Write For Success

Third Edition, 2005

Write for Success: Preparing a Successful Professional School Application is geared specifically to helping you write clearly for the tasks related to the health professions application process. Through the use of examples of both successful and unsuccessful applications, critical reviews of actual applications by three admissions deans, and experienced advice from the authors, Write for Success will help you to realize your dreams of matriculating into a health professional school.

The importance of writing clearly must not be underestimated. Admissions committees report that factors other than GPA and entrance exam scores play a critical role in the evaluation process. One of the criteria mentioned repeatedly is the personal comment section of the health professional application. Write for Success is designed to help the student with writing this statement for the professional school application.
