Thank you so much for the warm congrats! I could not have accomplished this without Dr. Barry and Accepted. I really enjoy working with you all. I will keep you updated on my progress.
- Accepted to MPH programs at the University of Michigan and UNC.
I began working with Dr. Rothman through Accepted after two unsuccessful attempts at applying to M.D. schools. I had little hope or confidence, but after working with Dr. Rothman I saw a dramatic change in how medical schools were viewing my application; I even landed an interview at a school I thought was huge stretch! Most importantly, Dr. Rothman became more than just a personal statement advisor in a formal manner, but rather, became a mentor for my whole application as well as in handling the stress of interviews and bad news. He really enjoys getting to know students and took the time to go over much of my life story to find inspiration for personal statements and essays. Using his feedback in crafting my essays and my interview responses, Dr. Rothman became an essential part of maturing my application and myself this cycle. I would highly recommend Dr. Rothman as an application advisor from Accepted. - Chris
Barry helped me tremendously with my interviews for dental school. I was very nervous about it going in, but with multiple video calls, Barry coached me through different questions and gave me great advice. He is very kind, patient, and has a lot of experience with this, so I felt I was in good hands. I would not have been able to have such a successful interview without him!
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!
