Secondary Editing

Medical school secondary applications can be daunting. With numerous prompts, ambiguous questions, and tight deadlines, it’s 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, helping you understand what admissions committees are looking for at that stage of the medical school application process. Our Writing Advisors will then help you develop your ideas into tailored content, paying special attention how your experiences, goals, and values align with the mission and values of each medical school. After some careful editing and proofreading from your Writing Advisor and a final review by your Physician Advisor, you will have a compelling and authentic secondary application responses that will not only show how each medical school is a good fit for you, but also how you will contribute to the community on campus.
