AMCAS Work/Activities: More Tips

*In general, medical school admission committees place more weight on activities that show dedication over a period of time and leadership.
*You are allowed a maximum of 15 experiences with 1325 characters to describe each experience.
*Remember hard returns (enter) count as two characters.
*The admissions committees look down on repeats.
*Don’t fill the space just to fill the space. 10 stellar activities are better than 15 less-than-impressive activities.
*The AMCAS automatically lists the activities by date but you can be creative with how you list dates to have some control over activity order.
