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.


Vishal is an undergraduate student at Cornell University majoring in Chemistry and Chemical Biology with minors in Global Health and Mathematics. Outside of the classroom, he conducts research on the engineering of biomolecular therapeutics and is a member of a collegiate a cappella group. In the summer of 2019, Vishal also worked on a global health research project at WaterAid in Lusaka, Zambia regarding access to water, sanitation, and hygiene in rural healthcare facilities.

Having previously been a Kumon math instructor, peer tutor, speech and debate coach, and physics teaching assistant, Vishal has a diverse background in teaching. He has learned how to work with students of all kinds and is comfortable in a wide range of subjects. He draws on these skills and his personal MCAT experience to deliver instruction that is enthusiastic, tailored, and effective. While he felt lost like most students when he began his MCAT prep, Vishal was able to achieve a high score by targeted studying and internalizing how the AAMC “thinks”. He hopes to help his students do the same so that they can maximize their success on test day!
