I intend on applying to my school that I would just LOVE to go to... deadline is June 1st. I have all the pre-req's done and the lowest grade that I have is a B. That doesn't necessarily set me above the rest of the applicants. The overall average GPA for students admitted into the program is a 3.42 +/- .13. Right now I am at 3.8 and I hope to get all A's (of course) this semester and next. So... question is: should I go find a volunteer position at the hospital or the nursing home to get that extra edge? I'm sure someone out there will have experience similar to my situation! Please?! I have called the pre-nursing advisor and am waiting to hear back from him. Any opinions welcome!
-I should probably say that of course volunteering will help my application but since I spend majority of my time studying and taking care of my family and my house, will it be so much worth it to take time away from my already busy life?
