Medical School Interview Book

“Dr. Gray has compiled a very detailed, comprehensive, and practical book on the medical school interview. What makes this book so unique is his emphasis on the introspective process. Instead of simply providing a checklist of do’s and don’ts, he challenges the reader to examine their strengths and weaknesses and gives them a blueprint on how to put their best foot forward. His advice is real-world and complied by many interviewers, including myself, who have years of experience interviewing medical school applicants. I highly recommend this book as a fundamental preparation tool for the application process.”
