    I had hard time writing letters for my students in the past 3 years after I became a faculty member. I have to write dozens of them for the whole department in a short period of time. This book make it easy as you can play around with the instructions and add the specific things for every student. Very satisfied with this book.

    Can't complain much, it helped me with 2 letters writing and the doctors who signed were ok with them. The most important thing is I got decent number of interview maybe the letters helped beside my average scores.

    I was searching for such guide for the past couple of months. Am interested in University programs that have GI fellowships and I had a fellow told me that our letters play a big role in residency selection to start with. I came across this book and so far I like it. I helped writing my letters and a lot of things I wouldn't know without this aid. I personally think that a good letter can get you invite. Hopefully these letters are optimal and please wish me luck!!

    I liked the samples provided in this instructional guide. I didn't know that it can look that good after all. I think top programs will be looking for such organized letters, am not sure about community ones but it is good to have a well written letter that push your application up the rank rather than add to your frustrations. Some attendings don't have the appetitie to write you a good letter and they migh copy paste from other applicants and this create a problem of trust with the program directors as happend with one of my friends last year. I would rather write my own and give it to them to sign it and upload. My attenings didn't have an issue with that but really they were very happy that I was saving their time with these detailed letters. I f your attending ask you to help writing the letter then I would get this guide before I handle them the letters as this will improve the quality a lot. I recommend that these guidlines to be followed to be on the safe side.
