The Web is a cornucopia of valuable information for medical school
applicants. Whether looking for help with the MCAT, suggestions on interview
techniques, material on different medical schools, or the latest on those much
maligned - and watched - rankings, it's somewhere on the Web.

We would appreciate it if you could also share with us, and consequently other
medical students, sites that you found valuable in your application process.
