Summary "The pre-med journey is often nerve-racking, competitive, and difficult. Students following the wrong advice suffer even more. Conversations with a Medical School Admissions Dean: A Primer on Preparing for Medicine includes a wealth of tips, collected stories, and advice from Sunny Nakae, who has been working in medical school admissions since 2001. The book is organized into five sections: (1) advice for students prior to beginning their pre-med journey, (2) making the most of your time as a pre-med student, (3) everything a student needs to know about the application process (and how to manage it well), (4) advice for pre-med students' parents and friends (how to support a student), and (5) what a student should know about gap years, re-applicant advice, and assessing future career paths. Through accessible and engaging anecdotes and advice, Nakae shifts the paradigm from "What do I need to do to get into medical school?" to "What kind of person do I need to be in order to become a physician?""-- Provided by publisher.
