I am an Internal Medicine doctor.  Good luck in school.  Reccommendation- go to your school counselor, tell them you are applying to medical school. Let them look at your transcripts and review medical school requirements.  Then plot out your three year school curriculum, exact classses you will need and grades you will need to make.  Also let them tell you when you will need to take mcats.  Pay the money for Kaplan, and start one year prior to the date of the test.  Go to all the prep courses and study daily. Volunteering is vastly overrated.  You need to present yourself as an interesting individual who has interests in people and can master a subject well.  If you have a skill or in depth knowlege in non-science area you will stand above the crowd.  Medical students tend to all look alike to the admissions committee.  So get excellant grades, excellant mcats, present yourself as an intesting human being, who truly enjoys working with humans and that should do it. Also get great reccommendations from your professors. Jeve
