Now out: 50 Successful Harvard Medical School Essays by St. Martin’s Press

I am not interested in attending medical school but nonetheless was most intrigued by these essays. Each tells a story of a person’s life and the ethos behind their hopes and dreams.

Prospective medical students may find this book to be quite helpful as it includes not only the essays but also information about test scores, the college attended by the applicant and more. My only caveat is that applicants should consider the importance of retaining their own voice. It could be easy to want to frame one’s experiences in a format described in the book. I would suggest writing your own essay before taking a look at these.
Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.
