For example, working with children who are fighting cancer.
If not a troll -- I am trying to imagine how a medical school admissions board would view your taking away time from your young children to spend socializing with 19 year-olds. How do you think they would react?

Instead, I suggest that you spend the time with your kids and spend your money on a good MCAT review course, if you are really serious about medical school.

My sister and her husband are both doctors and they both served on the exec boards of their Big 10/SEC Greek organizations in college. I've never once heard them say anything about their membership playing any role whatsoever in the medical school admissions process. Join a science-related honor society, volunteer at a hospital, study for the MCAT, etc.

The only connection my sister has ever mentioned is that residency matching is EXACTLY like bid matching...you list your ranked choices, the hospitals submit their ranked lists, there's a computerized ranking and matching system, and you are informed where you're placed. I guess the only difference is that no one drops because they "didn't like their hospital/house" so they'll try again next year for better results. By that age, people have learned that doesn't work.

The nurses and doctors at New York General were all really nice, but their scrubs were ugly and the protocol they used was LAME!

THIS. Is exactly right. When my Son in law asked me if I understood the Match process, I said yes, it is just like sorority recruitment. He then asked me to explain it to his non Greek mother. Not certain that she ever got it, she wanted her son and my daughter to go to a particular place in Florida which they had little interest in for their specialties.

They prevailed, couples matched to their first choice in another state. Match Day is like Bid Day on steroids!

Not to mention, they have a religious affiliation that differs from my own, so obviously this would be a bad fit.

But ... but I'm a double legacy to Memorial Sloan-Kettering! How could I not have matched???

Oh, wait.

Dammit, Jim, I'm a software engineer, not a doctor.

You guys, I'm so upset! All this time I thought for sure I'd match with the Mayo Clinic. I LOVED them every time I was there, the doctors and nurses seemed to like me, and one of them even told me they were looking forward to having me as a resident. Yet today I found out they dropped me! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? There's got to be a mistake, right?

And one of my friends who's an attending there told me they wanted me, so there MUST have been a computer glitch!

Maybe I should have gotten rec letters, but I heard they're only really needed at southern hospitals.

Now I have to decide if I'd rather be a GP, or accept the spot at Podunk Community Hospital....
