Medical school applications take a long time to complete. From completing the actual application and building the ultimate application narrative to completing other essays and engaging recommenders, the entire process is a marathon, not a sprint.
How much time you really need depends on several variables, including how many schools you’re applying to, your writing proficiency, and your busy schedule.
We’ve worked with clients who’ve spent two months to two years preparing their medical school applications. However, we recommend giving yourself at least three months to finalize your application and boost your chances of success.
We understand that not every Caribbean med school applicant will need help at every step of the process. We’ve broken down our all-inclusive offerings to cater to applicants needing assistance with only one or two elements of their applications.

Applying to medical school in the Caribbean differs from the U.S.; Caribbean schools typically accept applicants two or three times per cycle on a rolling basis. While you can apply to some Caribbean schools (such as St. George’s University) through AMCAS, many medical schools have their own application portals. However, many admissions requirements are the same or similar!
Medical school admissions rates are competitive in the U.S. and the Caribbean. While acceptance rates at Caribbean medical schools tend to be somewhat higher than those in the U.S., putting your best foot forward is crucial to your success; Inspira Advantage helps you maximize your chances of acceptance.
Not getting accepted to your dream school means losing months as you wait to reapply and extra effort spent enhancing your first application—this translates to lost income, opportunities, and time.
