Med School Application Advice I Wish I Had Received

"IF YOU ARE IN THE process of applying to medical school, it may seem like everyone from your premedical adviser to your mother to strangers on the internet are itching to give you their two cents.

As the opinions pile up, it will become clear that some pieces of advice are better than others – and that misconceptions around getting into medical school abound. As a current fourth-year medical student and someone who has navigated the admissions process relatively recently, here are four observations about medical school admissions that I wish I had heard before sending in my applications:

- Medical schools like applicants who are likely to attend their school if accepted.
- Four or five years is too long to live in a place you hate.
- The flaws on your application may be smaller than you think.
- If you can, avoid internet forums during interview season.
