Student Reviews

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.

Post Graduate:

Dr. Rodriguez is an avid fan of science fiction in all forms (movies, books, etc.). She is now attempting to create a major garden (edible and non-edible plants), something she loves to do, but hasn't quite mastered yet.
