We understand how stressful and confusing the medical school admissions process can be. In fact, even if you have done all the “right things” to be a competitive applicant such as getting the best grades, shadowing, doing research, engaging in community service, and having strong letters of reference, you know there is no guarantee you will be admitted.
You may also be concerned about how you compare to other applicants since it seems, on the surface, that all medical school applicants have similar experiences. You are not alone; every premed student has the same fear.

With MedEdits, you can trust that we have the experience you are looking for. Our founder, Dr. Jessica Freedman, structured MedEdits like an academic medical department.

Our unique team approach allows us to draw upon each other’s knowledge and strengths to offer you the most comprehensive and reliable guidance.
We understand that finding the right help can be extremely confusing. What distinguishes MedEdits as the best medical school admissions consulting group from the sea of medical school admissions consulting services and med school coaches who claim to be admissions experts? First of all, MedEdits faculty have extensive hands-on experience in medicine, medical education, admissions, writing, and editing. We are not self-taught entrepreneurs with minimal to zero experience in medical admissions, clinical medicine, and medical education. Sadly, the majority of people in the admissions industry are exactly that.
At MedEdits, we are true insiders. We have made the difficult admissions decisions and are privy to the inner workings of the school of medicine admissions process. We also know what it means to practice clinical medicine and work in competitive academic medical settings.

Now, here is the big question:
Questions #2: Does it really matter if the people I work with were on an actual medical school admissions committee?
We believe that past medical school admissions committee experience is crucial for the person or people who guide you. Why? Anyone can find publicly available admissions data online. Ironically, the smartest Harvard or Stanford Medical School graduate might the worst person to assist you because he or she likely has only anecdotal experience and a very narrow knowledge and admissions experience base.
Rather, it is understanding the inside scoop and nuances related to the admissions process at a broad range of medical schools and attending national medical association insider meetings that allow us to interpret admissions data with a more critical lens. We are also able to advise the most competitive applicant as well as the person who has a flaw or two in her background. This insight is what you should be paying for when hiring an advisor.
MedEdits was founded based on the ideals of an academic medical department and is comprised of a team of educators with a variety of backgrounds who work collaboratively in the spirit of scholarship. We have lived and breathed medical school admissions for years and continue to do so. Read a message from our founder, Dr. Jessica Freedman, to discover more about MedEdits’ history and mission.

Question #3: Do you only work with students who want to go to top medical schools?
