The academic year is over for most universities. "On or about June 4" you will be able to submit your application to AMCAS. Many of you are working on your AMCAS essay. And you must have questions about your chances, your strategies, and your options.
The Accepted Medical School Admissions Telethon(TM) can provide answers. During two hours on Thursday, June 12, admissions consultants will stand by to offer advice to medical school hopefuls. Candidates can speak with one of these admissions experts — FREE.
Accepted.com editors Cydney Foote and Joan Davis will be on hand during the Medical School Admissions Telethon to advise applicants on strategies for essays and secondaries, mitigating weaknesses, and even which recommenders to choose. Says Foote, “I see so many applicants who overlook the more unique aspects of their lives, instead writing the more generic stories that they think the admissions committees want to hear. They just aren’t aware of what they can do to make themselves more competitive.”
Consultants who have experience working with hundreds of medical school applicants can provide that awareness. Davis observes, "So many applicants forget that the AMCAS application requires lists of work experience, volunteer experience, research experience, etc. The essays they produce are often just expanded versions of the lists, and they share nothing of personal backgrounds which are often real attention-getters."
Foote adds that non-traditional students can especially benefit from an admissions consultant’s advice. "Applicants who don’t fit the regular cookie-cutter mold have an uphill battle. Even in a short conversation, we can share some of the proven steps that have helped past client get noticed — and accepted — by top medical schools."
The Medical School Admissions Telethon offers 2009 candidates a chance to obtain the knowledgeable advice that can help them stand out in a crowded applicant pool. And the June 12 telethon will be the last med school telethon for 2009 applicants.
