I have that book too, and I thought the advice it gave (aside from the actual essays, which I thought were outdated) was somewhat helpful. If anything, the list of characteristics that adcoms find desirable in a future doctor is worth looking at.Originally posted by woolie
I would be interested in hearing other people's comments here too. I seem stuck on what to say exactly; I am a good writer normally, but it seems whatever I write sounds like drivel.
I have the 'Essays to get you into Med School' book and to be honest, alot of them sound like Hollywood stories, or screen plays. I just want to say something honest with no gimmicks or flash, and I feel stuck as well. I am going to just try and write several copies and versions and keep psuhing until something decent comes out; plus have other people read them over.
