School descriptions and accompanying charts cite admission requirements, course requirements, selection criteria, application filing deadlines, tuition and fees, average class size, percentage of men and women students, and much more. Advice on getting through the admission process includes many typical interview questions, sample admission essays, and information on coping with the lengthy admission forms typically required by medical and dental schools. Additional features include a model Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and an extensive sampling of questions from recent Dental College Admission Tests (DAT). Answers and explanations are given for all questions so candidates can analyze personal strengths and weaknesses and focus future study efforts. A brand new extra included with this edition is a CD-ROM for Windows¨. It features a questionnaire for medical school candidates to complete.

This book is the fastest and best way to compare medical schools regardless of what you are looking for. Some information, such as phone numbers, is out of date, and some programs have changed substantially since publication, and 2 more osteopathic schools have opened in that time. Excellent guide, but wait for the 9th edition, due any day now. Also contains very good information on osteopathic schools, which you will not find in the AAMC Med School Profiles.
