I was an unsuccessful pre-dental student for a long time. Last year, I found Dr. Barry Rothman on Accepted.com. I chose to work with him because the reviews of Dr. Rothman were appealing to me - high acceptance rate after working with him, and his personality.
Dr. Rothman communicated with me very well via email, phone and Skype throughout the whole application process. I don't know when he sleeps, but I was able to reach him whenever I needed his help or advice. Before we got started, Dr. Rothman asked me series of questions and tried to get to know me as a person, which would help Dr. Rothman help me edit my essays and come up with personalized answers for expected interview questions. Through this preparation process, he even found strengths of mine that I wasn't aware of. Seeing myself the way a reader or interviewer would see me (third person point of view) really helped!
Dr. Rothman helped me improve my personal statement, disadvantage statement, and several supplemental essays. His edits were wonderful, and they didn't sound generic. It was because he knew me so well before he edited my essay, so he could edit them in my point of view.
Dr. Rothman's mock interview sessions were also really helpful. He told me what I should say and what not to say. He corrected my bad habits. Every answer for each question was personalized. He asked me to do an extra no-cost mock interview after one session to make sure my interview skills were strong. I could see his sincerity. He brought out the best of me, and I made it through this overwhelming process with a dental school admission. Dr. Rothman is very professional, and I would definitely recommend Dr. Rothman to anyone who is motivated and seeking help on dental school applications and interviews.
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how my interview at Penn went last Friday. I felt very confident coming out of it and received strong, positive feedback from my interviewers.
Your advice ... was very helpful and I think a big reason why my faculty interview went so well.
Thank you for your exceptional insight and guidance throughout the application process. I am happy to say that I have been accepted at my top choice medical school, OHSU. This means the world to me. Not only because OHSU’s program aligns perfectly with my future plans, but it will allow me to live closer to my family for the next four years.
I truly appreciated your time and assistance. You challenged me to answer difficult questions about myself and helped me to pinpoint the genuine reasons for why I am pursuing a career in medicine. Your thoughtful edits and suggestions taught me how to communicate my story in a sincere and effective way. Overall, you helped to improve my self awareness and confidence in the journey ahead.
When it came time for interviews, you identified my weaknesses and were open and honest with me about them. You encouraged me to use less black and white thinking, to look at things from different perspectives, and provided me with effective solutions for dealing with my interview day stress. As a result, I walked into my MMI’s feeling composed and confident.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with and getting to know you... I know who to call when if comes time for residency applications :)
Dr. Neuman! This is absolutely impressive. I am overly amazed. I cannot be happier today!!!! The tone of my text sounds personal, professional, consequential and so true. Your work is spectacular. Thank you so much in adding that excitement that I felt but could not convey in my text. Now I realize that there is nothing better that having the perspective and skill of a physician added to your work. I say this because I had paid another editing service help me shorten and correct my personal statement. I do not complain much about their work but my text became a bit raw and blunt. I am not that straight forward person and was not 100% sure how good was too sound a bit more romantic. You could read what I wanted and I am so thankful for your great work!
Thank you again and I do wish an amazing thanksgiving week Dr. Neuman. Thank you!!!!
It was amazing working with Dr. Rothman. He helped me with my personal statement and the interview process. He was there for me every step of the way. Am sure he was working with other clients, but he made me feel like I was the only one; I never felt rushed. Dr. Rothman made sure I could access him through phone, email and skype. He used writing prompts that made me think long and hard about not only my educational and professional background but also my whole life; this helped me bring out my strengths. Dr. Rothman professionally edited the PS while making sure my voice was present. During the interview session, he made sure I practiced on how to connect with a panel and well as other interviewees and how to appear engaged. I worked on how to pace myself and pause before answering the questions. I can tell you I was over-prepared me for the interview. I was invited for an interview and by the time I left the school I knew I had nailed it! The time I spent with him was invaluable. Thank you Dr. Rothman for making me look good on paper and in-person.
Dr Rothman was incredible--we could not have asked for a better advisor to work with. He was kind, considerate, went beyond what we could've ever imagined. His impact on our daughter will be felt for years to come. I'd highly recommend him to ANYONE looking for assistance with this process.
Dr Rothman corresponded with our daughter through email & skype. Anytime she had a question, he quickly responded and pointed her in the direction she needed. He worked throughout the weekend before their Skype call, even on a tight deadline to help her. His feedback gave her the confidence she so desperately needed as she walked into her interview. His ability to discern her weaknesses and season them with grace and kindness made a lasting impression. Our daughter is so thankful for the time she spent with Dr Rothman.
Dr Rothman was able to teach our daughter how to pace the interview & make a connection with each interviewer. He was able to help her see how to improve and grow in her capacity as a potential medical school student. He was always positive and framed her needs in consideration. I have a son who needs some interview assistance, and am considering asking Dr Rothman to work with him as well.
Fantastic experience! this service truly was a godsend!
