Ben graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Science with departmental honors in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. As an undergraduate he completed three years of bench research and volunteered at a free clinic for uninsured and economically disadvantaged patients. After taking a year off to complete his research (and fit in some travel), he was accepted to four top-ten medical schools and chose to attend Stanford University, where he was awarded a medical scholars research grant and served on curriculum advisory committees. He is now completing his residency in otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat surgery) at the NYU School of Medicine, where he continues to be involved with curriculum planning and residency admissions.

Dr. Rafii served on the admissions committee at Stanford Medical School and at NYU ENT

Accepted to my #1 choice! and I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much for helping me throughout this long process (almost one year)! You truly made me the best applicant I could be from writing update letters to get off the waitlist last year, to writing a new personal statement and editing my entire application, to finding more volunteering opportunities, to getting a research job, secondary essays, and interview prep! Words can not express how thankful I am to have had you as my MedSchoolCoach. I really could not have done it without you. Thanks for being so patient with me and always ready to give me a pep talk and making me believe that this was all possible. I wanted to tell you all this over the phone, but I would have gotten too emotional and started crying because of how amazing you are and how you played such an integral role in helping me achieve my dream. So instead I am crying tears of appreciation and joy while I write this email 🙂
