Learn my secrets to succeed

Medical schools receive thousands of applications a year. Make yourself stand out.

 

General Consult

This is the best option if you’re not sure where to begin, want general help, or have a LOT of questions. I’ll review your background information beforehand, then we’ll have a one-on-one conversation about how to enhance your candidacy, go over what your best options are, answer any questions you may have, and create a game plan for you to reach your dreams. Whether you’re a pre-med freshman or you graduated ten years ago, I can help you.

POST BACCALAUREATE ADVISING

Interested in a post bacc? It's ten times more complicated than medical school applications. I could literally write a book on these things with all the research and interviews I’ve done, and I would if the market didn’t change so rapidly. The world of postbaccs is exhausting and consuming. Fortunately I know which programs have the best chances of getting you into medical school, which ones used to be good but recently changed (one program used to have virtually guaranteed admission before they quadrupled their class size, now ensuring only the top 25% have a chance. Know which one this is? I do.), and which ones just aren’t worth your time—don’t do an MPH. Just…. don’t. With AACOMAS’s recent decision to do away with grade replacement, this is a great option for applicants with a sub-par gpa. Unfortunately this means they’re about to get flooded with far more applicants than before. Get a head start before everyone else.

Mock interview session

If you’ve made it an interview, they’re going to take around a third to half of you. It’s crucial you set yourself apart here. I knew a guy with a 3.9 gpa and 510 MCAT score who didn’t get in because of his horrible interviewing skills. 

I’ll talk you through the different types of interview styles you can expect and how to answer accordingly. We’ll also review the questions you’ll commonly be asked, how to explain any rough patches on your transcript (believe me, they WILL ask and you better have a good answer ready) how to respond to “do you have any questions for us?” at the end of the interview, as well as general decorum and manner of speech.
Please send background information first so I can tailor questions to you.

Note: You may notice that other companies offer skype, and might wonder why I don't. I've done both and honestly video doesn't offer any additional help at all.

MCAT ADVISING

If you haven’t taken this, I can tell you it’s not as hard as you think. It’s worse. When I first took it I had no idea what I was doing, and I was all on my own. I’ll tell you exactly how I turned things around and went from a laughable score to top 5% in the country. Don’t waste your money on expensive prep courses—I should know, I took one. I’ll tell you what materials and resources to use, and precisely how to use them to get the best score possible.

Personal Statement Editing

Unless you have an amazing gpa and MCAT, this is usually what makes the difference between an interview invite and having your application tossed into the rejection pile. This is not like writing an essay in English class, and the pre-med advisors at your school who never even applied to medical school don’t know what they’re talking about and WILL lead you down the wrong path. There’s a general formula that admissions committees like to see, and I’ll tell you what to say, how to say it, and help you avoid generic tropes that will get you rejected immediately.

Secondary essay editing

Secondaries. You’ll come to hate these because they pile up very quickly. Secondary essays are the school-specific mini-essays sent out by schools after you submit a primary application through AACOMAS or AAMCAS. If your top choice school sends you a secondary essay, you’ll want to make sure you answer them perfectly.
