Every BS/MD looks for different things in its applicants, and to those who don't know each school's particular preferences, college application results often seem random and unpredictable. They're nothing of the kind. All of our consultants have been on the admissions committees of top medical school programs, having read countless applications and knowing exactly what distinguishes the acceptances from the borderline rejections. We will tell you what each particular institution is searching for in those students it admits.
Personal Statement Assistance
The personal statement is the most important part of the college application and yet many applicants today continue to make mistakes in tone, content, or even topic. As part of our service, we will help you craft a compelling personal statement, which will showcase your hobbies, interests, and passions in a concise and compelling manner. We love assisting applicants in demonstrating their inner uniqueness in a beautifully written essay.
Strategic Positioning Consulting
All of our admissions consultants have extensive experience positioning undergraduate and graduate school applicants. The whole application needs to tell a story, to give the reader a narrative, and instead what admissions boards often see is a mishmash of contradicting information. Strategic positioning requires a comprehensive analysis of the applicant, the schools to be applied to, and the various strengths and weaknesses of the applicant. In the end, we make sure each applicant stands out from the crowd.
Recommenders and Recommendations
Most top students have surprisingly bland recommendation letters; we don’t let our clients get away with anything less than glowing letters. We advise you on which teachers would be best positioned to write you recommendation letters and how they would best be able to speak to your specific academic and personal strengths. We also help you prepare a cover letter, resume and portfolio of work from a recommender’s class to present at a personal meeting to maximize your recommendation letter’s impact on readers.
Research and Clinical Help
Most students today understand the importance of high grades and test scores, but what many don't realize is how important research and clinical experience are to one's acceptance into a BS/MD program. Our consultants will help in choosing and applying for the right research and clinical opportunities in order to maximize your chances of admission.
We prepare you for BS/MD interviews by teaching you to dictate your interview so that you control what is written on the interview evaluations by guiding the content and flow of the interview itself. Our admissions officers will prepare you for common questions that are asked during interviews and how to answer them effectively. They will also conduct a mock interview to insure that you are well-prepared for the task at hand.
