Applying to Medical School

The Admission Process: Timetable

Based on what you have read up to this point, you can see that the admission process in reality begins when you start to think you might want to become a physician. It is a complex and prolonged ordeal that all students must pass through. Doing it right is critical to success. Deadlines need to be met and careful thought and preparation is imperative. It is also a costly process. It is to your advantage to be as well informed as possible. Sources of information, aside from this book, are your advisor, upper-class students, admissions personnel, and alumni.

Tracking Table 1 (page 667) provides you with a checklist of your activities that extend from the time you enter college until you complete the process. You can mark off each step as it is completed and thus know what you have done and what tasks lie ahead.
