AMCAS Changes (2011-2012 Cycle)
AMCAS has made some changes to this year's work/activities section.
In previous years, AMCAS allowed 15 activities with descriptions totaling 1325 characters each.
This year, you still have 15 activity spaces but only 700 characters for description. To complicate matters, AMCAS now wants you to select three "most meaningful" activities out of those listed and allows an additional 1325 characters of description. Choose wisely!
