My good friend, Ryan Nguyen over at Practical Premed came up with a wonderful idea for a post a couple of months back. We assembled a group of applicants who have been successful in the medical school application process and had them answer common questions and clear up any misconceptions for future applicants. Part 1 of this "roundtable" discussion is posted here. I think the post contains a ton of useful information, and would have loved something like it back when I applied. If you are considering applying anytime in the near future, this is a must read. Let me know what you think!
