Why Solomon Med School Admission Consulting?
All of our medical school admissions consultants are either doctors or medical school students who have personal experience applying to and being accepted by some of the best medical schools in the country. They will provide you with highly individualized advice on every aspect of your medical school application.
Strategic Positioning Consulting and School Selection Help
Personal Statement Assistance
Our medical school admissions consultants have extensive experience positioning medical school applicants. The whole application needs to tell a story, to give the reader a compelling narrative on your reasons for pursuing medicine, but instead what admissions committees often see is a mishmash of contradicting information. Our consultants will analyze your candidacy, suggest schools which would be a good match for your career goals, and will help you formulate your narrative. In the end, they will make sure that your candidacy stands out from the crowd.
The personal statement is a unique application component as it allows you to use your creativity. However, it also presents a particular challenge, since many applicants simply aren't aware of what should be included and what medical schools are hoping to see in such an essay. As part of our service, we will help you craft a compelling personal statement, which will showcase your strengths and experiences in a concise and compelling manner. What we can promise is that we will go much further than just grammar corrections - we will help you compose the best essay possible.
Secondary Application Assistance
The Secondary Application stage is not an easy one. After you submit your AMCAS application, the next stage is writing your secondary essays. And if you've applied to many schools, you will have a multitude of different essays. Our medical school admissions consultants have gone through this process themselves and will help you navigate this process from start to finish. They will advise you on how to approach the different questions and will help you compose memorable and exceptional secondary essays.
Mock Interview Preparation
The interview is an important component of your application and it can present a serious challenge as admissions officers tend to ask very specific questions about one's application and are looking for the right types of responses. Our consultants will prepare you for medical school interviews by analyzing your candidacy and outlining what you should emphasize in your interview, by going through a mock interview where they will ask you commonly asked questions, and by improving your presentation skills.
Insider Information on Medical School Preferences
AMCAS Application Help
Everyone knows that each medical school is unique, but what most applicants may not realize is that this also means that each medical school is looking for its own version of the ideal student. Our consultants will help you understand what each specific medical school is looking for in its candidates and will help you emphasize that part of your background which will be most helpful when applying to that school.
The AMCAS application may seem imposing and lengthy with all of its various components. As part of our service, we will help you craft a timeline for submission of all of your materials and will assist you in creating a perfect application in both content and style. We will also help you with any questions you may have in navigating the website and will offer you advice based on our own experiences with applying to medical school.
Extracurricular Activities Consulting
The work/activities section, which summarizes your research, clinical and volunteer experience, is an important part of your medical school application and yet most applicants often tend to give it only limited attention. Our consultants will advise you on which activities to include and will consult you on how to present these activities in the best light possible. They will also share with you techniques that have been the most successful when composing these sections.
Letters of Recommendation
Most top students have surprisingly bland recommendation letters; we don’t let our clients get away with anything less than glowing letters. Our consultants will advise you on which professors, advisors, or managers 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.
