Publisher Comments:

Discover why admissions officers from the nations 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 nations 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 nations top medical schools.

With creativity and effort, you can turn almost any topic into an effective, successful essay for your medical school application!
