NO.

I recommend shadowing a doctor you know from your community.
All of this "manufactured" resume building is a croc.

She should focus on making good grades and being herself. I knew people that took "music appreciation" just so they could hobnob with some admissions official.

Be yourself. Anything else is too difficult.

I am an M.D. and think the admissions process needs to get rid of some of the silliness.

Is the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine worth sending my daughter to attend? It ain't cheap.

no, skip it. unless she is applying to an early entrance program straight from high school, then i might consider it, but chances are thats a no.

Skip the pre-professional club and tell her to join clubs that she is actually interested in. Med schools are all about well-rounded applicants these days and many pre-meds lack significant extracurriculars outside of pre-med/science.


I Kige this. A friend's two kids are both in med school now. One played college soccer and the other was a nationally recognized classical saxophone player. Helped them out bigtime in the admissions process.
