Medical School Secondary Help - Application Editing Advisors

Secondary Editing


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.

100 MCAT Study Tips


Latest Reviews

Our students love working with us; take a look at some of the latest reviews of our services

My experience with med school coach has been really great and most importantly, stress free. I was initially studying for the MCAT on my own. Personally, I found this to be very stressful as I wasn’t sure how I should allocate my time and everyone I talked to had their own opinion on the best approach. When I started with my tutor, we created a schedule for a set curriculum together. This took away any guess work and eased anxiety, I just had to do what I was told by a 100th percentile scorer. The curriculum is straight forward but having someone there to discuss things with is a huge help. Setting up my account and adding hours to it as I went was extremely easy and convenient. All the people I had contact with were fantastic, helpful, and genuine. I would highly recommend this to others that are studying for the test. If it can minimize stress for others like it did for me, I think that at least makes it close to being worth the cost right away.

It is a great tool to prep for Step 1. It was very helpful that my tutor would go over the wrong answers with me after each NBME test and explain concepts that wasn’t clear to me. It is also a very good psychological support to have from the person who went through the same experience.

MedSchool Coach is probably the best decision I made as a medical student. Amidst our busy schedules, sometimes we need a little help planning/setting a study plan or extra lessons on difficult concepts that require multiple reviews to nail down. This was the best compendium to my clinical rotations and worth every penny given my success on shelf exams and Step 2. Would highly recommend to any student struggling or with red flags to help get back on track.

Excellent Advisors

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.

Amazing MCAT Tutoring - 19 points!

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!

Will absolutely use them again!

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.
