f.a.q. about our head start program
Great question! Premed advisers at colleges can often be a very good resource or many students. However, many colleges do not offer premed advisers and many others are simply too overwhelmed to be effective. Others are not physicians and have no experience at all with actual medicine – they advise students through business school, law school, etc. Each premed adviser at a college may work with 50 to 100 students, if not more.
At MedSchoolCoach, we provide in-depth one on one guidance from a physician mentor with admissions committee experience, not generic advice.
We love for our students to be independent and take charge of their own education, however we realize that parents often want to be involved too! That’s why included in our program is two one hour check in sessions with parents throughout the year!
Yes! Academic planning is a huge part of the program. Which classes to take when, how to succeed and optimizing your timing are all part of what we do.
The transition from high-school to college is huge. Our advisors can help you adapt to the new social situations you will encounter. Why? We believe that to be a successful medical school applicant you need more than just good grades. You have to develop a balanced personal life that allows you to grow as a student and person!
Yup! Your advisor will help you choose the best extracurricular activities early on in college so that when you are ready to apply to medical school there are no gaps in your application!
The current cost is $200/month. Your subscription will be billed monthly when you sign up. You must be a Freshman or first semester Sophomore in college to qualify.
Included are 6 hours of advising throughout the year (2 with parents, 4 with the student alone) plus unlimited email support whenever small questions come up! More so than the hours of advising included, you are obtaining a mentor through the entire program who can help assure your success.
