How to Get Rejected from BS/MD Programs

Envelope_Rejected_BS_MD_Programs_Dr_Paul_Lowe

As students fill out their college and BS/MD applications, they work meticulously on them to do everything right and impress the admissions offices and committees. However, as prospective students are trying to make their application perfect, they may overlook certain aspects of their profile, admission journey and application which could lead rejections.

In the hypercompetitive of BS/MD Admissions universe, having perfect grades, high SAT/ACT scores, while doing research and shadowing and may help, but it won’t guarantee you a spot at BS/MD programs. I receive calls and email from parents who really believe that they have done the right things the right way and that their children have a shot at BS/MD programs. They are mistaken!

I discover that they have made bad assumption’s and egregious mistakes when they call me later that their children were: (1) Rejected from all BS/MD programs as and Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities, (2) They were invited for BS/MD interviews but were later rejected (3) They call us in the fall as their child is entering a super-safety school (because they were rejected from all but that school.

Three examples (they were not my clients) last year: (1) A valedictorian who applied to 19 schools (Ivy and BS/MD programs) and 2 safety was accepted to only 2 schools – her safety school and now is attends a safety. Result: Parents have hired us for college admissions transfer. (2) A student (I must say here from Texas area) whose parents thought that she was a shoo-in to BS/MD programs, was rejected from all BS/MD programs and all colleges and decided to take a gap year! (3) A student applying to BS/MD programs – parents assured us that he shadowed with top physicians and had published. However, upon review of why doctor essays AND interviews major errors were found. The student was rejected from all BS/MD programs!

Here are 25 ways how BS/MD applicants (and their parents) cause their rejections!

Rejected_BS_MD_Programs_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor
  1. Follow what other students did the previous year.
  2. Follow advice from online platforms.
  3. Read books with obsolete advice.
  4. Hire an educational consultant who has no experience in BS/MD admissions
  5. Assume that because you have great standardized scores you have great shot.
  6. Assume that your school counselor understands the nuances of BS/MD programs and medical school admissions.
  7. Hire multiple educational consultants
  8. Have your parents or relatives wrote your BS/MD supplemental essays.
  9. Your Common Application, essays, letters of recommendations and profile are disconnected.
  10. School counselor and/or teachers were not unsupportive.
  11. Your applications are vague and generic.
  12. Your supplemental essays are disjointed and don’t answer the questions.
  13. Your application sounds just like ones on the internet (and therefore everyone else).
  14. You assume that admissions officers will not find errors in your application and narrative.
  15. You made mistakes during the undergraduate interview.
  16. You made mistakes during the alumnus/a interview
  17. You made mistakes during the medical school interview.
  18. You assume that other students in you class are not applying to BS/MD programs.
  19. You assume that the narrative you and/or your parents created will be believable by admissions officers.
  20. Your “Why Doctor Essay” was filled with why you can’t be a doctor or should not be a doctor.
  21. Your connections actually are the reasons why you will be rejected.
  22. You assume that because your parent or parents are physicians that they understand BS/MD admissions.
  23. You assume that you can game BS/MD admissions.
  24. You assume that there is no bias in college admissions.
  25. You decide not to hire an expert with years of experience, contacts and proven acceptance rates – A Guru!

Congratulations! After following most if not all of the above, you (or your parents) were instrumental in causing your rejection from BS/MD programs as well as Ivy League colleges and universities and colleges with excellent pre-med programs.

Many parents gamble on their children’s futures. They underestimate the risks that will lead to rejections and overestimate the chances of success using antiquated generic strategies.

After years of preparation, intense studying, taking all those AP courses, hours of shadowing, writing papers (possibly publishing), violin recitals, dance competitions, team sports, volunteering, traveling, visiting hundreds of “how-to websites” and your parents saying that you wanted to be a doctor since you were 5 years old – you use one or several or all the above and are outright rejected! My questions are always Why would you? How could you? What were you thinking?

BS/MD Programs that Accept H4 Visa Students – 2022

BS_MD_Admissions_programs_H4_Visa_Students_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant

This year, our offices are receiving more calls and emails from parents who presently have H1B visas whose high school students have H4 visas who wish to become U.S. medical doctors through BS/MD programs. Dr. Paul Lowe and his team have developed a specialty helping these students navigate the college admissions and specifically the hypercompetitive BS/MD admissions process.

Based on Dr. Lowe’s professional experience as a BS/MD admissions advisor, and long-term professional relationships with admissions officers and administrators, here is a current list of several BS/MD programs that will consider reviewing applications of international and H4 Visa students:

  • Brown University Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME)
  • Case Western Reserve University Pre-Professional Scholars Program in Medicine
  • Howard University BS/MD
  • Pennsylvania State University Accelerated Premedical-Medical Program
  • Rutgers University-Newark BA/MD
  • SUNY Upstate Accelerated Scholars Program
  • University of Connecticut Special Program in Medicine
  • University Rochester – Rochester Early Medical Scholars (REMS)

Working with H4 visa high school students who desire to matriculate to BS/MD programs is a very involved, comprehensive and long-term process.  My team and I must clearly understand student goals, continuously help students with their applications and develop successful admissions strategies. After all, we know the value of becoming a licensed U.S. medical doctor!

High school juniors/sophomores and parents of high school juniors/sophomores should read this blog: High School Students – Time To Get Serious About BS/MD Plans Part II.

