Frequently asked questions

Your advisor will be an actual physician who has experience working with hundreds of students through the application process.

We focus on one thing and one thing only - making premeds into physicians. We have been doing this since 2007 with incredible success rates. In that time, we have seen dozens of companies come and go claiming to be admissions experts - none has the track record of success that MedSchoolCoach does. Our coaches are actual physicians who have admissions committee experience, not medical students or guidance counselors who know little about medicine.

Yes, you may either add on any a la carte services or upgrade to another package at any time.

Yes, you’re welcome to request an advisor and we will do our best to accommodate based on availability.

You’ll work directly with your advisor to schedule a time. Most advisors meet nights and weekends.

Yes, parents may be involved in the process.

Every MedSchoolCoach advisor is equally well-qualified, however, our Master Advisors have a special designation because they have exceptional experience and qualifications. Each has helped hundreds of students get into medical school and is consistently rated perfectly by our students. Many students request working with our Master Advisors because of their reputation and expertise, therefore our cost structure reflects this.
