Discover why admissions officers from the nation’s top medical schools selected these essays of worthy applicants
With only a limited number of spaces to be had once a year to the thousands of
qualified applicants to the nation’s top medical schools, a serious candidate will have to find
a way to set himself or herself except for the crowd. The essay is your one chance to
highlight the personal qualities and achievements that the application and MCAT
scores do not reveal.
As Essays That Worked for Medical Schools demonstrates, there’s no such thing as
the perfect submission. The winning essays cover quite a lot of interesting topics. If there is any similarity, it is that they’re written from the heart. One applicant writes about his work as a counselor for mentally ill adults and teens. Another tells about the life-changing experience of delivering much needed supplies to a leprosy village in West Africa. And a third applicant talks about time spent volunteering at a local senior center. From the thousands submitted each year, the essays in this book were regarded as one of the best by admissions officers at the nation’s top medical schools.
With creativity and effort, you’ll turn almost any topic into an effective, successful essay for your medical school application!
