Most of what I have to say about medical school admissions has been answered in response to individual questions rather than in blogs; that's probably because I haven't had a medical school client in the last year, so I haven't thought to post particular issues, relying instead on the questions that Quorans ask.

As I come across those questions and answers, they will be added to this page, but the previous blog on medical school admissions on Quora will be closed.
