Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The volunteer programs have because part of the Bryant Pre-Health curriculum makes us do a certain number of volunteer hours. Also, to get into medical school, you have to have community service hours, so Bryant’s Pre-Health department will give you options to choose from where you can shadow doctors or volunteer at different organizations that fit what you want to study in medical school or graduate school.
