High volunteer hours- what schools “favor” / value volunteer hours or have a set requirements on volunteer hrs?

Recommended Posts

I’m a 2nd year applicant & my biggest strength is my volunteer hours. I have been volunteering since I was 15 years old- and it has led me to a volunteer leadership position as well. 

does anyone know of any schools that may favor volunteer hours? Some schools don’t even mention it! I’m having trouble finding schools who value volunteer hours

What do you mean by "volunteer" hours? Doing what?

The schools I've been associated with seem to value these hours as nice-to-have but don't weight them above grades or actual healthcare experience. Perhaps some other readers have run across other situations.
