    Excellent!

    This book is a must-have for any med school applicant. It includes almost everything you need to know, and the week-by-week format and humor help break down the (at times) overwhelming application process. As a nontraditional applicant this year who doesn't have a premed advisor, this book has been invaluable because it provides a ton of tips and tricks I haven't gotten on my own, even with all my time on premed forums like SDN and with hassling my premed colleagues and the med students I work with. The most helpful parts of this book were the cost of even applying, how many schools to apply to, where to apply (M.D., D.O., foreign schools), the MCAT (how to study, when to take), letters of rec (how many you need, from whom, how to get them), personal statement (includes types and examples), secondary essays (long list of typical questions and examples), huge section on interviews (how to present yourself, long list of interview questions), how to keep your name from disappearing post-interview, how to pick which med school is right for you, tips on paying for med school, how to reapply, and how much time you should budget for each of these steps. This is the one book I keep by my laptop for drafting letters and essays, and which I know I'll take with me once interviewing seasons starts.

    Great book for pre-med students!!

    The book does a great job of organizing the tedious process of applying to med school. The dissection of the sample personal statements is very helpful. I strongly recommend this book to any student who plans on applying to medical school.
