Many colleges and universities have pre-med advisors and additional resources for pre-med students, but the following structural issues are very prevalent:
We help bridge some of these gaps that exist in today’s pre-med advising infrastructure. You can think of us as a more informed, customized, and in-depth pre-med consulting service. Our advisors are accomplished, knowledgeable, and passionate about mentoring and guiding you. They have faced some of the same dilemmas that you are facing. Most importantly, they aren’t working with hundreds of students and can give you the personalized attention you need and deserve.
Applying to med school is akin to running a marathon. Doing well requires a lot of upfront preparation. Your success on race day will be determined by the years of effort you’ve put into being prepared for race day.
Similarly, medical schools look at what you’ve done over the last few years. They want to see how you’ve grown not just as a student but also as a leader and what makes you uniquely positioned to succeed in med school.
In addition to these more variable tasks, there are must-haves, such as getting a good MCAT score and engaging the right recommenders at the right time.
You might be among the 36% of MCAT takers who have to take the test more than once. Or, you might realize that someone you thought might be your recommender isn’t a great fit anymore. Structured pre-med consulting can help you make sure you are always on top of your prep. We help you execute your plan A and create a plan B so that there are no surprises if something doesn’t go as planned.
We connect you with your advisor based on your experience, interests, and goals. Our team of pre-med consultants comprises physicians, graduates of top medical schools, and former admissions committee members who know what a top med school looks for.
For our pre-med consulting service to be effective, it is important that your advisor is able to relate to your academic experience and co-curricular interests. We make sure that we pair you with the right person after you fill out your intake form.
Attending the right med school can be life-changing. It can set you on course to get into the right residency program and, eventually, help you specialize in a field that genuinely interests you. Also, not getting into one of your top-choice schools can be extremely costly. Reapplying is stressful, and it also delays your entry into the workforce. This can easily translate to lost income of $150,000 or more, depending on your specialty.
Given that getting into the right med school is such a high-stakes decision, it is advisable to start preparing early. Our End-to-End Application Support service can help you craft an amazing application, but it cannot make you go back in time to fill potential gaps in your profile. We would recommend using this service if you want to be sure that all your i’s are dotted, and t’s are crossed before you apply to med school.
Your advisor will be the person you work with. This helps us streamline communication and make sure that you have a clear point of contact who can help you make decisions. However, there is an army of people whose expertise you can leverage.
When you start working with us, you will be assigned a Project Manager in addition to your advisor. This Project Manager will make sure that your engagement is on track at all times. They will be there if you and your advisor require any additional resources from the Inspira network.
We have a vast network of researchers, medical school admissions experts, and alumni who provide in-depth information about how med school admissions are changing and what you can do to stay relevant. You get to leverage our entire team’s expertise by gaining access to this research.
