Anyway, the bottom line is that Secret Route- while excellent fodder for SDN conversations- is otherwise full of crap. Getting into med school is really quite simple in theory. I'll save you however much they charge for the book and tell you how to do it for free!
1) Numbers: Overall GPA > 3.6, Science GPA > 3.5, MCAT > 30
2) Clinical Exposure: get some that's meaningful
3) Volunteer Work: get some that's meaningful (can be concurrent with #2)
4) Research: if you wish to get into a Top 50 school, do some significant research. Try to get your name published on the article, if at all possible.
If you do all of these things, don't acquire a criminal record, and are not a sociopath, you too can get into medical school.
