I think work is looked at positively in the application. I worked with my dad for 4+ years to help the home financial situation and while I managed to do decent EC, I still mentioned that I worked with my dad. If it doesn't relate to medicine, at least it develops your personal and communication skills! It is not all about medicine. Adcom like to see well rounded individuals who can carry a conversation.
But what EC have you done?
I have heard from the dean at one of the Chicagoland medical schools say repeatedly that food service jobs are particularly desirable. Plus, as a store supervisor I'm assuming you were overseeing other people + more responsibility, yes?
Great you said this. I know you meant to talk to the OP but sorry if I interrupted. I was a chef in my dad's food vending machine and I would watch how other workers work and tell them what's right and wrong. Hope that's a good thing then.
Umm i have 50+ hrs in hospital volunteering
president of a donation organization at my university
shadowed a family doc for a month
play soccer at a club
100 hrs in tutoring math and chem
that seems so little to me .. and i have only 2 semesters left til i apply
yes thats exactly what i did. watch people do the right thing
I'd probably word it differently, but yeah, something to that effect. Blahblahblah working with people blahblahblah providing service to customers blahblahblah.
It's incredibly easy and common to get all worked up about what you don't have vs. what you do have. Try to focus on what you can do while maintaining your scores/grades and you should be fine.
I think that's pretty decent EC right there. Don't even worry; with the fact that you worked 40+ and still were able to do these EC, it shows your motivation and I think you are fine.
Haha, how would you word it differently ? I know I suck at English but it's my second language.
PM me with the job description and we'll talk
visit here lol
Haha now since I answered your question, tell me where is your job so I can pass by and get free food.
I've never had a formal job besides tutoring, however I'm one of of those people who struggles to juggle a bunch of things at once. Basically managing research, classes, volunteering, tutoring, and soon mcat prep is extremely hard for me.
I've heard the same thing
