I am a high school guidance counselor and I am endorsing "The High School Doctor." Before reading this book, I was completely unaware of accelerated medical programs. The authors did a fantastic job in providing a resource for all high school students interested in a medical path.
Five years in the making, The High School Doctor is the premier resource written for high school students interested in the medical field. Every year, approximately 20,000 college students apply to medical school. Only a fraction of those students are accepted each year, making medical school a highly competitive option. The application process can be quite stressful and expensive. In addition, every student must take an examination called the MCAT or Medical College Admissions Test before applying. However, all of these steps can be bypassed.
Did you know that you can have conditional acceptance into medical school right after high school? Nearly 50 universities across the nation accept high school students conditionally into medical school right from high school. This route can save thousands of dollars, bundles of stress, and loads of time. Not all of these programs are very well advertised nor are they well known. Knowledge of these programs and the steps to take to get into them will make you a competitive applicant.
The High School Doctor is the premier resource and tool kit for getting into an accelerated/combined (BA/MD) medical program. There are unique never before seen program descriptions of each BA/MD program. The authors describe the paths to a successful application and interview.

I was very excited to learn about this book. I hoped it provide valuable insight into attending an accelerated medical program (AMP)that I am aplying to. Instead, This book has no relevent information. To be fair this book has a list of schools that offer accelerated programs (however, I also found on about half a dozen websites). The book is gimmicky and badly written. There is a fifty page long vocab list for the lame reason that "having a good vocabulary will make you more attractive to a college." The descriptions of the collges mention absolutely nothing about their accelerated medical programs. Instead it includes unimpressive irrelevent information about the campuses (greek life, tuition cost, intramural sports, transportation ect.) These things are nice to know but it is not why I bought this book. Another four chapters of this book contain information about SAT test taking skills, writing good college admission essays, teacher recomendations, and a chapter called "The future of medicine." Why does this book seem to discuss everything about college except AMP's. I have a theory that the fact was the authors did not do enough research so insteaded just added a lot of information as filler. None of the authors have any experience in education or education study. For Gods sake one of them is a personal trainer! This is a crummy college information book that just so happens to have a title that alludes to a subject that has nothing to do with what the main topic of the book is really about. I felt cheated buying this book.

Actually, Janice, if you read the book, you would find that "The High School Doctor" was started well before "From High School to Med School". I own both of them. I definitely liked "The High School Doctor" better. I was just accepted into the 7 year accelerated medical program at Northwestern University and let me tell you that this book is GOOD!!! It not only has much better program profiles, but it has postcards that you can pull out and mail out to every program!!! That saved me so much time! There is no comparison, "The High School Doctor" stands as the Definitive and best guide to Accelerated Medical Programs.

This book is fantastic!! I have read all of the available books on accelerated medical programs, and The High School Doctor is the best available book. It is an easy and practical guide that any high school student can follow. This year is my first year in an accelerated medical program and I owe tremendous credit to the authors of The High School Doctor!!!
The program profiles blow away any book ever written on accelerated medical programs. The profiles are really detailed with ratings and rankings provided within the book. Also, there are postcards that can be mailed to each program, which I also thought was pretty creative. I highly recommend the book!!!!

I was just accepted into the accelerated medical program at Rice University. "The High School Doctor" by Koneru, Arora, and Wang helped change my life. I never knew that I would have the credentials to get accepted into medical school right after high school!!! The program descriptions in the book are amazing. One will be spending the next 6-8 years at a program, so it is essential to know everything about that program. The book provided me with specific information about social life, academic life, reputation as well as admission requirments. No other book on accelerated medical programs comes even close to the detail of these profiles. At the end of the book, the authors provided postcards to tear out and mail to all 50 accelerated medical programs!!! This book changed my life. You must buy your copy today and change your life as well.
