A lot of colleges and universities have pre residency advisors and additional resources for pre residency students, but the following structural issues are very prevalent:
We help bridge some of these gaps that exist in today’s pre residency advising infrastructure. You can think of us as a more informed, customized, and in-depth pre residency advising 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 across 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 USMLE/COMLEX score and engaging the right recommenders at the right time.
You might be among the 36% of USMLE/COMLEX 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 any more. A structured Pre Residency Advising plan 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 Graduate Coach based on your experience, interests, and goals. Our team of Coaches comprises of physicians, graduates of top medical schools, and former admissions committee members who know what a top med school looks for.
For our Pre Residency Advising service to be effective, it is important that your Graduate Coach 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 our 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.
