My experience with AcceptMed was overall really great! Zujaja's warm demeanor instantly put me at ease, especially since I was a little nervous doing a mock interview over video call (something I'd never done before). She was both supportive and insightful when giving feedback in our mock MMI, and the quality of feedback and discussion I had with Read more about review stating Great support for interview preparationher far surpassed that which I had received from any college advisor. In conducting our mock MMI, she was very flexible and tailored the MMI to my preferences by asking both traditional and situational/ethical questions. She also had great follow-up questions/push-back to my responses that made me think more deeply about the ethical issues at hand. I would definitely recommend AcceptMed and Zujaja to anyone who would like some constructive feedback and a boost of confidence going into interview day!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Want to know what admissions committees want to see? If you actually listen and take his suggestions, your application will be on another level.

Honestly, this was a great experience. I looked into a lot of companies and was honestly very skeptical about hiring consulting but it was a really positive experience and I got good feedback that I haven’t gotten from anyone else (and I've asked other premed students, other med school students, as well as premed advising at my university). Ryan iRead more about review stating Ryan REALLY cares about his studentss also incredibly knowledgeable and paid a lot of attention to the details of my application. Admittedly I was really skeptical with his idea for how to change my essay because I did not think I could fit so much content in the character count but he really worked with me and despite only using 2 edits for my personal statement, I definitely think it came out better. He also responded very quickly to email and was proactive about helping me. It felt like he really cared about me and helping me make the best of my application.
As a reapplicant I was worried about not getting into schools again and was hesitant to use a consulting service. Looking back on it, I am so glad I did now with 4 MD acceptances including my top choice. Dr. K helped me find out what went wrong during my last cycle and make the necessary changes to my application. My stats didn't jump off the pageRead more about review stating Project Reapply: Success, but together we worked on making sure every single piece of my application was so much stronger than my last application cycle. When interviews came along, I felt much more prepared and at ease when discussing my application. You can bet I'm coming back for residency advice.
