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 🙂
