were work study (research, tutoring, "shadowing" - aka office assistant but followed doc around).

          Does it look bad that i got paid? i mean, i needed money n stuff....
