    Every summer during college and thorughout my Junior and Senior year for about 1500 total hours of research experience. A couple of posters and a manuscript in process.

    ECs:

    Shadowing: Around 20 hours in a couple of specialties

    Volunteering/outreach:

    Tutored elementary schoolers with an on-campus org (~100 hours), yearly local mission trips with my church, one org I am a part of does a lot of miscellaneous service in the community. Was also involved in Habitat for Humanity for a year.

    Leadership:

    Two leadership positions in one org that I have been involved in for all four years of college: one year as a director and one year as an officer. This org is not a "traditional" premed organization but it gave me a lot to talk about on apps and interviews.

    NO clinical volunteering.

    I like to play music in my spare time!

    Letters of Rec:

    Four total - An above-and-beyond excellent letter from my research PI of two years, two decent letters from professors, and a good letter from an MD/PhD.

    I emphasized research a lot in my application and I hope my major will help me out some if I am on the border. I submitted TMDSAS in early July and AMCAS a bit later. I would've submitted earlier, but I was in Europe for the latter part of May and all of June. Worth.
