Medical School Admissions: The Insider's Guide. 4th Revised Edition.
Zebala, John A.; And Others
This revised and updated handbook written by recent medical school graduates offers a firsthand account of successful strategies for the medical school admissions process. Six chapters discuss the following topics: (1) premedical preparation (planning undergraduate study and picking the right college); (2) power techniques for higher grades (techniques for grade point success, improving grades by being assertive, and pass/fail grades; (3) the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT sections, preparing for the MCAT, MCAT prep courses, and examination tips); (4) the application process (the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS), extracurricular activities, recommendations, financial aid, timetable of important dates, and breakdown of U.S. medical schools); (5) the interview (the interview process, final preparation before the interview, and sample interview questions); and (6) the essay (proofing and style, creative versus weird, why the applicant wants to become a physician, and warnings). A selection of 50 successful AMCAS essays concludes the book. (KG)
