How to Be Pre-Med: A Harvard MD's Medical School Preparation Guide for Students and Parentsby Suzanne M. Miller
Pub. Date: 02/11/2013
How to be Pre-Med assists high school, college, and non-traditional students interested in becoming physicians by describing the pre-med route from start to finish using Dr. Miller's Six Buckets model. This guide is equally helpful to those hoping to pursue a medical career and to loved ones, such as parents and significant others, supporting a pre-med.
Dr. Miller created How to be Pre-Med to serve as a prequel to the bestselling The Medical School Admissions Guide: A Harvard MD's Week-by-Week Admissions Handbook because readers frequently provided feedback wishing they had received similar expert guidance sooner in the pre-med process.
How to be Pre-Med covers all information required to excel as a pre-med and prepare for the medical school application process. The Medical School
Admissions Guide then walks the reader through the weekly steps required to create the best application possible and maximize chances of admission.

I am a parent of a potential pre-med. I recommend ‘How to be Pre-Med’ as a must-have for anyone in my position of supporting a pre-med, and for those considering being pre-med or who is already pre-med. Dr. Miller’s six buckets model is the great strength of this book. It’s such an easy framework to follow and puts the terrifying prospect of pre-med academics and extracurriculars into clear light. I especially liked all of her specific examples, which helped me realize how many fascinating options are available to pre-meds. And following five real pre-meds through the AMCAS application was incredibly helpful, particularly the example recommendation lists, personal statement, and AMCAS work/activities. Student Doctor Network forums beware, the best source for pre-med’s is now How to be Pre-Med, I suspect!
