A valuable companion on the intricate journey of getting into medical schools

I am lucky to have gotten into medical school at the time I did. It wasn't easy when I applied in 2011-2012, but now it is unnecessarily competitive; having been an admissions committee ambassador for my medical school (in manhattan/NYC) I've seen how many stellar applicants get rejected despite being more than qualified. What goes behind the decision of selecting one qualified applicant over another? It is intrinsically a subjective process. Getting into top schools will now require more than just stellar GPAs and MCAT scores; it requires years of diligent planning before hitting the "submit" button, and this book shows you how.

The BEST resource for med school admissions

This book was soooo helpful! It's incredibly thorough and goes through which schools to apply to, how to write your personal statement, interviewing, getting the right Letters of Rec, writing secondaries...and of course most importantly, which school you should actually go to! I believe the authors also consult too, never did that but seems useful for the extra personal touch! Well worth the money!
