Can I schedule sessions before my payment plan is paid off?
Yes! You can begin scheduling tutoring sessions right away after signing up.

If you plan to change your billing method during your payment plan period, please keep your information up-to-date in your billing account to avoid losing access.
Do I need to complete every video in the Strategy Session?

The tips I share in this Session will help you make the most of every minute you have to study for CARS, maximizing your CARS score. For this reason, you’ll need to watch each video.

How can I provide feedback on these new quizzes?
When will quizzes be added to more lessons?
We currently have a team of student interns and tutors for each of the five subjects in our free e-course, and they are writing questions in sequential order. We are adding quizzes as soon as they are written, and our goal is to have quizzes in all lessons by Spring 2022.
What is the best way to use these quizzes?
We recommend using these quizzes as the last thing you do in a lesson before moving on. You should thoroughly learn the material by watching our videos, referencing content review books, and using our Quizlet before trying these quiz questions. Some students may also want to do them as a part of their “Final Practice” lesson to confirm their understanding.
Are these quizzes going to replace our existing flashcards?
No, we are creating these quizzes as an extra resource for our students! Our 5,300+ Quizlet flashcards are a great learning tool that have helped many students and our tutors score in the 97th+ percentile. These quizzes are just another way to test your understanding, and require a deeper understanding than our notecards require.
Why can’t I see answer explanations until the end of the quiz?
Because there may be multiple questions testing similar or related concepts, we do not show answer explanations until the end of the quiz. This is similar to when you take full length exams, and gives a more accurate representation of what you knew before starting that quiz.
Is there a way to make the periodic table larger?
We are currently working on making the periodic table larger, but for now, there are two options. You can zoom the browser in to read that periodic table, or you can open a periodic table up in another tab for quick reference.
Are these quizzes an accurate portrayal of AAMC style questions?
Although we are not writing passages to go along with questions, these questions are meant to be similar to the AAMC discrete-style questions, which make up a quarter of each science section. Whereas our Quizlet is meant more for learning the content, these quiz questions test your ability to understand what was taught in this lesson. You should not use percentages from our quizzes to predict your MCAT score, though, since only full length exams and AAMC questions should be used for that.
What can be covered in one consulting session?
A single consulting session has enough time to review over 5,000 characters worth of essays, meaning that an entire Personal Statement could be reviewed in one session. A single session could also be used as a mock interview for a medical school or CASPer.
How do you help with building a list of schools?
Our Admissions Consultants have a deep knowledge of the wide range of medical schools and have years of experience using resources to gauge what it takes to earn acceptances at these schools. Your consultant will help you nail down your list(s) and create a game plan for applying to your safety schools vs. reach schools.
Can I defer my payment or pay in increments over time?
Yes! At the checkout page, you can select Pay Over Time. Many students who are looking to avoid paying upfront really enjoy this Pay in Four option. It allows you to get started on any premium package for only 25% paid up front. This payment plan will automatically charge the outstanding balance in 25% increments monthly (30 days, 60 days, and 90 days), and it’s completely interest free!
How does interview preparation work?
You will begin with a roughly 30-minute mock interview with your consultant. Your consultant provides feedback and suggestions for improvement and will follow up with tips about the interview process. Your consultant will also examine your answers to questions, assess speaking style, possible nervous reactions, content of your answers based on your specific background, and get you comfortable with a variety of interview questions.
How does essay editing work?
For your personal statement, you can elect to make your first session focused on going through your life story to begin brainstorming the perfect essay. After drafting your essay, you will be able to walk through it with, and have it revised by your consultant. Every medical school applicant has multiple people reading their personal statements, and they often get conflicting information on how to improve their writing. Before submitting your AMCAS or AACOMAS application, it is important that your personal statement will have been thoroughly polished by an Admissions Consultant who has had direct experience working with top-notch candidates.
Is there any way to meet in person with my consultant?
All of our Admissions Consulting sessions are conducted online, and our students find this to be just as effective, if not more effective, than meeting in person. Students really enjoy the fact that they can visit with their tutor without having to ever leave their apartment!
How often will I meet with my consultant? How does scheduling a session work?
The great thing about our program is that it offers you the flexibility to work at your own pace and on your own schedule. You do not need to meet with your consultant at the same time every week for a set number of weeks. You are able to choose any available consulting slot from your consultant’s calendar, whether that slot is two months from now or two days from now. You choose the time that works for you! Students love having this flexibility.
How do I start meeting with an Admissions Consultant?

After that, you can schedule a your first session at your convenience so that you can discuss your needs with one of our Elite Admissions Consultants in a one-on-one setting.
