What Students Say

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 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.


After completing a joint PhD in Linguistics and Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of Chicago, Andrew pivoted to become a non-traditional, career-changing pre-med through the UC Berkeley Extension Health Professionals Program, with a 523 MCAT score (99th percentile). Since then, Andrew has worked for 6+ years as an MCAT tutor and high-level MCAT course architect and developer, helping to design and write some of the best-selling MCAT courses and materials on the market, both at MedSchoolCoach and other companies. Andrew also keeps up with cutting-edge medical research by working as an English-language editor for several journals, and has a keen eye for connecting basic science concepts with clinical applications. As an MCAT tutor, Andrew particularly enjoys demystifying the MCAT and helping students reach their potential by studying science content as efficiently as possible and deploying effective test-taking strategies and techniques.
