BA/BS – MD Program
The BA/BS-MD program is a way for an applicant to earn a BA/BS degree, then upon graduation, automatically be accepted to the medical school associated with the institution for their MD. Without the stress of taking the MCAT, a BA/BS-MD is a straight shot to medical school. Without question, more is asked of an applicant to these competitive and challenging programs. An applicant is expected to have lived a full life of academic pursuits, extracurricular interests, and internship and summer experiences with which to draw from and write about on all of those required essays. Here’s how we work:
- Via telephone or video chat, we will discuss the Common Application essay prompts to determine if the applicant is drawn to one over the others. If they are still struggling to choose a prompt, we will come at this from a different direction by discussing who the applicant is inside and outside school, their life experiences, searching for what makes them exceptional. Once we discover their story, we teach them how to create a structure for the essay, which the applicant will then use to write a first draft.
- When we receive first draft we will discuss what works and what doesn’t. The applicant uses our notes and suggestions to write another draft.
- Next up is one more review of their draft. This is where we point out mistakes or errors the applicant has made.
Next, we move onto the BA/BS-MD supplement essays for each school, working the same way we did with the personal statement.
Persuasive BA/BS-MD essays tell admission officers what your grades and test scores simply cannot. Who you are – what kind of college/medical school student you will be – what is unique and exceptional about you – this is what must be emphasized! How are you exceptional? What makes you their ideal candidate? Why should they accept you? We have the knowledge and experience to help you answer those questions, and get accepted!
