University of Washington Volunteer/Community Service

  1. I am applying for University of Washington's fall 2013 BSN program. I'm worried I don't have enough volunteer or community service. I have over 4,000 hours (over two years worth) of healthcare experience. I'm not worried academically at all. I'm just worried that my essay and my resume aren't going to show that I have a 3 year old child and juggle time better than most people because I don't have a bajillion community service projects.

    Anyone in the same boat or have any thoughts?

    I think if you have good grades and 4000 hours you'll be fine!

    I would recommend going through your peers to get your personal statement peer reviewed to remove some grammatical errors and some suggestions. Go over it with them if your comfortable, you might get a new perspective towards your paper that would make your application stand out from the pact. good luck!
