    I have a question about the MSAR, before I pay $25 to receive it.
    I want to know how many people apply from each university in my state to a specific medical school.

    In other the words, the total number of applications that are produced from each undergrad institution.
    Is the MSAR the correct thing to purchase for this ?

    It doesn't get that in depth. Only the number of applicants from in state and out of state.

    Thanks!
    The universities post numbers, but I think they are the manipulated numbers that most universities post.

    The MSAR should be considered the required textbook for applying to MD school
    The AMCAS pdf Instructions should be considered the review sheet for the final exam in applying to medical school
    Every applicant should buy access as the $25 is only 0.01% of the cost of medical school over all

    I wish they sold msar in a book like they used to instead of a subscription.

    The MSAR is worth it even only if you consider the money saved for not applying to schools for which you have no chance of getting into.

    As others have mentioned to me. The MSAR is definitely a great tool for those who have questions and/or are interested in a certain program. Though I am far away from applying, the MSAR thus far have provided me great info on some programs and their requirements on some courses.
