“What experiences do I need to be a competitive premed applicant?”
Or, “What experiences “look good” to medical schools?”
I get asked this question all of the time, and today, I’m going to answer an even more specific example of this question that I was recently asked in my FB private group The Best You PAL Academy Health Loving SQUEE Peeps. (This FB group is a happy benefit of Academy membership. To join, click here.)
I was wondering if it is worth rushing a premed frat. They brag that they have a 97% acceptance rate to medical school, but how would a premed frat look on my application?
To clarify, I asked the student, “Can I ask you, what factor(s) are drawing you to the frat? Anything beyond the happy success acceptance stat?” and she replied:
I guess having the supportive family that will help you in your classes and life in general because they are all really close to each other. They also hold professional development events, such as doctor dinners, medical student brunches, resume workshops, and other events to help develop you as a stronger applicant to medical school.

As always and ever, wishing you smiling happiness and exciting success!
