Is it best to present an overarching story through your EC's?

Is it best to present an overarching story through your EC's? For example, one EC experience leading to another, to research and publication, and to a masters degree. 

Or would a narrative like this seem limited in scope, and potentially plotted for medical school?

Everyone likes a story and having a flavour to your EC’s is not a bad thing. I’m not sure how you would go about linking all your EC’s together especially for OMSAS. I think it’s better to look at each activity as an individual entity and let the agglomeration of your EC’s paint a picture of who you are. You will have time for story telling in the interview. 

The essential of each description in your ABS is to speak to what you learned through the activity (CANMEDS) and what you have accomplished.
