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
We bet you're thinking, "Well they sound good, but what do their clients say?" Do Accepted's consultants really improve client essays and boost their chances of acceptance?
See what our clients say here! They're not shy about sharing their feedback, and neither are we!
I want to start by giving an overall review of Carol. She was instrumental in my PA schools applications. She went so far above and beyond to provide me with support during both of my application processes. I hired Carol to edit my essays, but she did so much more than that. She called the programs to which I was applying to obtain more information and save me from seeming like an annoyance to them, she had several lengthy phone conversations with me to discuss my progress, and she made me feel like I was her only client when I know she had many others. On top of that, Carol is hilarious and I loved conversing with her. I did not get accepted to PA after applying for the first time, but that was due to my low GPA, not because of my application. After this cycle of rejection, Carol spent an extensive amount of time coaching me on what I could improve upon, for which I am forever grateful. She taught me so many tips and tricks about the application process that I never would have known had I not sought Accepted's help. Carol enlightened me about so many nuances of my application and of the application process as a whole. Because of Carol's guidance, I was truly proud of the applications I submitted.
On a macro level, Carol's editing is superb. Her cogent advice and her extensive knowledge of the healthcare (med, PA, nursing school) admissions processes lent themselves greatly to my essays. She knew what aspects of my background I should highlight and taught me how to paint a positive light on the less-than-stellar aspects of my application. I would rate her a 10/10. On a micro level, her editing helped me immensely. My writing has a tendency to be verbose and unclear, and Carol helped me to be more concise and to the point. When it comes to cutting down the character count of an essay she is a wizard! Her micro editing was also a 10/10.
The service I have received from Accepted has been exceptional. I would rate it a 10/10 for sure! There were only a few times when Carol was not able to keep to the 2 day turn around commitment, but in those instances she would always communicate with me and let me know when she expected to have it completed.
Carol's ability to give constructive criticism is quite possibly her strongest attribute. She was able to tell me exactly what was wrong without sugar-coating it and I greatly appreciated that. She is direct, yet still polite and considerate, not to mention she has a great sense of humor! She provided support, made her self available for questions or concerns at nearly all hours of the day and evening, and never stopped giving words of encouragement.
The only aspect of Carol/Accepted's service that has room for improvement would be the 2 day turnaround. Carol almost always abided by the 2 day turnaround, but there were a handful of times when it took longer.
On a scale of 0-10 I would absolutely rate Accepted a 10. I have and will continue to recommend Accepted and Carol to people.

Barry has been instrumental in guiding me towards my acceptance [to UCLA Dental School]. I'm very appreciative of Barry and the Accepted team!
I entered a late admissions process, was up against a tight deadline, and [Cydney Foote] picked up my need and ran with it. Not only did she help me meet my deadline, but she did so with panache. Her assistance in giving shape and beauty to my story made me a strong candidate, for which I am very grateful.
Cydney’s editing was concise and accurate. Her ability to rephrase and reorganize words made them more effective and impactful, making my paper a strong statement that contributed toward my admission process. .
I think you (Accepted) and Cydney are fantastic. I have dealt with several services during these last few months (writing a new resume, then gearing up for application to a medical school) and Cydney is by far the best I have found since 2009.
Cydney is a 10/10 in her professionalism and expertise on the subject matter. Her communication was without reproach. I would recommend her to anyone needing a reliable, intelligent, pragmatic, and straightforward individual for assignment completion..
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!
Hello Dr. Suzi, In summary, my cycle was very good with 25 primary applications, 25 secondary applications, 7 interviews, and 5 acceptances [and 1 partial scholarship], a 100% post-interview acceptance rate, thanks to you! I look forward to sending you pictures of my white coat ceremony.
