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.


Dr. Lee graduated Cum Laude from Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH with an A.B. in Neuroscience. After college, she had a brief stint in boutique investment bank in LA and as a marketing manager in Seoul, Korea.

During her gap years, she traveled to India for a medical missions trip, which solidified her desire to go into medicine. Dr. Lee went to Penn State for medical school and was heavily involved in tutoring and mentoring fellow medical students, and undergraduate students interested in medicine.

After pursuing a transitional year internship, Dr. Lee will start her Ophthalmology residency at Yale. She has been involved in the application process as a resident.
