Looking for a trusted advisor to help you get into medical school?
Getting into medical school is tougher than ever. We've all heard stories of qualified applicants who didn't get in anywhere.
Having a strong GPA and MCAT score, conducting research, shadowing physicians for 100’s of hours, doing tons of extracurriculars, and getting great recommendation letters is unfortunately not enough. There is so much misinformation about what it takes to get into medical school. Whereas some of what you read and hear is accurate, much of it isn't. How do you decide?
Even worse, you may be stressing yourself out by comparing yourself to other premeds out of worry that you're missing something critical to getting in. Despite feeling like every other med school applicant has accomplished at least as much as you have, we can help you stand out to get admissions committees' attention.
Our highly individualized, data-driven, and exclusive approach to admissions consulting will allow you tell an engaging story through all of your application materials about why you're uniquely fit to become a physician.
In fact, during the past 15+ years, over 90% of our students have gotten into AT LEAST one U.S. med school—the first time they apply!
Some of the med schools to which our students have been accepted:
Even more meaningful than this "Accepted To" list, is the EXCITEMENT our students express when they finally break through the monstrous med school admissions process. Here are some examples of text & email messages we routinely receive from students:
How we can help you get into medical school
Our comprehensive services are designed to:
Help you decide where to apply to maximize admissions odds based on your stats and preferred locations while balancing safety, target, and reach schools
Help you write and refine an outstanding AMCAS personal statement without sounding cliche to demonstrate your passion for medicine—even if you're struggling to find the right topic
Effectively and interestingly discuss extracurriculars in the Work/Activities section of your AMCAS application
Help you craft unique secondary essays within word limits, even when you're feeling essay fatigue
Turn your work around within 24 to 48 hours
Ensure that you stick to an admissions timeline to take advantage of the rolling admissions process and reduce stress
Prepare you to ace admissions interviews through mock interviews and additional role plays for difficult-to-answer questions
Support you whenever you're feeling super stressed or under intense pressure
Answer all of your med school-related questions to remove the mystery from the admissions process
What differentiates us from other med school admissions consultants
Once our students complete the application process, we like to have a debriefing conversation with them to understand how we can support students better and better each year. The three points our students consistently mention about why they appreciated our support—beyond our students' 90+% success rate—are:
Reputation For Quality
When we say "unlimited" essay support, we mean it. We once edited a student's personal statement 14 times until it was strong enough to submit. Now, most of our students' personal statements don't take that long to edit (most students need 4-5 rounds), but we want to emphasize that we'll do whatever it takes to help you get in.
Fast Turnaround Times
We commit to our advertised 48-hour turnaround times. Whether your primary advisor is ill or has to deal with an emergency, you send your essay before a major holiday, or anything else, someone is available to step in and support you.
In addition to asking us technical admissions-related questions and sending us material for editing and review, you should never hesitate to reach out even if you just want to vent. The med school admissions process is intellectually and emotionally tough. We want you to get into your dream school, and also to feel optimistic, motivated, and supported throughout.
