Medical School Admissions: More AMCAS Work/Activities Tips

*You are allowed a maximum of 15 experiences with 1325 characters to describe each experience.
*Remember hard returns (enter) count as two characters.
*In general, medical school admission committees place more weight on activities that show dedication over a period of time and leadership.
*The admissions committees look down on repeats.
*Don’t fill the space just to fill the space. Ten 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.

Looking for help deciding which activities to include on your AMCAS? Email or call 415.939.5251 for personal advice from a Harvard/Stanford MD and medical school admissions expert.
