Secondary Editing

WHY MEDSCHOOLCOACH

Secondary applications for medical school can be daunting. With numerous essays, generic questions and deadlines, students often get stressed and bogged down during this time. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that secondaries can make or break an application.

When our physician editors help you brainstorm and edit your essays, they are putting their admissions knowledge to work for you. Our advisors know how significant the writing portion is, and as a result, work tirelessly to ensure you get the attention needed to create a masterpiece.

Frequently asked questions

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.
