FAQ’s for Parents:
Why should I choose Admit2Med?
Admit2Med is a small company with a personal touch. Here, what you see is what you get – literally. Miriam and/or Yael will handle every aspect of your child’s advising. We do not outsource to a nameless, faceless team. We have years of experience helping applicants and know what we are doing. Yael has worked in admissions offices; Miriam has gone through the process herself. Both have successfully advised applicants. We know what it takes to get in and the toll this process can take. When looking at other companies ask yourself who will actually be working with your child. This is an investment in your child’s future, get shortchanged by an impressive but uninvolved figurehead with a team of novice advisers.
What Services are offered?
We can help with everything from selection of an undergrad institution to interview prep to getting off a waitlist. Some of our packages can even be useful to parents who just want questions answered about what their child is in for. If you are in doubt as to what service best suits your needs, sign up for our free e-consultation.
Do you have professional writing experience?
Of course! A medical school application largely consists of essays and written documents. When written effectively these essays can really boost an applicant’s chance of success. Miriam has several peer-reviewed publications. Her articles have also been featured in print magazines and online health websites. She has even written a successful Off-Broadway play. It is this unique blend of creative and technical writing skill that has garnered success for so many of her clients.
May I buy services for my child?
Absolutely. It’s a great gift.
May I listen in on my child’s advising?
This is really up to you and your child. We welcome parental involvement but realize that sometimes children need to discuss sensitive career concerns away from their parents. Talk it over with your child and let us know what you two have agreed upon.
Can I ask you some questions about your services for my child?
Absolutely. If you have questions that were not answered here, just send us an email. We always respond promptly.
Being waitlisted at a medical school is often compared to being in limbo and most applicants would give anything to turn a medical school waitlist into an acceptance. The good news for those of you holding waitlist spots is that these lists do move and as applicants with multiple acceptances commit to one school their spots will open up for those on the waitlist. However, you should not just sit back and wait for those spots to come your way. Students who take this laid back approach will find that other students are securing those “up for grabs spots” and inactivity is costing them a place in their dream medical school.
What can you do to turn your waitlist into an acceptance? For starters you can reach out and let the medical school know you are still interested. Admissions offices often want to improve their “yield”, the percentage of accepted applicants that enroll. For this reason schools favor candidates that have expressed interest and seem likely to accept their offer. This can give you an edge over an applicant that might have better scores and references but has been lackluster in their enthusiasm about the school. There are several ways to go about this, and Admit2Med is here to help with all of them
