PREMED how to get into Medical School 2/5 ‘Working on your resume’
Yesterday we talked about GPA. Today I’m going to tell you about what other things will get you in.
1. Taking extra classes
2. Outstanding performances in something
So First, taking extra classes isn’t not only about building your resume, it’s working on the future you, as a doctor. Because you’re the type of student who wants to know everything about everything. Broaden your horizon!
Second, if you have any special talents like you’re good at making music, you’re into sports like I am. Things that will make You stand out of the crowd. What makes you proud? Let them know!
Third, shadowing physicians. Let them know about your plans. Ask them what they should do, take their advice! Besides, this is a good moment for you to pull the trigger for your dreams. Because what I haven’t told you yet is that Medical School sounds awesome, and it really is... but there are many things to consider which I’ll tell you next week!
Fourth, volunteering. Do this, only, when you have a feeling for volunteering, and not just for your resume, that’s just wrong. Help people because you love to, and there is nothing wrong with putting it that way on your resume!
