applicants to medical school navigate the MD and/or DO admissions process.
work with clients who don't live in California?
80% of my clients are distance clients. We work by phone and email (I
call you in order to keep your costs down). If I happen to be in your
area, or you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, I'll certainly try to
meet you so that we may get to know each other face-to-face.
you cover in a mock interview?
tips about the interview process; we also examine your answers to questions,
assess speaking style, possible nervous reactions, content of your answers
based on your specific background, and we get you comfortable with a
variety of interview questions.
know what some of the interview questions will be
why do I need to
do a mock interview?
an idea about a few of the questions is one thing. Being comfortable
speaking your answers to someone else is entirely different, particularly
to someone who has first-hand experience with the admissions process.
Do I need
to do a mock interview with you?
do a mock interview with anyone who is familiar with the medical school
interview process and knows "what to look for" when evaluating you.
you have a "package fee" as many other educational consultants have?
my experience, most of my clients don't need to spend $3,000+ for a consulting
"package." We are efficient together and often get our work accomplished
for far less. In the past three years, only seven clients have spent
more than $2,000. You shouldn't have to pay for time you don't need
just to make my bookkeeping easier.
fee structure is explained in detail.
hours do I need to commit to?
$400/hr., paid in advance for our first session. Work after that is
pro-rated at the same hourly rate.
I use PayPal?
a PayPal link on my web page so that
you may do this easily.
people work in your office?
background is extensive and unique, and therefore I don't have an office
staff to whom I hand off clients after an initial discussion as other
consulting services might. I am the sole proprietor of my consulting
business. When necessary I limit the number of clients in order to give
each of you personalized service, as it is important that you benefit
from my experience and knowledge-base rather from an assistant who may
not have it. It's my way of assuring quality control.
you clients doing?
you can see from the "Congratulations"
link, my clients are doing well.
is your Congratulations web page?
a client lets me know about an interview or an acceptance, I update
the web page. However, some clients drift away after the first or second
session and don't keep me apprised of his/her status. My web page is
only as accurate as my clients help me make it.
