My Credentials


What I do (in a nutshell): I counsel those who are interested in what it takes both academically and non-academically to become a well-qualified applicant to medical school as they prepare their applications.

Almost no other medical school admissions consultant has this combined background of both 10 years as an Admissions Committee Voting Member & as an ongoing Stanford University on-staff pre-med advisor and Mock Interview Specialist, as well as 20+ years of medical school admissions private consulting.

Formerly Assistant Director of Medical School Admissions at Stanford University (1990-1999), and as an ongoing Academic Advisor to Stanford pre-meds, I understand your questions and uncertainties.
With my 10 years medical school admissions committee, I have a unique knowledge of the admissions process from the "inside."

As a 30+ year undergraduate advisor to pre-meds coming fro
m every possible college major, I am able to blend this knowledge with my Admissions Committee experience.

If you are within a year of applying, you and I will:
- Evaluate your coursework.
- Review your extracurricular activities.
- Discuss clinical opportunities and community service.

The interview trip - planning, etc.
Dealing with the Admissions offices.

The Mock Interview includes:
Tips for your interview day.
Questions that you may be asked during an interview, both traditional and MMI.
A discussion of your responses.

"Too many interviewees are unprepared," according to Gabriel Garcia, MD,
former Assoc. Dean of Admissions, Stanford University School of Medicine.

I want you to know the joy of a congratulatory acceptance.
