Great book other than a couple things and some updates needed
on February 1, 2014
I really liked this book for guiding through my fourth year of medical school and the match process. it's short, concise, and easy to read, unlike other "novel like" match books :-). Everything in the book is pretty accurate, except for the description of the SOAP process which is wrong just because it was updated after the book came out...hopefully the next edition will have the right info. Also I think a couple approaches are not the best...first the book says to only tell your number 1 ranking school that you'll be ranking it one. But what my school says which I agree with, is to let your top few schools know that you're highly interested during ranking time, but don't give a specific rank. Also I don't like that for the interview thank you letter section, it says you can tell a lot of schools you will rank them highly...I think a better way to phrase it is you'll consider the program deeply...because usually during interview time, you don't know how you're going to rank the school yet, and you're really not being truthful if you say you're going to rank all the schools highly. Other than that, the info is great!
