    If I buy the online MSAR once, will it automatically get updated every year free of charge? Is it better than buying the book version (I believe it's the official guide to medical school admissions?) since that can get outdated?

    I'm pretty sure you have to buy it every year.

    Your purchase last 1 year, but it does update if a new one comes out.

    Okay, I see. So if I want to apply next year for medical school, I should buy the MSAR this June right?

    Yeah, it seems like you're right. It's probably better to buy it closer to application time.

    They no longer make the book version; it's only online now. I'm applying next year as well but I bought it earlier this year. Yeah, if you don't mind waiting until June or so to buy it, you'll only have to pay for one year. I'm not sure if it renews automatically, though.
