Dr. Barry Rothman was a terrific guide and mentor throughout my postbac application process. He pushed me to dig deeper and be more vulnerable with my personal statements, resulting in a much more compelling set of essays. After spending some time working on his writing prompts — some standard, some tailored to my specific scenario — we had a brief discussion to identify the most engaging parts of my story, and I was off to write. I found the process both enjoyable and challenging (but never overwhelming!), and Dr. Rothman was a great cheerleader and ally. By the time I was done with the process, I had a much better understanding of why I wanted to be a doctor in the first place and was able to articulate that motivation during my interviews.
It is a considerable expense to hire a coach to help through the application process, and in this case I found it was well worth it. My work with Dr. Rothman provided peace of mind that I was presenting my most authentic self as well as an extra degree of polish that made my application stand out. I recommend him!

Alicia was fantastic to work with over the past year. She provided insightful connections with my past experiences to help me craft the perfect personal statement and application guiding me through the whole process. Now a year later [Oct. 15] I have gained acceptance to medical school and could not be more excited. Thank you!
Before I met Jen, I was very worried about my chances at a top MBA. After contacting Accepted, Jen reached out to me within one business day and was extremely courteous and helpful with how to deal with my concerns as well as ways to mitigate/address them in the MBA application. More importantly, she really took the time to to understand my situation as well making sure that I have the right approach to addressing these concerns I had. She is not only knowledgeable and experienced, but very personable and friendly as well. I will certainly stay in touch with her, and I have no doubt that she will continue to provide an excellent consultation service to her clients. I highly recommend anyone who has questions regarding MBA admissions to reach out to her.
I got accepted to Temple with a XXXX scholarship! I've just submitted my deposit and will be attending there starting next Fall. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you've done and the invaluable guidance that you've provided! I honestly couldn't have gotten an acceptance without your help. Thank you so much again and I will keep you posted as to how things go in the future! Please let me know when you are free to talk this week, I just want to call and thank you personally.

It was an honor working with Alicia! I worked with Alicia from the very beginning of the application process and she helped with every aspect of it. After discussing my strengths and weaknesses, Alicia realized what the best strategy was for me. She helped me write an extremely strong personal statement, which highlighted all of my strengths. She brought to light so many strengths I should emphasize that I didn't even realize I had. She had a unique perspective and approach that I couldn't have come up with on my own! I completely threw out my previous personal statement and created a new one because Alicia knew all of the right questions to ask!
Alicia helped me to polish my experiences and activities. She also helped me to perfect my interview skills! She gave me consistent and timely feedback. I always felt like Alicia was genuinely concerned with helping guide me throughout the entire application process, interview, and eventual ACCEPTANCE! I highly recommend Alicia.
