Best Graduate Schools 2018 by Anne McGrath
US News hasn’t updated its “Ultimate Guide to Medical Schools” since 2010. And it’s a real shame because it was a very solid guide dedicated to med schools. Consequently, we are now recommending this more updated guide even if much of it focuses on graduate programs outside of medicine.
Barron’s Guide to Medical & Dental Schools by Dr. Saul Wischnitzer and Edith Wischnitzer
Students of the biological sciences can expect tremendous career opportunities. Barron’s Guide to Medical and Dental Schools is a valuable decision-making tool that provides all the components you will need to make your best career choice. Because coursework in high school and the first two years of college are largely the same for medicine and dentistry careers, many details presented in this book apply to both fields. Unfortunately, like the US News Ultimate guide noted in the review above, this guide has not been updated in several years either. Nonetheless, there is nothing better that we’ve yet uncovered.
