    Look...they all want them...lots of them. But the important thing is quality not quantity. Know what you gained from each experience and what that has taught you. Be able to reflect upon them and discuss how they make you a better student/dentist.

    THIS is what they really care about. What the extracurriculars have taught you says a lot more than what you have actually done.

    As for whether one school prizes it above another...i doubt it. It's going to form part of your application but it's a minor part. Most of it is grades, UKCAT and interview. Simples.
