Admissions Consulting

We know that a great MCAT score can get your application noticed, but even a 95th percentile+ MCAT applicant has a 20% chance of not being accepted by any medical school. Without an impactful personal statement, activity essays and secondary applications, applicants won’t receive interview invites. Our admissions consulting can help with each aspect of this arduous process, giving you personalized help based on your dream schools and current application strength!

Laura

“Tim was willing to help me bright and early on a Saturday morning, as well as late in the evenings, and together not only did he help me understand how to apply, but also helped me write a well thought out personal statement. Tim took the time to explain writing and revising in ways I did not think about originally. He also guided me through multiple essay drafts until he thought it was a competitive statement. I am also grateful for Tim’s never ending support throughout my test prep and essay writing, as he was always someone who believed in me. If I could, I would choose Tim again to help me with both the MCAT and personal statement.”

Derrald

Prior to my first tutoring session, I was a plastic bag floating in the wind, being blown in all directions. Marie helped ground me and gave me direction for my personal statement. For anyone struggling with their personal statements, I highly recommend getting yourself a tutor. It is a worthwhile investment.

Deana Testimonial

Deanna

“What I liked most about Kathryn was that I felt she understood how I was feeling about the MCAT, resorting to tutoring, and how to best tutor someone with my personality. She provided me the skills and encouragement I needed to continue studying and to improve my MCAT score, and of course, we had a good few laughs in between :). Moreover, she helped me with my primary and secondary medical school applications—her writing skills are impeccable and I probably improved my writing skills more during my time being tutored by her, than I did in during my college English courses. I hope you’ll consider her as your tutor!!!””

“One of Theo’s best attributes is his selfless personality. He has always been willing to help and answer all of my questions regarding the MCAT, application, and personal statement. He is genuinely just trying to give back to the pre-med community rather than take your money. Often times, I lose my motivation and think more pessimistically about my progress than I would like, however meeting with Theo regularly has given me the motivation to push harder and stay positive.”

“Tim always had my questions answered in the portal before the tutoring session began and was very flexible with his appointment times. He has a great personality and is very easy to get along with! Tim helped me increase my score by 16 points since my previous attempt at the MCAT last year. He also tremendously helped me with my personal statement and other essays for my medical school applications. He gave me helpful advice of how to rearrange my personal statement and fixed several minor mistakes in each of my essays. Thank you, Tim!!”
