Frequently Asked Questions

MedSchoolCoach has a team of advisors who are physicians that have graduated from direct medical programs. Each of them has admissions committee experience. Our college advisors have served as admissions directors at some of the top schools in the country.

We recognize the complexity of the direct medical program application process and want our students to have the best resources possible to succeed. With direct medical programs (BA/MD, BS/MD, or BS/DO), applications are evaluated by two admissions committees. First, they are reviewed by the undergraduate admissions committees. If the student gains entry to the undergraduate institution, their application will be forwarded to the medical school’s BA/MD, BS/MD, or BS/DO admissions committees. While our physician advisors have experience on medical schools’ BA/MD, BS/MD, or BS/DO admissions committees, they do not have experience on undergraduate admissions committees. Therefore, students are also assigned a college advisor to help guide them through the undergraduate admissions process.

Our advising team works to ensure that every student is paired with the best advisor for their situation. You are free to request an advisor, and we will make every effort to accommodate. However, there are circumstances where an advisor may not be available or there may be a better advisor for your profile and questions than you’ve indicated, and our advising team will make that determination.

You will work directly with your Physician Advisor to schedule sessions that accommodate everyone’s schedules, which can include nights and weekends.

Yes, parent participation is welcome in various aspects of the process. However, particularly for Pre-Med Coach, we strongly encourage students to work with advisors independently so that they may learn new skills, such as strategic thinking, independence, and responsibility. These are the skills that medical schools look for in their applicants!

Guidance counselors can be a fantastic resource for students, however, there are a few key differences. Guidance counselors are almost never physicians, so they lack the real-world expertise of our advisors. Often, they are also tasked with guiding students broadly on every career path imaginable, so their knowledge of the specifics that medical schools are looking for can be limited. Finally, guidance counselors are often stretched thin, meeting with students for as little as 15 minutes every year, so they are unable to provide the personalized, in-depth guidance necessary for a successful application. Your personal MedSchoolCoach advisors provide custom feedback based on individual interests and needs and are always available.

The goal of our Pre-Med Coach product is to get you ready to put together a standout college application through multiple years of coaching and mentorship. The package does not include help with the actual application. However, all our Pre-Med Coach students are given a 10% discount on our admissions packages, and you will be extremely well positioned to put together a great application. Typically students will transition to an application package around January of their junior year.

Your child’s odds at admission will be best with extracurricular activities that combine their own passions and interests with scientifically relevant experiences. Their advisors will help you determine the right fit for your child.

They can communicate with you via CHART, our proprietary communications hub. They may also use phone and video conference. CHART allows for timeline management using a goal-oriented system to ensure everyone is on the same page. Parents/guardians also have their own login credentials to our comprehensive application management software platform, ensuring that they can track their child’s progress and communications with their college and physician advisors.

We have a 30-day refund policy, which allows you to meet with both your college and physician advisor to ensure that you’re satisfied with choosing MedSchoolCoach.
