I'll most likely have 400-500 hours by time of application and then +2000 one year f

  5. Hi! I just wanted to get some thoughts and comments on my application. I know my patient care experience is pretty low but I've worked so hard as an undergraduate to be involved and maintain consistent grades, but I'm willing to take this gap year to work full time. Shadowing: 80+ hours Volunteering: 100+ hours (VA hospital ER transporter, mentor for a special needs student at a children's hospital, and I taught English at an Italian elementary school for a semester) Involvement: sorority, honors humanities study abroad intersession, study abroad semester, volunteer club, pre-de
