Using your individualism, advisors work with you to brainstorm a cohesive narrative throughout your application.
Once you’ve developed a draft, advisors will then critique and enhance what you’ve created.
After a few drafts, advisors will refine and correct small imperfections standing in the way of excellence.

Our sole focus at MedSchoolCoach is medicine. Period. Because of this, we have developed unparalleled experience in everything related to medical school.

As physicians, we’ve taken the Hippocratic Oath to share what knowledge we have with those who are to follow. There’s no better promise than the one sworn by us as physicians to give the ultimate care and dedication to our students.
Want to Meet More of the Team
Your editor will be one of MedSchoolCoach’s physician editors with admissions committee experience who have extensive experience evaluating and editing essays. Other companies have “English editors” with absolutely no medical experience. Remember, our advisors are actual physicians, the same physicians who evaluate your application during the admissions process. Each is also a published author with multiple academic publications.
Yes! All our essay editing packages come with brainstorming time with your physician advisor.
We use a project management portal called Basecamp to provide essay edits. When you upload your essays, your physician advisor will review them in detail and then provide constructive feedback on how to improve them. As you get closer to a final draft, we will help with things like word choice, sentence structure and grammar.
Advisors provide feedback within 24-96 hours of submission. This allows enough time for actual in-depth edits, not simply word changes.

Traditional and MMI interview preparation by physician advisors.
On June 25 2020, the AAMC announced VITA or Video Interview Tool for Admissions. It's an initiative by the AAMC to help medical schools during the COVID-19 pandemic assess applicants without the need for traditional in-person interviews; essentially, it's a one-way virtual interview! The AAMC developed and will administer this one-time, one-way video (recorded) interview designed to help medical schools assess applicants’ pre-professional competencies important for success in medical school. How exactly the text will be utilized by medical schools is still up for debate. With the addition of the VITA, as well as the SJT (situational judgment test) and the CASPer exam, there are now multiple "pre-interview" tests that a pre-med may have to take. While the SJT is only being piloted to two schools, the VITA test will be used by many medical schools for the 2020-2021 application cycle.

I was actually hesitant when I first used MedSchoolCoach; it was a lot of money and I wasn’t sure how much help I really needed. I am so glad that I ended up using their services! My advisor (Audrey Jordan) was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
MedSchoolCoach provided me with a phenomenal advisor that helped me perfect my primary and secondary essays. This led me to be accepted into two allopathic medical schools and interview throughout the country. I would highly recommend!
MCAT Tutoring with MedSchoolCoach was Awesome! Coral, Connor, and Ken were amazing tutors. My score went up 19 points from my diagnostic exam (496 to a 515) working with them. I am a sociology major and took the exam a month after finishing my first semester of biology. When I set my target score to 515 I thought I was being overly optimistic and I really wasn’t expecting to reach it the first go around. I purchased the platinum package and MedSchoolCoach’s master tutor Ken took my target score really seriously and worked with me to build a custom study schedule to get me there. Coral was my tutor for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem sections and Connor for Psych/Soc. They were both awesome! They both had so much experience and knowledge about the exam and how things come up, and they really made sure I had everything down. Thank you guys so much for all your help!
MedSchoolCoach was an absolutely incredible service. I used them first for med school applications and I could not have been happier with the service they provided. Their counselors were responsive, and went so far out of their way to help put together the perfect application.
Extremely patient, helpful, insightful, and cooperative individuals. Truly have helped make my medical school application more competitive and I am more confident in not only my application and myself. Small investment for help from great people!
