    Finally A GREAT book about getting into medical school

    I have read every book on the market about medical school admissions. This is the first book I have read that gives real, instructive and easy to follow advice. Every other book is too general, offers generic advice that I already knew and let me wishing for more info. This book is also the only one I could find that had sample personal statements that didn't make me feel like my accomplishments were subpar. And, the application entries really helped me understand how to approach that part of the application. I am so thankful that I read this book before I wrote my application.
