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.
My goal to get the best grades was much more than just a goal. It was an obsession. In fact, obsession is probably putting it lightly.
This extreme stress and anxiety didn't stop just with grades.
I knew very well that I also needed to be volunteering, doing clinical work, researching, etc. to be a great applicant.
To say I was busy is a major understatement. My friends and family told me to lighten up, but I couldn't!
I had to get into medical school!Why was I so driven? Why did I put so much time and effort into being a great medical school applicant?
Behind all that stress, busyness and focus was an intense fear of not getting into medical school.
What if after all of this work, I didn't get in? I knew very well that medical school was competitive. I saw my competition all around me, many of them much smarter than I was.
How in the world was I going to out-compete them?
The statistics fueled this fear.
Besides fearing my own failure, I also had a fear of letting down my parents and family. They had a lot riding on me, and I felt like I needed to live up to those expectations.
What would happen if I didn't?
Other than the fear of disappointing myself and my family, I had to think about what I would do if I couldn't get into medical school.
Would I have to settle for another career?
I knew that medicine was the career for me. I loved helping others, loved seeing patients, saw myself doing so much good in the world and finding so much peace through being a doctor.
I also realized that this was a career where I could provide comfortably for myself and my future family.
What if all that fell through? What if I was stuck doing something I didn't like, just scraping by financially, for the rest of my life?
Maybe you can relate to some or all of these fears. Maybe you've already applied to medical school and not gotten in. These fears are becoming more and more real.
Along with this fear of failure came great anxiety about whether all of my
activities were really the best things to help me get into medical school. I was
spending so much time working towards my goal, but in the back of my mind I had
Am I doing the right things?
Am I spending my time in activities that are really going to help me or am I just spinning my wheels?
Am I spending enough time in each activity?
What am I missing and what can I do better?
As the time drew nearer to actually apply to medical school, my questions became even more specific.
How many schools should I apply to?
What's the best way to prepare for interviews?
How should I describe my activities on AMCAS? Which activities should I include?
Certainly there were plenty of opinions out there to answer these questions. Student forums, teachers, counselors, parents, friends, etc.
However, I knew in the back of my mind that these opinions could only be trusted so far.
After all, how much could another person who was applying to medical school, who hadn't even been accepted, tell me how to get into medical school?
While the counselors gave good advice, they had certainly never made the decision of who got accepted and who didn't.
What I really needed was a clear outline of specific things to do to get into medical school, given by someone who had actually seen and made that decision.
In it you will find exactly what you need to do get into medical school, from the perspective of someone who was part of the decision of who got accepted and who didn't.
Once you have this book, you won't need to wonder any more how to get into medical school.
You'll have a clear, step-by-step plan of exactly what you need to do, how long you need to do it, and why you need to do it to get into medical school.
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.
-I.T., 2014 entering class at University of New Mexico Medical School
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
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.
-CM, Emergency Room Resident and Premed Mentor
“10 Steps to Accepted” is a must-have for any student who is considering medicine. Mike Frazier’s experience gives the premed student the rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of an admissions committee and see the factors that the top medical schools use to select applicants. His straightforward, no-nonsense steps will take you well beyond the many rumors found on message boards online so that you can spend less time wondering what you should do and more time improving your resume. This book breaks down every section of the application process – from undergraduate classes to the AMCAS to interviews – to tell you how to rise above the competition. You will have no doubt after reading this book how to get into medical school. It is clear that this book will quickly become the must-have resource for premed students.
-Dave McClaskey, MD. Family Medicine resident at UC San Diego. Guest speaker on Medical School Admissions at San Diego State University
During my time spent on the UCLA Admissions Committee, I learned exactly what it takes to get into a top medical school.
You'll get the insider information that will put you ahead of the rest when it comes to applying to medical school.
Why so cheap? Like I said, I've been in your shoes.
Like most premeds, I didn't have much money. I think at this price the book will be affordable on any budget.
Just skip the movies this weekend and read up on how to get accepted to medical school!
To make this deal even better,
These are my "words of wisdom" that I learned as I went through medical
school and ended up landing my top choice residency. Here are a few of the
benefits you'll find in this eBook:
This book by itself could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, as it could mean the difference between getting a top residency in a high paying career or not matching at all.
