OK, let’s pretend you’ve sent your application in and now you’re nervously waiting for a response. Could this have been less stressful? Is there something you could’ve done to have some idea if you’re going to be accepted or not?
Every year, pre-med students go through a nervous panic. You get overwhelmed because of finals, grades, volunteer, research, test prep … juggling everything is a nightmare. not to mention completing the application itself!
How would you feel if you had some advanced insights into how medical school admissions officers will react to your application? Are your stats, experiences and other components of your application going to be well received?
It would be great if you could ask a trusted adcom member to review your application and give you some feedback BEFORE you submitted it. After all, the success or failure of your application is going to have a major impact on your personal and professional life.
After looking around, I couldn’t really find much support for students who want to get an early assessment of their chances. So I created “What Are My Chances?” — a free video-based assessment that will show you how med school admissions officers think about you, and what you can do to make yourself a better candidate.
How It Works
Your first step is to download and complete a brief self-assessment document. You will receive a score which will tell you just what areas you need to improve on in order to be a stronger candidate.
- Step #1: Print out the self-assessment and calculate your score.
- Step #2: Compare your score in the scoring table.
- Step #2: Watch the 30 videos detailing each aspect of the application process and how to strengthen your faults.
The videos themselves are the meat and bones of this course, so to speak. They cover all of the many questions I have received over the years and detail how to best express yourself on these standardized apps. Some of the most pressing topics include:
- Personal Statements
- Letters of Recommendation
- “What Are Your Chances?”
- “Are My Test Scores Good Enough?”
- … and so on.
With 30 videos, I go in detail on the application and what common traps you can fall into within the application. In order to be a successful candidate and get into that dream school of yours, you need to demonstrate you are competent across the board. My videos break each area down and make sure you can do this effectively.
Some Final Thoughts
The self-assessment is a way to gauge if you’ll get into the school you want and what you need to do get in. This is one of the most important aspects of the entire medical school admissions process and your application needs to be in its best form.
