As a student with lower stats, I could not believe when my first acceptance arrived, in October! I can say with ABSOLUTELY NO hesitation that I would not be sitting here today, holding multiple medical school acceptances, without Alicia's help, and the help of Accepted.com.
When we began working together, Alicia provided straightforward feedback on my application and my chances of acceptance with my previous stats and activities. She assisted me with planning my gap year and discussed how I could strengthen my application including taking post-bac courses, adding additional volunteer experiences, and gaining more clinical experience. With her advice and guidance, I was able to apply only once and be successful!
Alicia helped me prepare the perfect primary/secondary applications and improve my interview skills. She knew exactly what I was trying to say in each essay and showed me how to better focus my responses to make sure I highlighted each of my attributes, and how these qualities fit with a program's mission statement. Additionally, she coached me through multiple mock MMI interviews and explicitly critiqued every aspect of my answers including my non-verbal communication. She taught me how to avoid "throwing red flags" during the process and showed me stress reduction techniques to further help with my interview preparation. With Alicia's help, I felt confident and prepared going into each interview and ready for any question asked.
Alicia truly cares about the wellbeing of each of her clients. Outside of the application cycle, she went above and beyond to provide emotional comfort when my family was going through a challenging time. She has become a friend to me as well as an advisor. I am grateful to have had Alicia's positive attitude, compassion, and support during the application cycle.
Working with Accepted.com is the best decision I have made on my journey to medical school. I give Alicia the highest recommendation.
