    Shadow neurologists/residents and attend NeuroRounds at RRUMC - 1.5 years
    Clinical research associate/volunteer at RRUMC ER - 1.5 years
    EMT ER Internship - 12 hours (but very meaningful to me esp. after going through my first patient death under my care, CPR performed)

    Applied as disadvantaged both medically and financially. Anyway, I am considering to reapply with much stronger MCAT and stronger GPA finish (3.7 ==> 3.5 in the last 4 quarters)...there is always hope. Who knows?
