We have an extremely strong track record of medical school acceptances.
Common acceptances our students receive are from these universities:
DO Schools: Western, Lincoln Memorial, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Alabama College, Burrell College, VCOM-Virginia
Keep in mind that we help students coming from varying pre-medical journeys. Our youngest advisee was 18-years-old when she applied to medical school and our oldest applicant was in his 40’s. We’ve coached postbacc students, non-traditional students, college juniors going directly to medical school, nationally and internationally-ranked athletes.
World class advisers: We help our students achieve their dreams. We’ve studied applications almost our entire lives. Drs. Rizal and Mediratta are inspired by our peers who achieve at the highest levels in clinical medicine, research, public health, public policy, business, writing, and art. We share their experiences and lessons with you.
No word limits and character limits: Almost every other college consulting service will have word and character counts for what counts as “1 essay edit.” We do not believe in that. Please read our “no word limits, really” FAQ response for details about why we have this philosophy.
Passion and Dedication: Mentoring and advising is a high priority for us, because we love it so much. We are actively engaged in the community and give talks about “how to get into medical school” at undergraduate universities, premed organizations, and postbacc programs across the United States. Our advisers are the best mentors and coaches you’ll find.
Teaching Experience: We’ve taught high school students, undergraduates, and graduate students in subjects ranging from medicine to leadership to basic science to public policy to public health. Why does this matter? We’re invested in your growth. We don’t tell you what to do, and instead, we know how to teach and coach you to become better. Check out a feature about Dr. Mediratta’s COVID-19 course at Stanford here.
Leadership skills and development: We know what it takes to get to the top and to win. We’ve been teaching high school students leadership skills for the past 15 years. We’ll be transferring these same skills that helped us and our mentees to be successful to YOU!
Ample Experience: Dr. Mediratta and Dr. Rizal have read over 20,000 college, medical school, and scholarship essays! It’s in your best interest to work with advisers who have read thousands of essays so that you do not submit generic responses.
Unique Essays: We will make sure that each of your medical school secondary application essays is tailored to your personal interests and strengths. This is how we make sure each person is unique.
School Specific: Our previous students attend medical schools across the United States, including the top 10 medical schools. We know their experiences, extracurricular activities, and ups and downs. Why is this important to your med school secondaries? We apply this knowledge to your BS MD applications and individual college supplemental applications. We understand the curriculum, culture, and unique opportunities available at each of the universities we will help you with.
No word limits and character limits: When we help you with through each school’s medical school essay edit, we want to read all your essays without word and character limits. Don’t worry about limits and number of revisions. We have your back the entire process from brainstorming to final editing!
Lifelong mentorship: Because we view our advising as a lifelong mentorship, we keep in touch with many of our students throughout their medical careers. We want the skills we teach you during the medical school application cycle to be applied to your medical school career, residency, and future jobs. Several of our mentees have joined us in residencies at Harvard and Stanford hospitals.
Dr. Rachel Rizal and Rishi Mediratta will be your application coaches. We love mentoring and advising! 🙂 We see ourselves as your mentors for life. Many of our students who have worked with us for their medical school applications are now our advisees for residency applications.
Yes! Our medical school essay editing service does not include word limits and character limits. Our philosophy is that each medical school secondary application you submit for a particular school needs to be as strong as it can be. We are committed to helping you put your best foot forward towards each medical school, and we don’t want to limit your chances based on word or character count.
For the 2019-2020 application cycle, Duke Medical School had 7 500-word essays plus 3 additional optional essays. We will not count that as multiple secondaries. Many other schools have more than 4 essay prompts, and we want to make sure all your medical school essays complement each other.
Finally, another reason we stick to our no limit philosophy is that we want to encourage students to apply to special programs. For instance, many students will apply to University of California PRIME (Programs In Medical Education) programs because they have a particular interest in global health, public health, and underserved communities. Therefore, our medical school secondary essay editing review includes optional essays and unique program essays.
We aim to turnaround your personal statement and secondary essay edits within 48-72 hours. We check emails constantly, so we will answers the questions you have promptly.
We will ask you details about your college, BS MD, or scholarship interview. What school? What’s the interview format? When is your interview?
Then, we will schedule a mock interview with you over video chat.
Each mock interview is 60 to 75 minutes. During this time, we will ask you several questions and give you our frank and direct feedback. If we need to practice some responses again and again, we can do so. This interview preparation is personalized and tailored for each student to shine!
Working with us is a great investment because we have helped students win several scholarships, making college cheaper!
