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.
MedSchoolCoach provided me with a phenomenal advisor that helped me perfect my primary and secondary essays. This led me to be accepted into two allopathic medical schools and interview throughout the country. I would highly recommend!
MCAT Tutoring with MedSchoolCoach was Awesome! Coral, Connor, and Ken were amazing tutors. My score went up 19 points from my diagnostic exam (496 to a 515) working with them. I am a sociology major and took the exam a month after finishing my first semester of biology. When I set my target score to 515 I thought I was being overly optimistic and I really wasn't expecting to reach it the first go around. I purchased the platinum package and MedSchoolCoach's master tutor Ken took my target score really seriously and worked with me to build a custom study schedule to get me there. Coral was my tutor for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem sections and Connor for Psych/Soc. They were both awesome! They both had so much experience and knowledge about the exam and how things come up, and they really made sure I had everything down. Thank you guys so much for all your help!
MedSchoolCoach was an absolutely incredible service. I used them first for med school applications and I could not have been happier with the service they provided. Their counselors were responsive, and went so far out of their way to help put together the perfect application.
Extremely patient, helpful, insightful, and cooperative individuals. Truly have helped make my medical school application more competitive and I am more confident in not only my application and myself. Small investment for help from great people!
