The Premedical Student's Guidebook
Sanford J. Brown, M.D. - All books by this author
Getting into medical school is difficult, even for students with excellent college undergraduate records. Today, only about one-third of all students who apply to medical college are accepted—a statistic that emphasizes the vital importance of well-focused preparation on the part of medical school candidates. Getting into Medical School, now in its new eleventh edition, has gained a well-earned reputation as a time-proven source of sound advice and information on how medical school candidates can improve their chances for admission. Written by a medical doctor who is also an experienced student advisor, and updated to reflect today’s medical school environment, this book emphasizes the importance of attaining a good score on the standardized MCAT (Medical College Admission Test). It also guides applicants through the arduous process of medical school application and advises them on how to make a good impression when invited for that all-important personal interview. The book concludes with a detailed medical school directory that lists up-to-date tuitions and fees, academic requirements, and application and enrollment information for more than 140 accredited medical and osteopathic colleges across the United States. Also included is a list of Web sites that provide helpful information to medical school candidates.
