2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated and incorrect information make the book nearly useless Dec 26 2011
By Chip N Sawbones - Published on Amazon.com
A good deal of the vital statistics such as admission rates, tuition costs, out of state acceptance rates and average GPA and MCAT scores are wildly inaccurate. Some of this is probably because the statistics are outdated, while others are due to sloppy editing. Some of the mistakes are laughably obvious, but the result is that none of the numbers can be trusted. The book does provide a decent overview of most, but not all, of the US medical schools, but it is not a substitute for the latest edition of the MSAR. Save your money and buy something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars inaccurate information March 19 2013

Horrible book. A lot of inaccurate information. Example: on page 377 the books states "Yale does not participate in AMCAS." which is false!

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, slightly useful but buy the MSAR instead Aug. 14 2011
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Best 168 Medical Schools book was not that useful to me. I had the same year's MSAR (Medical School Admission Requirements) and the MSAR was 10x more useful in terms of information and browsing. I am not kidding, save yourself time and money and just get the MSAR instead. The Best 168 Medical Schools book simply doesn't have enough information in it to justify buying it. Some of the schools listed in it have the MCAT/GPA scores and tuition costs and others do not. Ummm, talk about incomplete. The MSAR has all information for every single school, not just 168, and it also has more information that pre-med students should be looking at, even if they don't know it yet. For example, residency matches, out of state accepted percentages, etc... MSAR--> [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reference in addition to the MSAR July 20 2010
By S. Ro - Published on Amazon.com
The sections for each school include Academics, Clinical Training, Campus Life, student life, graduates, admission requirements, suggestions, and process. The information is quite useful, but be aware, there are many errors!

1.0 out of 5 stars SERIOUS TYPOS! BEWARE... May 5 2013
By ieatwords - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wrote to the editorial team, but I wanted to let other potential buyers know about some SERIOUS typos contained in this book:

Pages 222-223: Information supplied is for Uniformed Services University, NOT Tufts University. There is no other listing for Tufts.
Pages 368-369: Information supplied looks like it is for West Virginia University School of Medicine, NOT Washington University in St. Louis. There is no second listing for Washington University in St. Louis. This is one of the top medical programs in the country, and should absolutely be listed properly.
Pages 372-373: There is a second listing for West Virginia University School of Medicine, but it is unclear which pages provide the correct information for the school.

Had I not been paying attention, I would have decided not to apply to some schools that are a good fit for me.

Medical school applicants have enough to worry about, without having to deal with incorrect resources. I'm sure there are more mistakes than I have found here, so I am no longer going to use this book. It's completely useless.
