Rachel Winston Really Knows Her Stuff

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The author, Dr. Rachel Winston, knows about all major fields and gives much of her time to free conferences. Few people can actually have enough knowledge base to be able to accurately see the global picture, and fill in all the details that are appropriate. This book helps show the big picture of medical school, and how an individual can make the most of it. In this book, Rachel Winston focuses on perhaps the most rigorous of all vocations: medicine. Those that wish to become a doctor often feel family pressure from a young age, have put enormous pressure on for studying, and see how many facets being successful in the real-world practice of medicine actually has.

This book does a great job at explaining the most direct path from high school to becoming a doctor: BS + MD programs. For a student who has made the mental decision to become a doctor, he or she should be armed with the best information, the best motivation and the best guidance, especially in tough times such as the Coronavirus. In the big picture, hopefully this can help a few more people push through and become practicing medical doctors. Certainly, the world needs more qualified, motivated doctors to help solve our world problems.

Must Have: Counselors, Parents, Students

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I bought and reviewed this book for possible extended family use and was amazed by its comprehensive coverage of the how-to of getting into the most appropriate medical school and branch of medicine. It certainly makes clear a pathway to a profession prized for its many rewards. The passion to persevere and the extremely hard work just to get into medical school will not go away, but knowing that no stone was left unturned to get the job done will be a life-long satisfaction, whether successful or not. Dr. Winston’s book is key to this aim. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Comprehensive & Concise, Complete & Comprehensible

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Talented children? Smart grandchildren? In the ninth or tenth or eleventh grade, give them Dr. Winston’s book. With its modern graphics and insights, it provides easy-to-grasp information for decisions and the pathways to proceed. Just the clear, half-page on “AP Scholars” justifies buying the book. I wish I had Winston’s knowledge when I was in school. Bet you would have too; even if you became a doctor later! Highly needed and recommended. No children? Give it to a school counselor and make the world a better place.

Must Read!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book is very comprehensive. Dr. Winston shares her knowledge and expertise on applying to BS/MD programs and provides detailed information on each of the programs,  nationwide. I have not seen a more thorough examination of these programs! The step-by-step process, the guides at the back of the book, and the invaluable tips she gives are particularly helpful.

Anything from this Author is Well Researched and Written – This Book is No Different

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Consistently pragmatic and to the point while including well-conceived background and support for her assertions. The author is well known for thinking of everything, a very holistic approach, including important aspects of the process (the road to med school), some of which will make you ask yourself why you didn’t think of that, while covering other more esoteric aspects that only an expert could and would know.

No one understands the process of getting from point A to point B educationally than this author, who has once again outdone herself, this time in pursuit of medicine. I hope and believe this book will help close the growing gap between available medical resources and the need for quality medical services.

Great Guide for the BS/MD Application Process

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book was amazing! It spelled out the steps of the application clearly and in a way that is easy to understand/follow. It includes all relevant data, saves you from hours of research, and is well designed. My favorite part is the diagrams which are put in the back of the book. They include all the BS/MD programs in America, their requirements, location, and deadlines. This is a great read!