Maybe more important, the information here could mean the difference between matching into the residency you want and having to settle for something less.
Essentially, it could mean the difference between a happy career and an
Now, I know that sometimes eBooks can be a little bit scary to buy. I've bought some in the past that were total garbage.
I don't want you to feel like if you buy this, you're going to be stuck with something that won't be useful.
If you go through this book and feel like it wasn't useful in helping you know what to do to get into medical school, or for whatever other reason it wasn't worth the money, I am more than happy to give you a 100% refund within 30 days of your purchase.
I want you to feel like you got your money's worth and more through this purchase.
I want you to have a relief of that anxiety of not knowing what to do to make yourself a great applicant.
If you don't feel like that after you read it, I will gladly give you your money back and you can keep the eBooks.
As far as I can tell, this is the only book of its kind written by a former medical school admissions committee member.
There are other books on admissions out there, but none written by someone with this experience.
Now, in my opinion, this information is very valuable and will put you head and shoulders above the rest compared to other applicants.
Because of that,
After all, if everyone has it, it doesn't give you an advantage when you buy the eBooks.
To give you a frame of reference, in 2011, 43,919 people applied to medical school.
Multiply that by 4 and you get roughly the number of premed students in college at any time.
With these eBooks, you have the opportunity to be one of the 1,000 people to get an extreme edge on your competition.
In addition to giving you an edge,
I know that cash is in demand as a premed student. Tuition is expensive, books are expensive, and even applying to medical school is expensive.
This money can be used on whatever you want, but I would probably save it for interviews if I were you!
This will be a cash prize. You won't have to buy anything besides the books. You won't have to complete offers or sign up for things like those fake "free iPad" or "free $500 gift card to Best Buy" offers you see.
Just be one of the 1,000, and you're entered to win. It's that simple.
This prize will be delivered via PayPal by default, but the winner can decide another method of delivery if desired.
Now, just to be clear, if you ask for a refund (which you are entitled to do of course), you will not be eligible for the $1,000 prize.
Again, only the 1,000 buyers of the books wll be eligible for the prize. So, as a buyer, you have a 1 in 1,000 chance of winning.
That's a lot better odds than the lottery! And, if you don't win, instead of a worthless piece of paper, you have exclusive, insider information on how to beat your competition to get that acceptance letter.

After your purchase, you will be emailed a link that will allow you to download the eBooks in pdf format.
This way, you can access the books anywhere you have access to pdf files.
You have before you exclusive, insider information that
will put you ahead of your competition.
You can take advantage of this opportunity, giving yourself a significant advantage over the hundreds of thousands of other medical school applicants.
You can give yourself the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are doing the things that matter to medical school admissions committees.
You can know that you're on the track to an emotionally rewarding, financially stable and honorable career.
You can pass up this opportunity, giving your
competition the edge.
Just so we're clear, in 2011, there were 43,919 people
who applied to medical school in the United States. Of those applicants,19,230
That means that only 4 out of every 10 applicants were successful.
You may think that their MCAT and GPA were low, but we
rejected plenty of applicants with solid GPA and MCAT scores.
We rejected applicants because they didn't prepare themselves to be great applicants.
Some chose the wrong activities or even if they chose good ones, they didn't do them the right way.
For some who had good activities, they failed to present that information well on their AMCAS, personal statement or secondaries, or didn't present themselves well in interviews.
They may have gone about their letters of recommendation in the wrong way.
They certainly did not understand the principles behind each part of the medical school application that are clear in this eBook.
From this eBook, you will learn from their mistakes, putting you on the fast track for medical school acceptance.
If you choose to pass on this information, you may very likely repeat their mistakes, leading to your being part of the 60% that gets passed over.
That means a year of lost time toward your goal of becoming a doctor and incurring again the large cost of applying to medical school, which is several thousand dollars.
In the worst case, you may not get into medical school
at all, forcing you into a different career and robbing you and your future
patients of one of the most rewarding careers on earth.
But, it doesn't have to be that way!
Take action now and be one of the select few with access to the inner workings of the medical school admissions committee...
and I'll see you soon as a fellow doctor!

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.
