Thompson Advising - Experience. Knowledge. Results.

Expert Medical School Admission Consulting and Post-Bac Program Admission Consulting

My consulting service is straightforward and simple, with three options offered for medical school applicants.

Advising usually begins with a comprehensive conversation and strategy session regarding your background, past experiences, and future goals; I will ask questions and help identify the strengths and weaknesses in your medical school application. This conversation takes place after you fill out and submit the required Client Information Form. Without having this background knowledge I cannot comprehensively advise you, thus this strategy session is well worth the money invested.

Clients may forgo the initial strategy session if they simply want a review of the medical school personal statement or other services provided at the hourly rate (secondary applications, mock interviews, etc.). 

The above services are offered at the following rate:

Hourly:  $345

For clients who prefer comprehensive services, there are two package options:

Expert: $2500, includes the following, for either AMCAS, TMDSAS or AACOMAS:

  • Assessment of your credentials/background and in-depth strategy session;
  • Personal Statement discussion, insight, and reviews (3 drafts);
  • Activity Description reviews (3 drafts);
  • Thorough review of and help assembling a thoughtful and tactical list of medical schools.