Many H1B parents, who are well educated and professionals, believe that they can review general information, garnish tips and help their children to gain acceptance into BS/MD program. This is a mistake! Data and information simply gathered is of little consequence if it is not matched by resources (and wisdom) required to put it into practice! These parent realize their mistakes when there children are not only rejected from all BS/MD programs as well as ivy and highly-selective schools they applied to.

Navigating BS/MD Admissions: A New Playbook

Playbook_BS_MD_Admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Guru

Parents are facing the challenge of currently navigating the BS/MD admissions landscape. Incorrect decisions as to when, where and how to turn now results in shipwrecks: immediate rejection of their children after their years of planning. One incorrect extracurricular activity, one negative letter of recommendation, one incorrect sentence in an essay, one incorrect answer in an interview and one incorrect non-verbal cue and or perception will result in a REJECTION! It’s that competitive.

There are continuous fundamental shifts and uncertainty in BS/MD admissions. BS/MD programs are not just about high GPA and test scores, 3-5 page resumes, research and hours of shadowing. It’s now about the interrelated narrative of why you wish to be a doctor and how the student profile stands out, as well how it fits your narrative.

From what I have observed, parents are attempting to game the admissions landscape by using antiquated strategies from outdated books or visiting online communities which provide generic information. Even taking advice from last year’s accepted students can result in rejections!

The COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. economy, healthcare inequity, and student demographics and the number of BS/MD programs have changed the admissions landscape and even enrollment/admissions policies and goals at many schools. The recent closing of BS/MD programs is a testament to the changing landscape and will affect BS/MD admissions policies and goals.

  • Query: With factors such as VOLATILITY, UNCERTAINTY, the UNFORESEEN and the UNEXPECTED what are parents to do?
  • Query: What are parents to do, after spending considerable years of time and money in attempting to secure a future for their child, when they now face sudden changes in the educational and admissions environment years?

Answer: Sounds simple – Hire a BS/MD admissions advisor who is an expert! We are the NEW PLAYBOOK!

According to Rice University’s website: “Rice University has concluded our participation in the Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars program.”

Since the Medical Scholars Program will not be accepting applications in 2022, the competition to gain admissions into BS/MD programs will now increase because there will be fewer programs.

Now it has become even more competitive as major BS/MD programs have closed and the number slots are dwindling! Over the last 5 years, these programs have also closed:

Summer Vacation – Time to Get Serious with BS/MD applications!

BS_MD_Planning_Summer_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant

It’s summer vacation! Many students and their families are beginning to travel. Students are finally now able to sleep much later. Some students are simply meeting up with friends!

But some students are also thinking about college and the Common Application.  During this time, our clients get serious!!! They know that they have to compete to win the coveted slots in BS/MD programs and Ivy League and highly competitive colleges and universities.  Blog: High School Juniors: Time to Get Serious About BS/MD Plans – II. Many of our clients have already completed their Common App personal statement.  Applying to the most competitive college programs involves strategies, preplanning, re-planning navigating and avoiding costly mistakes.

Our clients are aware that after Dr. Paul Lowe, BS/MD Admissions Guru provides continuous weekly BS/MD Skype or Zoom strategy sessions, including assistance with essay revisions, mock interview preparations and WOW factor analyses, they will be better prepared, than not only other students in their school, but also students in neighboring school districts and other states to gain admissions to BS/MD programs.

Why take all those AP courses, participate in university-related summer activities, be involved with all those commonplace extracurricular activities, hire tutors and essay editors to sound just everyone else so that you are rejected from not only BS/MD programs, Ivy League schools? Why? It’s time to get serious and work with an expert who has proven results!

Top 10 Reasons Why BS/MD Programs Will Reject You

Rejected_BS_MD_Programs_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor
This year, thousands of high school seniors were rejected from BS/MD programs. But…………

This year, we had an acceptance rate of 97%.

BS_MD_Admissions_Advisors_97_Ninety_Seven_Acceptance_Dr_Paul_Lowe

It may seem unimaginable to parents, high school counselors and even our fellow educational consultants that our BS/MD acceptance rate is 97%. But the reality is that we do things the right way and the best way for our clients by avoiding mistakes that will cause our clients to be rejected.

When parents hire us their children are already excellent high school students (at least one-dimensionally on paper). Through our strategies, we help to enhance their student profiles so they stand out from other applicants, and avoid mistakes. We implement a “mistakes avoidance assessment and analysis through out the admissions process. By understanding mistakes and the history of why other students were rejected and our professional discussions with admissions officers, we have observed 10 reasons why applicants to BS/MD programs are rejected.

Here are the top 10 reasons:

  1. Errors in student profile development in high school.
  2. Errors in the Common Application and Personal Statement.
  3. Errors in the supplemental essays.
  4. Errors in the “Why Doctor Essay”.
  5. Incorrect letters of recommendations
  6. Inappropriate interview responses.
  7. Inadequate resume.
  8. Not understanding the interconnectedness of the applications, essays and resume.
  9. Lack of understanding etiquette and manners in college and BS/MD admissions.
  10. Mistakes in developing or expressing WOW Factor.

Through global educational forums and conferences, Dr. Lowe continually networks and connects with college admissions officers, education policy makers, academicians and university development/advancement officers to discuss complex education-related issues nationally and globally. Dr. Lowe and his team are active members of the National Association of College and University Business Officers and Eastern Association of College (NACUBO) and Eastern University Business Officers (EACUBO) and partners with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO).
