Frequently Asked Questions

Baccalaureate-MD programs have competitive acceptance rates, taking only 1-10% of students who apply. BS/MD programs are often more selective than an ivy league medical education, even with superb test scores and a high GPA. That’s why it’s so important to work with experienced admissions experts who specialize in helping students studying healthcare professions. Combine targeted advising at MedSchoolCoach with your fantastic GPA and SAT or ACT score, and your chances at being accepted will skyrocket.

Most high school students should apply to 10 or more direct medical programs in addition to 5 or more undergrad programs. This will increase your chances at one or more acceptances.

MedSchoolCoach has a team of advisors who are physicians that have graduated from direct medical programs (BA/MD or BS/MD). 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 an college advisor to help guide them through the undergraduate admissions process.

We specialize in helping students who want to become physicians, and we are specialists in any direct medical program. Whether you are looking to apply to a BS/MD, BA/MD or combined DO program, you will not find a better fit than MedSchoolCoach.

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 phone, email, and video conference. We also have a comprehensive application management software platform, allowing 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 believe in providing comprehensive assistance to our students. We spend the time needed to make sure your application is great.

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.
