Format: Paperback
Suzanne Miller's book on the med school admissions process is exceptional. Dr. Miller masterfully articulates the important points of the med school applications process. She hones her expression into a concise and authoritative language that provides you with details that you will not read anywhere else.

Although the book is steeped in good advice, I particularly value the section on the secondary applications. Dr. Miller provides over 40 essay prompts categorized into 10 major themes that will allow you to complete much of your secondary applications before you even begin to apply. I cannot tell you how valuable this information is... secondary applications are very time consuming, but if you follow Dr. Miller's advice, they will be as easy as cutting and pasting your pre-written essays.

This is a book for the general applicant, as well as for the elite applicant. As a graduate of an Ivy League school, my home school dedicates enormous resources into pre-medical advising. However, Dr. Miller's book surpasses the advice that I received from my school's career services by leaps and bounds; so much so that I purchased a copy of her book and mailed it to my home school's career services.

This book will propel your application into a new level of excellence, not to mention save you enormous time in the process.

Buy this book!"

Format: Paperback
My son will be applying to medical school in the coming years. As a practicing physician who applied to medical school years ago, I remember the competitiveness of the process and also recognize how much it has changed. I was looking for an expert's opinion on how to best help my son prepare for medical school. I found exactly what I was looking for in Dr. Miller's Medical School Admissions Guide. She provides week-by-week advice that clearly explains exactly what a pre-med needs to do in the medical school admissions process. The appendix examples of real successful AMCAS work-activities, personal statements, secondary essays, and letters of intent are priceless. My son and I both so enjoyed Dr. Miller's book that we hired her as a consultant and have been incredibly impressed with her in-depth knowledge of medical school admissions. I cannot recommend The Medical School Admissions Guide or Dr. Miller highly enough.

Format: Paperback
A must buy! This week-by-week guide sets itself apart from other books in this category, many of which seem mass produced using the same generic 'admissions' model. I have found the med school admissions process to be incredibly complex but this book has broken it down in to weekly steps that are easy to follow. This second edition has kept pace with the ever-changing requirements and deadlines of the admissions process. Dr. Miller's experience shines through; the examples provided - of personal statements, AMCAS work/activities, secondary essays, and letters of intent - are all from real-life applicants. This has been incredibly helpful. It even has sections on DO schools, foreign schools, military and public health service options. I recommend this book to anyone even considering applying to medical school!

Format: Paperback
If you are considering medical school, read Dr. Miller's book. This week-by-week guide breaks down the complex and frequently daunting admissions process into easy to follow steps. It offers practical and often humorous advice on every aspect of your journey, from writing a standout personal statement to preparing for a stellar interview. The 2nd edition also provides examples of AMCAS work activities to meet the new requirements and has a new section on ways to pay for medical school including military and public health options. In over twenty years of advising applicants seeking educational opportunities, I have never read a more complete guide filled with so much practical information.

This book is absolutely incredible. Every student pursuing medical school should buy this book. It is helpful in every way, even if you already know a lot about the Admissions Process. It gives you steps in detail in how to go about doing anything, for example: asking for a letter of recommendation, studying for the MCAT, writing the personal essay for Medical School etc. The book even has a schedule for every week of every month, everything is laid out for you, you save an incredible amount of time!

For someone starting out knowing close to nothing about the medical school admissions process, this book was a great find. It creates a clear timeline to follow, which is sometimes hard to find in this lengthy admissions process. After reading this book, I felt confident that I knew all of the steps that I needed to take to succeed.
