Apply with Confidence
Applying to medical school can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. On top of the long timelines, grueling tests, drop-dead deadlines, and high costs, there’s the simple fact that average MCAT scores and applicant volume at the most coveted schools is climbing. A great MCAT score and GPA—never easy to get–aren’t good enough for admission anymore. In this fiercely competitive admissions environment, your personal statement, secondary essays, recommendation letters, and interview will all be potential deal-breakers.
To guide you through this gauntlet and help you set yourself apart from the pack, you need an expert with a long history of demonstrated success to guide you. You need Paul Bodine Admissions Consulting.
Tested One-On-One Approach
One of the industry’s most successful admissions consultants (helping med school applicants since 1998), Paul Bodine will personally guide you through your med school application process, from providing you with a customized application strategy to helping you craft powerfully effective essays that get you admitted at your top-choice schools. Paul won’t hand you off to other consultants. You’ll work one on one with him to find the application themes unique to your strengths, your experiences, your personality — you.
Whether you choose to emphasize your clinical experiences, research exposure, pivotal life experiences, or some combination of them all, Paul will work with you directly to create a compelling, memorable personal statement that gives medical schools the information they need while ensuring that you never get lost in the admissions shuffle. Paul will show you how to maintain a consistent style and tone to ensure your essay connects with the admissions committee on a human level. Your statement and secondary essays will become persuasive, polished, and powerful without sacrificing any sense of your individuality.
Guidance Every Step of the Way
Paul will also show you how to obtain highly effective letters of recommendation from the people who know you (and can sing your praises) best. He’ll even work with your recommender to develop those letters for you. You’ll also gain confidence heading into the interview process, as Paul helps you refine your answers to the crucial interview questions through video, phone, or one-on-one preparation.
