How to Get Into Medical School
A Thorough Step-by-step Guide to Formulating Strategies for Success in the Admissions ProcessBook - 2007
Get in! Thirty-nine thousand students applied to medical schools in 2006, but only 17,000 matriculated-that translates to a 44% success rate! The strategies in this book are designed to help you make sure you are among the accepted applicants. This advice is the culmination of our years of experience in admissions consulting, and our insight from our personal experience of the admissions process. We know there isn't a good source of information for how to really put together a great personal statement, or a 'sales pitch' for admissions interviews, so we developed step-by-step guides to help students navigate this intensive year-long journey. You should buy this book if...: You want the inside scoop from people who have been on both sides of the med school application process. This book goes beyond simply giving you information-it provides never before published strategies and techniques that will help you optimize your application and presentation to medical schools. We debunk the most common medical school application myths and give you tips on how to deal with the mental and emotional challenges you will inevitably face on the long, winding journey into medical school. During our many years of teaching MCAT preparation, we began coaching our students on how to get through the personal statement and interview components of the application. With our several years of experience on medical school admissions committees, we are able to offer helpful advice, which can be tailored to your individual profile. Most importantly, we went through this process ourselves and remember how overwhelming it can feel. We hope our book brings you great success, comfort, and even a few laughs as you make your way through the application process. Book jacket.
