Admission committees at health professions schools will not only evaluate your ability to handle the academic rigors of graduate education, but will also take into consideration what you have accomplished outside of the classroom. Activities that have meaning for you and that demonstrate your leadership qualities, initiative, perseverance, and compassion will help schools learn about your personal qualities.

Additionally, admission committees are looking for applicants with specific competencies. While the AAMC core competencies were written for medical school applicants, they are very much applicable for individuals pursuing ANY health profession!
