Preparing for Medical School, what should I focus on the most?
I understand that grades, GPA, and test scores are extremely important when applying for medical school, or anything medical for that matter. I also know that they like to look at 'unique' characteristics that make the applicant stand out, like taking a different major than the generic ones. And I also know that they like to see a 'well-rounded' applicant- one who works and helps out with community service while studying. My question is: Which one is more important working or doing community service?
Seeing as most of my time will be devoted to studying (and trying to keep a healthy lifestyle), I need to determine which is the most important to focus on. I'm just concerned that my application won't be impressive enough and will look, well, sad because of 'lack of effort'. #college #medicine #medical #healthcare #application
