Secondary Editing

Secondary applications for medical school can be daunting. With numerous prompts, generic questions, and tight deadlines, it easy to become stressed and overwhelmed with this part of the medical school application process. However, secondaries can make or break an application. So, it is important that each secondary application showcases your authentic stories, communicates your interest in what a school has to offer, and demonstrates your knowledge of each particular medical school.

Our Physician Advisors will help you brainstorm content while our Writing Advisors will help you draft, revise, and edit, putting their admissions knowledge to work for you. They know how significant secondary applications are and as a result, work tirelessly to ensure you get the attention needed to create a masterpiece
