What activities should I be participating in in high school to be able to apply for an undergraduate degree used to get into medical school?

I want to be a neurosurgeon and am overwhelmed with the amount of colleges I could apply to for undergrad. I am currently leading two different sections of the robotics team at my school and am thinking about taking summer classes to become an EMT to get hands on-experience in the medical field. #physician #surgeon #undergraduate #medical-student #college-selection #college #college-admissions #academic-advising

Working as an EMT is a great way to learn more. You can also reach out to local hospitals about volunteering or shadowing doctors. Shadowing professionals in the field you're most interested in is a great way to learn and expand your network. Choosing a college should be a comprehensive decision based on more than the accolades the school has received

I would like to start by saying that you are already crushing it and should be very proud! I know how hard it is to sift through all of the information about colleges and it is easy to feel like you are never doing enough. I think it's extremely important to do the things outside of the classroom that bring you the most joy, but also challenge you intellectually. Doing so will allow you to gain insight into what you may want to do professionally. Working as an EMT is a great way to learn more.

Visit schools you may be interested in and try to get to know some students there and sit in on a class. If you can envision yourself there, it's the place for you! YOU GOT THIS! Best of luck!
