Most applicants are going to be qualified for some range of medical schools. However, most people are on the bubble somewhere, meaning the next level of schools is just beyond their reach. Applicants applying to competitive programs, international applicants, weaker writers, or those who have complicating factors, weaker MCAT scores or GPAs that need to be addressed can all benefit from the guidance of a seasoned admissions professional.

After you enroll in medical school admissions consulting, you will receive a welcome email including a link to a survey. The survey inquires about your goals, target schools, and more to help us better understand your needs. We then use this information to match you with the right consultant. You will be paired with the consultant whose experience and expertise best matches your goals, target school, and level of competitiveness. Or, let us know who are your top three consultant choices and we'll be happy to match you with one of your preferred consultants.

The service is delivered remotely with your one-to-one meetings over Zoom and correspondence through email and phone. The remote delivery allows Kaplan to provide the most convenient scheduling and to match you with exactly the right consultant regardless of geography.

Kaplan’s medical school admissions consultants are so effective because of their deep experience in the field. Each consultant has served on admissions committees or as advisors—many at top medical schools—and they bring cogent insight into the admissions decision-making process. Most importantly, they understand that this process is about you presenting the best you possible. Our consultants know how essential it is to preserve and amplify your voice. They bring their expertise to bear to help you succeed.

No. Kaplan medical school admission consultants work with you to enhance your original work. They’ll help you brainstorm, polish your work, and help you position yourself for the greatest effect. But don’t forget, medical school is a very personal choice—it’s important that the schools understand who you are as a person. And Kaplan medical school admission consultants can help you do that.
