I was looking at the websites of various medical schools and wondering where are the applications? Apparently they are forwarded online to AMCAS and I'm guessing the essay information is in there as well. Well the reason I'm making this post is because I wanted to get a head start on writing some essays. I am applying for applicaition for 2011 so I'm starting very early. But i was just wondering if the essay topics change from year to year and how could I manage to get some essay topics this year for a head start. Would it be worth it to sign up on the AMCAS website and request applications from schools or would I have to pay for this? I'm really not too familiar with the whole online process. Also if you don't mind, please feel free to share some of your medical school essay topics and for which school it was for.
