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.

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.
