Recommended Extracurricular Activities
Consider planning out your extra-curricular activities by semester, just like your pre-requisite courses. Starting early helps avoid the stress associated with cramming everything into the last few semesters prior to the application.
Minimum Recommended Extra-curricular Activities
- Dental Experience: 50-100 hours shadowing or other dental related experience
- Volunteer Service: 45 hours during each of the pre-dental years including the year of application
- Leadership: 3 different leadership positions during the pre-dental years
- Research: 45 hours during the pre-dental years. Research is not required, but is highly recommended and should be hypothesis-based in any subject
