Having been in business for almost a decade, we know what it costs to retain talented consultants and sustainably deliver a high quality service across the board. Despite compensating our consultants at superior rates compared to our competitors, our services remain more favourably priced as a result of lower overhead costs and a leaner operating model.

All of our consultants are either current medical and dental students at professional healthcare programs across Canada and the US, or resident or attending physicians in a variety of specialities. Our consultants are thoroughly experienced teachers and mentors, and many have been on admissions committees at their own professional schools. In addition, every single consultant has personally navigated the admissions process with success. As such, they are well-versed with the characteristics and qualities that healthcare programs seek in their applicants.

Our consultants come from a variety of backgrounds, with great diversity in their academic, professional, and personal experiences. We aim to match all our clients with consultants based on commonalities in their profile. As such, you will be meeting the consultant who can best advise you based on your specific situation.

We have been in business for a decade and have a success rate of just over 90% for students who are enrolled in our flagship Admissions guarantee packages. Our rate refers to first time applicants and is even higher when we take applications in subsequent years into account. Reading too much into the success rate of any one company can be misleading since success rates largely depend on the innate qualities of the students we receive. Based on our experience, any company advertising a comparable success rate for all students (as opposed to a subset) is unlikely to be telling the truth.

It is up to consultants and individual students to decide on a location that is convenient for both parties. Increasingly, many of our consultations also happen over the telephone, Skype, or other video conferencing software.

The time purchased in a consulting package can be spread across as many appointments as you and your consultant see fit. Your purchase can also be applied outside of scheduled appointments for use of consultant time to edit essays and personal statements, etc.

Many students who use our services wish to maintain their privacy. Due to the volume of such requests, we cannot share the contact information of former students. However, we encourage you to read testimonials from some of the students we’ve helped on our home page. Unlike the testimonials supplied by almost all our competitors, we have real identifiable students who are willing to testify to the value of our services. Many of our consultants have also used our services as pre-med students themselves and subsequently joined us to pass along the inherent value they see in such a service.

Knowing the application processes as well as we do, we realize how sensitive and private the information in a student’s application can be. We have strict confidentiality agreements that prevent our consultants from any unauthorized disclosure of personal information. For more information, please read our Privacy policy.
