Overview

The newly updated edition of this complete career guidance manual and school directory presents profiles of all accredited medical, dental, and osteopathic schools in the United States and Canada. 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. Their response will generate personalized recommendations listing the schools where they stand the best chance of acceptance. In print for many years with regular updatings, this book is one of the most highly regarded in its field.
