As an applicant with a low GPA, I knew applying to medical school would be challenging. Alicia was absolutely instrumental in my success of obtaining 9 MD interviews and admission to my top choice. Alicia is very knowledgeable of the entire medical school application process. She was able to answer all of my questions throughout the entire process. As a California resident, I was nervous about not being competitive enough for California schools and out of state schools. However, with her help, I received interview invitations to the University of Southern California, UC Riverside, University of Cincinnati, Oregon Health; Science University, University of Iowa, Rush University, Eastern Virginia Medical School, New York Medical College and Wayne State. I will be attending my top choice medical school! I am so grateful that I had Alicia’s support during this process.
When I was looking into applying to postbaccalaureate programs, I bought Alicia’s book on Amazon. It was very helpful and from there, I knew I wanted to work with her. I worked with Alicia from the beginning of the application process and she helped me every step of the way from offering encouragement and support during my MCAT studying to providing insightful feedback on my personal statement and mock interviews.
I specifically wanted to work with Alicia because she has worked with students with similar academic and personal backgrounds as myself. I graduated college with a low science GPA and spent a few years completing informal postbaccalaureate coursework. Alicia helped me feel confident when explaining my grades when asked about them. She also helped me focus on my positive qualities and experiences, instead of dwelling on my poor grades. I appreciate her empathetic and positive attitude during such a stressful process. She was very understanding and went above and beyond by providing strategies on how to overcome nervousness before my interviews. I also felt well prepared going into all of my interviews because of her helpful feedback after mock interviews.
I definitely recommend Alicia to anyone looking to have a successful application cycle. She has experience working with students from all backgrounds and she knows everything there is to know about the medical school application process. She is very efficient with editing and providing overall and specific feedback. I 10/10 recommend Alicia!
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!
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.
