How many people do you think get into PLME with virtually no experience in medicine?
I wanted to shadow a physician this summer, but no hospitals near me allow shadowing, especially not for high school students. I have no hospital volunteer hours because I've never been interested in medicine until this year: a close and sick relative had to stay with my family and I've been taking care of him and that's what sparked my decision to be a doctor.
I did do research this summer at a university, but that's all.
Moreover, if I send in only my ACT score (34), would I be at a disadvantage because I didn't send in any SAT 2 subject tests? PLME doesn't require it, and my scores are low 700s so I'm not eager to send, but I'm still worried.
