What Applicants Have to Say

After reading blog post after blog post, and watching way too many videos, I realized I was wasting too much time. I needed to figure out what to say NOW. The course showed me what to highlight in my answers, it showed me how to stand out, and it got me into my top choice medical school!

If another applicant were to ask me if they should purchase this course, I would say yes!!! 


I was accepted to all five schools that interviewed me!

-MS3 (Third year medical student)

This course was exactly what I needed – it covered all the main interview questions that I was asked, and each module was to the point and showed me what I needed to do. It did two things really well: it saved me so much time, and it showed me how to stand out. I had interviews at six Texas Medical schools, and I was thrilled when I got into my top choice.

-MS1 (First year medical student

I was really, really nervous about my interview, because I only had one. My mentor told me that all you need is one: that if they’re interviewing you, they’re seriously considering you, but that I would need to do a better job during the interview than anyone else. One of the upperclassmen, who is now a first year medical student, had taken this course and said that it helped her so much, so I followed her advice. I went through every module. I reflected on my activities, and I researched the school deeper than I would have imagined possible. I almost couldn’t believe it when I got in, but I’m going to be a doctor in just two more years!

-MS2 (Second year medical student)

Getting an interview at a top 10 medical school was exciting, but also scary. I know every student interviewing there is pretty great, and how could I convince them to choose me? This course showed me how to structure my answers and especially how to emphasize that I was a great fit for their school. I don’t think I would’ve researched the school as deeply if I didn’t understand how important it was from the course. Doing that research helped me create answers that emphasized how I was the perfect student for their school. I'm excited to announce that I will be starting there this summer.

  • MMI: A resident presents a case and includes a physical exam finding that wasn't done: what would you do?

  • How long will it take to go through the course?
    It really depends on where you are currently in terms of preparation. Some of our students have completed the course in 1 to 2 weeks of focused work. For students who have already written multiple secondary essays, that work will help speed up the interview preparation process significantly. Another key factor is how many medical schools you will be interviewing with. One key focus of our course is that the best interview responses are those that are targeted to the particular medical school. Multiple medical schools means more time spent researching each school.
  • How was the course created?
    Dr. Rajani Katta and Dr. Samir Desai have been medical school faculty for over 20 years and they've written multiple best-selling books in medical education. Using their direct experience interviewing and advising applicants, they created this course to help students quickly and confidently prepare for their interviews. The course, with videos, allowed them to expand on the information found in their books.
  • Should I do the course or the coaching?
    Some of our students have completed the course and then decided they could use additional help. Coaching can help identify themes and achievements that would be compelling to an admissions committee. Coaching can also help applicants reduce anxiety and provide important feedback. Having said that, most of our students feel extremely prepared having gone through the course, and most of our students do not require any additional coaching.
  • Can I share the course?
    The course is priced for a single user only. Please feel free to share our many free helpful resources, which includes our multiple articles, blog posts, and podcast episodes. However, as this course is priced for a single user only, we rely on our students to abide by this policy. As medical school faculty, we trust that our students, as future physicians, will exhibit the same level of integrity that we expect from physicians.
  • What if this course isn't for me?
    No worries! We offer a full money-back guarantee on your purchase within seven days.
