Other Services

Discovery Advising

Over the course of two appointments, we cover applicant background, short-term goals, long-term goals, academic profile, research, community service, clinical experiences, additional experiences, timeline for applying, MCAT timing, AAMC’s core competencies, readiness to apply, reflection on why you are interested in medicine/what influences your decision to go into medicine, and what makes you a compelling applicant. After these two appointments, I will suggest an action plan for moving forward over the next months and/or years.

Personal Statement

Over the course of three appointments, I’ll take you through the elements of a strong personal statement, you’ll begin writing, and I’ll edit/review two of your personal statement drafts.

Reapplicant Advising

Over the course of two appointments, we discuss your previous application, including experiences at the time of the initial application and any outcomes from the application cycle. After I fully review and summarize your application, we'll focus on strategizing areas of improvement needed for a successful reapplication and your reapplication timeline.

Post-bac Advising

During this appointment, I'll teach you the different types of post-bac programs, we'll discuss good programs to consider, and we'll determine your post-bac application timeline. We'll also discuss your readiness to apply to medical schools, to ensure you are getting relevant experiences in your bridge/gap year(s).

Individual Advising

Let's chat about whatever you want. Topics can include anything pertaining to advising and the application process, including topics mentioned in the packages, pre-med coursework, how to find clinical experiences, studying abroad, and more.
