Dr. Mehta was absolutely the best mentor I could have ever asked for. He guided me through every aspect patiently, reassuringly and always had a plan when things didn’t go as planned. In the end, everything was fantastic. I got accepted to 4 MD schools after being rejected the first time around. I can’t recommend working with him highly enough!
What can you say except he’s the absolute best. He truly changed my life (and application, of course) and put me on a path to success in my career. It’s been over 3 years since we first met, yet I still call him to ask him questions and pick his brain about all my important decisions in medicine, and even in life! I would not be where I am without him.
