Well, I mean chances are, if your grades are amazing, you'll get in even if you didn't do a lot of volunteer work for example. If your grades are high enough, they call you for an interview and that's where they see the kind of person you really are. They're looking for well-rounded people. Is it not kinda the same everywhere else?
And average students in high school can become doctors of course. They probably just worked their asses off to get into med school!
