    A little about my application (LizzyM is about 70):
    ---Research: This was a large focus of my application. I started working in a basic science lab during my freshman year and continued throughout college. I ended up with a few publications (I'm a first author on one of them), a few poster presentations, and a senior independent thesis. During my gap year, I did clinical research.

    ---Service: I did a lot of work (>100hrs/yr) with a health-oriented organization. This involved working in a community health center interacting with patients and physicians. I didn't really have any significant amount of true shadowing, so I used this and my clinical research experience to compensate for that. I also held some leadership positions within this organization.

    ---Random: Spent a semester abroad focusing on global health policy, biology tutor, on sports team during college.
