Many medical schools look for students that want to become a doctor for the right reasons. You will want to do allot of volunteer work anything from volunteering in a hospital setting to volunteering for the Feeding the Starving Children. This shows your compassion to help others and that you are willing to go out and help because it is something you are passionate about. Also having a broad knowledge in psychology, laboratory testing, Excellent Communication. Recommendation letters from a professor. Work hard to be on the Deans List, Honor Society. etc. Be positive and fully aware of the vigorous course work . Know how you will manage schooling and home life. Understand that your classes are full time which makes it impossible to work also . With this being said have a life plan in order this shows that you are prepared and are fully aware of the amount of work is needed to succeed. Helpful if you have a great support team at home , this in turn will help with stress when your support from home understand that you need study time and you might not be able to be involved in family activities. All of these things will help . Oh and of course the entrance exam do your best obviously, and be ready to answer why you are interested in that college? Do your research about the college what makes them the best option for you? This shows interest and the school will appreciate your knowledge in the school you are applying for apposed to the reason being that it was your only option.
