    Am using this book to write letters for my students applying to surgery residency. This book makes a lot of sense and works as an awesome guide. Make it very easy for me to finish letters on time. Last year my students were very happy with the interviews they got. I think this book is very good tool to improve the quality and contents of the letters and get our students more interviews especially in better university programs.

    I think major factor that made me match in surgery is the well formatted letters based on the recommendations of this book. I think the way it looks gives a strong first impression on the program directors. I advice people applying to residency especially in surgery to get this book and follow the instructions on how to write their letter in a way that get them more interviews.

    This year I got more interviews by rewriting my letters and submitting them based on the details mentioned here. My attendings had no problem reviewing and signing. If you want to waive your rights then you have to handle it for them to submit. Good resource for surgery applicants.
