Words cannot describe the impact that Alicia made on my medical school applications. Being a non-traditional student, I didn’t have access to a traditional pre med advisor and for much of my application process, I relied on things that I read on the internet as well as anecdotal advice from others. When I began working with Alicia, she essentially became my pre med advisor. From my personal statement, to secondary applications, and eventually interviews - I was able to conquer each hurdle of the medical school application process with new gained insights and confidence as I worked with Alicia.
Unlike others from whom I had sought help from, Alicia was able to connect with me and understand my unique perspective being an older, non-traditional applicant. She helped me find my voice - which was now one that demonstrated confidence and readiness for the rigors of a medical school education. She helped me focus my responses on my secondary application prompts and made sure I highlighted my most unique qualities and strengths. This continued during our Skype sessions once I had been offered interviews. The techniques that Alicia taught me during our mock interview sessions were incredible, and I will continue to use these throughout my life.
I have no doubt that if it weren’t for the expert advice I received from Alicia, I would not have been successful in my journey to medical school. All in all, I was accepted to 5 medical schools including my top choice and am forever grateful of the truly incredible guidance and help that I received from Alicia.
