Overview

Many books about the medical school admissions process claim to demystify the process, but unlike this one, few are written by someone who has both an "inside" and an "outside" understanding of what it takes to gain admission to medical school. Dr. Jessica Freedman has been on faculty at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine where she also served on medical school and residency admissions committees and held key leadership positions in undergraduate and graduate medical education. Further, her work privately advising clients has given her a nuanced understanding of applicants' misconceptions, mistakes, experiences, and insecurities. The MedEdits Guide to Medical School Admissions not only reviews basic topics such as medical school prerequisites but also addresses such issues as when to take/retake the MCAT and how to decide what topics should be included in the application written material, including experience entries and the personal statement. The book includes full length samples of applications (both experience entries, new "most meaningful" descriptions, and personal statements) and suggests how applicants should approach their own application. Dr. Freedman also provides examples of secondary essays and letters of intent.

    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.
