Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide differs from the many directed at premed students because it is written from a medical student perspective. The authors are frank, pragmatic, sometimes humorous, and occasionally irreverent. This mixture makes for a book many libraries will find worth its modest price. The book does not focus on individual medical schools, but instead addresses issues: the preparation of an effective application, improving scores on the MCAT, and writing a compelling personal essay. The last constitutes fully half of the book, since the authors believe these essays can sway an admissions committee, even for those with borderline grades and MCAT scores. Although this book is not a substitute for such standard sources as the Medical School Admission Require ments, United States and Canada (Assn. of American Medical Colleges, annual), it does offer valuable views. Recommended.-- Richard H. Quay, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio

Great book for the ins, outs and how-tos of preping, timing, applying, interviewing to medical schools. I have serveral books on getting into medical school and this is the best. Buy it, apply, get accepted, then donate the book to your premed office. Pass the karma along.

Since I'm applying now, I've read most of the books on getting into med school, and I thought this was the best. It's concise and not condescending, and the 50 sample essays were really helpful and worth the price of the book alone
