  1. Can I use a prof who didn't teach me, but whose lab I volunteered in as an academic reference or would this count as a personal reference? I didn't really help too much with the research aspect, but I was expected to do presentations at the lab meetings.
  2. Hi guys, I have to take a placement course this year and have no ideas for any. I wanted to do one at the hospital with a surgeon or something, but I don’t know how I would go about this. Has anyone done any placements (ex. at companies, with profs etc.)? How did you find them and what did you do during them? Any help is appreciated.
  3. My biggest issue with high school stuff is that I have lost contact with the people that ran the ECs I was part of (i.e. I have no idea how to contact them because they left), so I don't have anyone to put as a verifier. Would it be okay to put a friend/family member that knows about the activities or did them with me as a verifier, or is this not accepted?
  4. Hi everyone, I am in my 4th year of undergrad and I'm hoping to become a doctor, but my extracurriculars are really lacking. I have a 3.9 GPA and haven't taken the MCAT yet. My current extracurriculars include volunteering with stroke patients and with alzheimer's patients. I'm hoping to start volunteering at the hospital this year as well. In the past I have volunteered with the canadian cancer society and worked in an interdisciplinary STEM project that aimed to build technology that would help people with disabilities, but both of these were short-term. The only research experience I have is conducting literature searches for an occupational therapist and helping with his research. Also, I was part of a multicultural club and an executive for a club that helped refugees. I know this is way below average, considering what other pre-meds have done, so I want to know what my chances would be at getting an interview. If anyone has advice that could help me with finding more ECs to become involved in, I'd really appreciate that too. Thanks in advance!
