Yes! Once you sign up for interview prep, we will send you instructions on how you can record the session.
First, you need to decide which type of residency program you want to go into. You can go into a primary care residency, which is a general practice residency, or you can go into a subspecialty residency, which is a residency in a specific field. You can also look into the location of the residency program. You may want to look into programs in certain states or cities because they may have better job opportunities. Matching into residency is really critical.
My mock interview with Dr Bholat
My mock interview with Dr. Bholat was a great experience. We covered the common interview questions as well as tougher and more personal ones, and I really appreciated Dr. Bholat's insight and feedback on my response content, my presentation, and the verbal and nonverbal aspects of my responses. She was honest, forthright, and constructive in her comments, and by the end of the session I felt confident in the things she thought I did well and well-equipped to address the tips she had for things to work on. Thank you!!
It was great to meet with Dr. Dallara
It was great to meet with Dr. Dallara for a mock interview before my residency interviews. She asked me common questions but also some that were challenging. This gave me insight of where I could improve. She also gave advice of what research to do before the interview about the different programs and their respective locations. It was an informative mock interview and I feel better prepared moving forward!
Felt like a real interview experience
The questions asked felt very real and connected to my own application and the experiences I was talking about in the mock interview. Feedback was also very helpful, addressing both the content of my answers as well as the way in which they were delivered. I didn’t realize that I frequently wasn’t looking at the camera and making “eye contact” with the interviewer. All of this learning will be really helpful when I have my actual interviews!

In my BS/MD interview prep my coach thoroughly described the types of questions asked by the program, how I should go about answering them, and then gave me a mock interview. After I answered each of her interview questions, she gave me tons of feedback and told me what I should practice. Her feedback has greatly helped me prepare for my interview.
The Best Support I could Ask For
I couldn't have asked for a better college consulting service than MedSchoolCoach. Their team of advisors went above and beyond to ensure that I was well-prepared for the application process. They provided invaluable insights and helped me build a strong school list tailored to my goals. The extensive editing of my application materials helped me put my best foot forward. I'm grateful for their support and would highly recommend them to any aspiring pre-med student.
I was a 3rd time applicant to medical school…
I was a 3rd time applicant to medical school and I didn't realize how much of a difference having a great advisor could make. Medschoolcoach really made all the difference the 3rd time - was accepted to 3 MD schools, something I never thought would have been possible! I can't say enough great things about my advisors who constantly checked in and encouraged me. Would not hesitate for a second, just wish I had used them the first time!
Dr. Lee is amazing
Dr. Lee is extremely nice and down to earth. She guided my son very patiently for almost 2 years and helped him get into BS/MD program. My son has a full ride for under graduation. This entire process was daunting. But Dr. Lee and Rob Rivas helped us through the extremely stressful application and interview process. We couldn't have done this without their help and guidance. We feel blessed to have found Dr. Lee and MedSchool coach. Thanks for everything!
An invaluable resource for OMSAS applicants
The OMSAS editing service has proven to be an invaluable resource throughout my application journey. Their team of professionals provided unparalleled guidance and support. They meticulously reviewed my application, offering insightful feedback that significantly enhanced its quality.
MedSchoolCoach has been incredibly…
MedSchoolCoach has been incredibly helpful with my personal statement and secondary essays, helping me effectively communicate my experiences and qualities. They have also been a huge help with CASPer preparation. I am glad to have them assist me every step of the way with this process!
Dr. Mandalia provided a plethora of good ideas to work into my responses that will help me strengthen my overall narrative and presentation. He noted my strengths and weaknesses and gave me many different ways to address my weaknesses. He is clearly incredibly knowledgable about what interview committees look for and was able to elaborate on these points in great detail.
The Best MCAT Tutoring Program
MedSchoolCoach has been such a great help in my MCAT studying! My tutor, Lejla, is the best! She has helped me create my own study schedule, always makes sure I understand what we review, and provides me with MCAT-style practice questions. I wish I would have found MedSchoolCoach a lot sooner. It would have made my life so much easier. I definitely would recommend this tutoring service to my friends and peers!
Med school coach made my application process much smoother
Med school coach was extremely helpful especially developing my personal statement! They helped me put my dreams into words. It was also so wonderful to have a team of support when facing the daunting secondary essays. Highly recommend!!
Non-traditional student, exciting application process.
I'm a non-traditional student, applying for a medical residency during covid. I encountered many obstacles that had me pretty demoralized at times. Dr. Blair Nelson kept my spirits up, and demystified the process, making it seem more manageable. I'm now in orientation for my residency, and I'm not sure I'd be here without his help. We still talk and I keep him updated on my progress. This service was worth every penny. Two thumbs waaay up.
Their help got me into medical school!
As a reapplicant the advice I received got me accepted! Strengthened my personal statement, secondary essays and provided much needed assistance with interview preparation. Awesome resource to have in your corner throughout the application process.
Great experience with MSC!
My experience with MSC has been nothing but great so far. I started with a consultation and was not pressured into signing up right away. When I was ready I purchased tutoring hours and my tutor has been very helpful. I also have a physician advisor and writing advisor and I am feeling confident about applying.
Exceeded all expectations, seriously the best organization I could have picked
In short, this is a first class organization. They don't just take your money and let you fend for yourself. They work with you to create a personalized plan for both how much tutoring you need as well as how to most effectively use your tutoring time. Every single minute was high-yield stuff with no wasted nonsense.
If you want to succeed and are looking for the right people to help you reach your goals, look no further. Seriously.
So helpful for Step 1!
I used MedSchool Coach to help me study for the USMLE Step 1 exam and was so thankful for their help! I highly recommend Abdul was a tutor! I was really nervous about the exam and really at a loss about how to the study before working with him. He provided a personalized approach and we systematically tackled all of my areas of weakness before the exam. After our sessions, I walked into test day feeling infinitely more confident than I would have been without his help!
