    Medical school admissions consulting

    Posted by Anonymous on October 10, 2022

    Excellent service ! The amount of detail backed by data and experience is out of this world. Applying for medical school is such a complex process with so much conflicting information, plus the medical schools seem to keep moving the goalpost. We needed an independent review, someone to look at our best attributes and match them to appropriate medical schools. This is exactly what we got from Dr Jiva ! At the end of the session we had 4 sensible options written down and felt much more relaxed about the way forward. We honestly felt this service was great value for money and after this experience have applied for further courses run by the company. Well done guys and keep up the good work

    Excellent. I wish that we had requested an earlier personal statement review so that my daughter would have had more time to rework the proposed content in the light of the feedback. We had superb support from Dr Jivah. She ensured that we understood the feedback and how the personal statement could be tailored to the expectations of medical schools to which my daughter was applying.
