Why we are different

Only physician advisors with admissions committee experience - no med students, editors, or guidance counselors. The people interviewing you are physicians so those helping you prepare should be.

Anytime, Anyone

You have complete control over who conducts your session and when. Choose from over 70 advisors with extended weekday and weekend hours.


With 12,000 students helped and over 500,000 coaching hours combined, no one has more experience helping students than we do.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, you do. We have created a simulation and mock exam that is similar to the HireViu platform which AAMC uses for the VITA exam. The sample test is created by physicians with admissions committee experience.

It's doubtful that the VITA Virtual Interview will replace an actual interview (whether a virtual interview done online, or an in-person interview once COVID risks subside). VITA will most likely be a screener to determine whether students land a real interview. Because of this, strong performance is crucial.

It's best to prepare for the exam like you would an actual interview. You should have an idea of the questions that will be asked and how you would approach them.

Yes! Our physician advisors will actually review your video answers prior and then provide you specific feedback on how you answered each question and what you could do better.

No; the test can only be taken once, just like the real VITA exam.

YES! Every advisor at MedSchoolCoach is a physician with admissions committee experience. That means the evaluation they provide will be the same type of evaluation a medical school will utilize for your VITA™ test.

The sample test is the same as the actual test with 6 questions.

Yes, we'll provide you written feedback but we'll do even better than that. You'll have verbal feedback with your physician advisor as well where he or she will provide you one-on-one coaching.

Yes, you can. You'll receive a document with links to all your videos.
