A common concern for premeds who have already spent some time volunteering and shadowing doctors: Will more of the same type of experience increase your chances of acceptance, or should you seek out a new type of extracurricular activity?
The logic behind that question is sound. You want each of your extracurricular experiences to be rewarding, and you also want them to “count’ toward your medical school application in a way that increases your chances of getting in.
Knowing which type of experiences enhance your chances can help you find the right thing to do, but there’s more to it than that.
Will you benefit from more of the same? I addressed that topic at a recent MCAT Club meeting, and I’ve recorded a snippet for you. Watch it now:
