A.T. - MedSchoolCoach Class of 2018

“I am heading off to Thomas Jefferson MD this fall! I really appreciate all your help, endless calls, PS edits, and interview practices throughout the cycle.

N.M. - MedSchoolCoach Class of 2016

Nikhil K – Texas A&M Medical School

Nikhil K

Texas A&M Medical School

Nikhil K is a 2018 graduate of the University of Texas, with a degree in Biology and Criminology. He was a re-applicant to medical school and worked with Dr. Ryan Gillihan as his MedSchoolCoach advisor. Nikhil’s advice for applicants is to believe in yourself and trust that everything will work out.

“Just because you don’t get in the first time you apply does not mean you are not good enough, and it should just be motivation to improve yourself and present yourself better to show the schools that they should not pass up on you. My advisor helped me relax through the stressful process and gave me the confidence I needed to make sure that I did well.’

Nikhil was recently accepted to Texas A&M Medical School. Before he starts medical school in the Fall, he plans to relax and spend time with friends and loved ones. He also plans to take a vacation to India.

Stephanie and Jonah – Rush Medical School in Chicago

Stephanie and Jonah

Rush Medical School in Chicago

When Jonah and Stephanie came to MedSchoolCoach, they both had dreams of attending medical school. As a couple, they knew they wanted to at least be in the same city if not the same school. Both are graduates of the University of Colorado, Boulder and worked with their advisor, Dr. Aubrey Jordan, extensively through the application cycle.

This month, we were so excited to learn that they were both accepted into their first choice – Rush Medical School in Chicago!

“Through the supportive and collaborative assistance we received from our MedSchoolCoach advisor, we are ecstatic to have been accepted to Numerous allopathic medical programs and will be matriculating into our dream school in several months! We plan to spend the upcoming months Continuing our work at a local non-profit and enjoy our beautiful state parks. The advice that we would give to those looking to apply this cycle is not to allow any perceived odds discourage you from pursuing your dreams. May the odds be ever in your favor!”

We are thrilled to have been a part of the process for Stephanie and Jonah, and wish them all the best in the windy city!

Mary C - MedSchoolCoach Review

Mary C

University of San Diego School of Medicine

Mary was a part of the 2015-2016 application cycle after taking 2 gap years to work. She was overwhelmed about the process about applying to medical school and needed special attention on secondaries. In the end she signed up for our Complete Silver Package and is now on her way to UCSD in the fall!

MedSchoolCoach video Priya S review

Priya S

University of Michigan

The advisors at MedSchoolCoach were supportive every step of the way. Dr. Korgavkar was really helpful as I filled out my application and wrote my Personal Statement, and then secondaries. Writing for medical school applications is an art and takes a certain level of skill, and I feel that she really helped me develop that. She was also really encouraging during the waiting process and continued to give great advice as I interviewed. She was always prompt and easily available, and did a great job of both providing me with more information and with giving me pep talks and reassurance.

Sarah, University of Rochester


University of Rochester

I no longer had close access to a premed advisor while I was going through the process because I took two gap years. In addition, my GPA or MCAT were neither terrible nor great, so I wanted to have an extra edge to get into medical school the first time. MedSchoolCoach had extensive individual advising from physicians with admissions committee experience. I really appreciate the thorough job my advisor (Alice) did in reading my essays. On secondaries, Alice’s tips helped me get all the interviews I got.

Sandeep J

Vanderbilt University

With an Ivy League undergraduate degree, a great MCAT score and good grades, he thought he was a shoe in for an acceptance. Unfortunately, it didn’t go that way his first time around. Sandeep came to us as a reapplicant and with our help got into his #1 choice school the second year around!
