  1. Do you think it will harm my application if I only complete 7 of the 8 possible ABS entries for Western’s application? I really can’t think of a second activity that speaks strongly to the Social Accountability & Responsibility cluster, and I don’t want to exaggerate an experience just for the sake of having 8 entries. I also feel like my remaining time might be better allocated to improving my other essays/entries. Thoughts?

  2. Any idea what they are looking for with regards to question a) in the About You section of the application?

    a. Please tell us about a unique (non-academic/non-research) personal life experience(s) and/or challenges that are relevant to your application to medical school. Please also outline how you overcame those challenges, if applicable. If none, please state "none".

    I can think of personal challenges that I could address (mental illness, death of a friend, etc.) but I'm not exactly sure what they're looking for and I think I would struggle to relate those experiences to my application... 

    Would it look bad if we just put "none"? Does anyone have any input on this section?
