Medical School Admissions Advising
Work through your medical school application process with help from physicians with experience serving on admissions committees.
We're here to guide you through all aspects of the primary & secondary applications, and offer a unique mock interview service specifically geared to address the most important component of your applicant profile.
What sets 1SM Admissions apart?
All of our Admissions Advisors are MDs with experience serving on the admissions committee at one or more medical schools. They've seen the process from the opposite side of the table and are perfectly equipped to help you present the most compelling parts of your narrative in a manner consistent with adcomm preferences.
While our MD Admissions Committee members bring unparalleled expertise when it comes to determining the content of your essays and interviews, physicians aren't exactly notorious for their ability to craft eloquent narratives.
Rather than compromising on presentation, we've decided to also employ a team of professional writers to ensure your pen truly is mightier than anyone else's sword.
We know this isn't the most important aspect of the application, which is why we've opted to make this component of the process 100% complimentary!
Sit across the table or on the other side of a Zoom call from one of our adcomm members. They'll grill you with the sorts of loaded, "conversational" questions you'll get on the real day, giving you wildly accurate representation of how this most important aspect of the process is going to play out.
We'll also record the session and create a 1-hr critique of your every answer and mannerism throughout the interview. This way, you get the constructive feedback you need to improve your performance for the half-hour that will matter more than any other in your pre-medical career.
True to our overarching commitment to personalization, our Admissions Advising services recognize that because no two applicants are the same, so their application processes be either.
1SM Pricing Options:
Hourly Pay-As-You-Go Plans: Retain the flexibility to use as many or few hours as needed. With these plans, you pre-pay for a set number of hours and use them to meet or receive edits as needed. When your credits run out, we'll charge you the same, flat rate for more time. If you finish with hours left, we'll refund the remaining balance. Simple, clean, and easy.
Comprehensive Plans: Different packaging for the same great services. Rather than paying per time spent on your essays, these plans allow you to know the exact dollar amount you'll pay for each service ahead of time.
If you've worked with us for a while, you'll know we started as an MCAT prep company. In the early days, we were fortunate to partner with a couple excellent admissions-first companies to provide services for our students. Because we trust these people and the work they do, we've opted to keep referring to them as means of keeping options open for our students who might find their approaches more suitable.
BPM Advising: Work with the most highly-qualified group of medical students you can find on the internet. Contrary to our admissions team, which is replete with MD admissions committee members, the BPM team features medical students from top-tier institutions who recently crushed the med school admissions process.
Passport Admissions: The passport team offers yet another approach. While their advisors haven't directly participated in the process themselves, they have been advising students for 23 years and bring an unbelievable amount of evidence-based experience to the table.
