Synopsis: Discover why admissions officers from the nation’s top medical schools selected these essays of worthy applicants
With only a limited number of spaces available every year to the thousands of
qualified applicants to the nation’s top medical schools, a serious candidate must find
a way to set himself or herself apart from 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 is no such thing as
the perfect submission. The winning essays cover a wide range of interesting topics. If there is any similarity, it is that they are 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 considered some of the best by admissions officers at the nation’s top medical schools.
With creativity and effort, you can turn almost any topic into an effective, successful essay for your medical school application!
