Suzanne Miller's book on the med school admissions process is exceptional. Dr. Miller masterfully articulates the important points of the med school applications process. She hones her expression into a concise and authoritative language that provides you with details that you will not read anywhere else.

In over twenty years of advising applicants seeking educational opportunities, I have never read a more complete guide filled with so much practical information.

    A must buy! This week-by-week guide sets itself apart from other books in this category, many of which seem mass produced using the same generic 'admissions' model. I have found the med school admissions process to be incredibly intense - juggling many of the required tasks - but this book has broken it down in to weekly steps that are easy to follow. This second edition has kept pace with what seems to me to be ever-changing requirements and deadlines of the admissions process. Dr. Miller's experience shines through; the examples provided - of personal statements, AMCAS work/activities, secondary essays, and letters of intent - are all from real-life applicants. This has been incredibly helpful. It even has sections on DO schools, foreign schools, military and public health service options. I recommend this book to anyone even considering applying to medical school!
