Dear Future Doctor,
My name is Mike Frazier and I'm a former UCLA medical school admissions committee member and graduate of UCLA medical school. I remember well the days when I was a premed student. It seemed like everything I was doing was geared towards one goal: getting into medical school. I was studying like crazy, volunteering all over the place, and working part time, all the while wondering if what I was doing was enough to get accepted.
Maybe you can relate. Before I spent time on
the UCLA admissions committee, I had a pretty good idea of what it took to get
into medical school. After my time on the admissions committee, I can tell you
that I now understand exactly what it takes
to get accepted to a top medical school like UCLA.
After extensive research of medical schools, their average MCAT and GPA, and their accepted students, I found this rule of thumb.
You can follow this to help you narrow down the number of schools you choose.
If your MCAT is more than 4 (more than 5-6 for 2015 MCAT) below the school's average and your GPA is more than 0.4 below, you'll probably want to look elsewhere.
Is it still possible to get in? Yes. And we'll address that in the book as well!
I worked with Mike through the entire admissions process. He really knows his stuff and was extremely professional and amazing to work with. I was rejected last year with essentially the same application as this year. Thanks to Mike's help, I've been accepted to 6 MD medical schools, including El Paso, Eastern Virginia, St. Louis University, Tx A&M, Miami and TCOM! And still have a few interviews to go! I highly recommend Medical School Inside Track as a complete package to get you accepted to the school of your choice.

Today I got accepted Early Decision Program to University of New Mexico!
I interviewed Sept 11, Accepted yesterday Sept 30th, 2013.
Dr. Frazier's book "10 Steps to Accepted: An Insider's Guide to Getting Into Medical School" takes you inside the mind of an ADCOM Member in a Top university. When I started reading through the pages, everything resonated. From MCAT preparation, great tips on how to write your personal statement, your experiences and his tips on how to tell what you did (experiences) in a way that makes an impression on the committee, he covered it all.
Nut shell, his book will help you write your application and do your interviews in such a way that will set you apart from the "who was that again?" pile of applicants to the "unforgettable candidate" pile.
My application is proof, getting accepted just 19 days after my interview! I highly recommend this book also for undergraduate students considering medical school as it covers aspects on how to stand out in class and to get good recommendation letters (very important for Med School), choosing good extracurricular activities etc.
His tips on secondaries and interviews were the best, and they helped me nail my secondary applications and interview questions. During both of my interviews I used tips from his book to set my agenda and ended up having a great rapport with both interviewers, and it turned out to be more of a discussion.
The book on How to Succeed in Medical School is a must have for anyone recently accepted. I am already setting targets and planning out my studies. Looking at his USMLE scores, I think he knows what he is talking about in this book.
I couldn't recommend both books more highly.
-Ivo Teneg, 2014 entering class at University of New Mexico Medical School
I had applied multiple times in the past without success. I worked with Mike to try to make my dream of becoming a doctor a reality. All I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH! After several years, I finally was accepted to medical school! I was accepted at Wake Forest and MCW :) I cannot thank you enough for your tremendous help! I highly recommend Dr. Frazier as an expert in getting people into medical school. It was his help that got me in!
-Alia Ghoneum, 2014 entering class
I was sort of a non-traditional applicant. I wasn't sure that I wanted to get into medical school until quite a bit later in my college career. I was in a post-bacc program getting the medical school requirements done when I got in touch with Mike. Mike's advice on my personal statement and activities helped me to develop an application that more fully represented me as a person. I most appreciated his guidance on how to make my personal statement and AMCAS application more personable. I was proud of my final application, and I was ultimately accepted to Harvard, Brown, UCSF and the University of Colorado. It was great to have Mike’s objective input and I would definitely recommend his help to other premed students.
-Michelle L, Harvard Medical School
This book is the sole thing that kept my head on straight while I was trying to get into medical school. I was applying with a less than stellar MCAT and GPA , so I wanted to make sure that I had the best chance of getting accepted. So many times I was not sure where to start or what the next step was. This book clearly lays out things that you must do to make yourself a stronger applicant. I was amazed at how detailed it was with each aspect of the application/interview/ acceptance process.My very favorite part was its discussion about the interview. This saved my neck during my interviews! Many of the schools asked me things that were exactly what Mike covered! I was completely in the dark about this process and this book sets it up so logically that it took away all my nerves going into the interview day.My MCAT and GPA weren't the best going into the interview, but I felt prepared and ended up being accepted to Midwestern Medical School! I definitely have this book to thank for my acceptance and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to get into medical school.
-Blake Hansen, Midwestern Medical School
I just wanted to say that after reading this book I felt like I was able to completely organize my thoughts regarding exactly what I need to do to become competitive for medical schools in California rather than other books that are for inspiration purposes. I especially appreciated the concrete examples of strong and weak extracurricular activities and now I have a specific plan for what to do during my summer to make myself a better applicant. Thank you for writing such a great book!
-Calivn Sung, premed student, UCLA
Just wanted to say thanks for the e-books. I have read quite a bit of information on the application process and your books are a great summary of some of the best info I have found along with some extra valuable tips. The organization is great, making the books very readable and an excellent reference. I feel like I have a clear path now on how to get into medical school.
-Steve Lesche, premed student
I would've loved to have a resource this comprehensive, organized, and
concise when I was applying to medical school to understand exactly how to get
into medical school. I used a lot of
different resources throughout the application process but this makes it so easy
to find everything you need to know in one place and it even has
the links provided for the MSAR, etc. Also, I really didn't know what happened
with my application and how it was scored/ranked when I applied and that would
have been helpful to know.
This is a really great resource and it is all encompassing. I will most definitely recommend it to anyone I meet who is premed.
-Gillian Kulikowski, Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Medical Student and Medical Student Mentor
I would describe this book as an EXCELLENT and COMPREHENSIVE resource for students applying to medical school to understand exactly how to get into medical school. When I was going through the medical school application process, the one thing I wished I could have was an accurate, comprehensive and timely resource like this.
After years of asking several different people for their informed (and sometimes uninformed) opinions, I still found myself asking how best to make myself a competitive applicant. This book does an amazing job at addressing this and the many other common questions that students face during their premed years. Further it tackles these questions and concerns in a way that is simple to understand and act upon. Finally, this book will raise your awareness on questions most premed students do not even consider about how to get into medical school as a result of being overwhelmed with varying opinions from persons that do not have an understanding of the application process.
I also find this book summarizes exceptionally well the often daunting subject of the cost of paying for medical school . As a mentor of several applicants, I have come to find that more than occasionally, misinformation on the availability of resources for paying for medical school can sometimes serve as a deterrent to otherwise great candidates. This book goes into well-described and summarized detail on resources available to applicants on how to get into medical school, even ones that are often overlooked.
Overall, armed with the perspective of a former applicant, and now a mentor to several successful applicants, I would rate this book as the best resource I have seen for undergraduate students looking for a comprehensive guide to applying to medical school . It will help you decide if medicine is for you, inform you on how best to prepare for a career in medicine, and frankly, leave you with tips that are very applicable to your application process, all this without overwhelming you with too much information.
