Congratulations to Clients: UPITTS GAP and AMC Supplementals

It’s that time of the year when BS/MD applicants are waiting to see if they will be eligible to receive supplemental applications from BS/MD programs as an additional step during the application process. After the initial review of their Common Application submitted, a limited number of students are selected to continue in the process by the corresponding medical schools in these direct BS/MD programs. Those selected will be asked to submit a supplemental application in support of their candidacy.

Congratulations to our BS/MD Admissions clients who have received:

  • RPI/Albany Medical College Physician Scientist Program supplementals.
  • University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine’s Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) supplementals.

Brown University Family Weekend 2022

Family_Weekend_Brown_University_PLME_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant_Admissions_Advisor

This past weekend, I was invited by several of my Brown and Brown PLME clients to Brown University Family Weekend! What a great experience to see my clients and their parents enjoying the Brown campus and Thayer Street together!

After two months on the campus, students were happily sharing their lives with their parents, siblings and aunts and uncles! I enjoyed attending the many academic forums, sporting events and the Brown-sponsored evening WaterFire with them.

After all our hard work together, it’s so great to see my clients and their families enjoying my alma mater!

Here are our 2022 Brown PLME results: 12 clients applied.  Of the 12, 8 were accepted to PLME. The remaining 4: One accepted to Brown undergrad, 1 accepted to Harvard (also accepted to RPI/AMC), 1 accepted to Yale, and one accepted to Dartmouth (also accepted to GW and NJIT BSMD programs).

Dr. Lowe and his team collectively bring a wealth of admissions experience, along with diverse cultural perspectives that are INVALUABLE to their BS/MD clients! They are skilled in the language and rhythm of college admissions!

BS/MD Admissions: Brown University Application Video Portfolio

Brown_Video_portfolio_Dr_Paul_Lowe_BS_MD_Admissions_Guru

Many colleges and universities are providing an option for applicants to submit a video admissions essay aka application essay videos or college application videos with their admission applications. These colleges/universities include: Goucher College, Tufts University and George Mason University.

In this blog, we will discuss Brown’s video option, since we recommend that all of our clients who are applying to Brown (and specifically Brown PLME) create amazing videos.

Brown University Admissions states this on its website: ” [Brown] encourages applicants to submit a two-minute personal video introduction as an additional component of their application…The video introduction gives you an opportunity to tell us more about yourself, in your voice, beyond the information you provided in your application. Sharing a two-minute personal video is a helpful way to show us who you are and why you are interested in attending Brown…..As with any aspect of the admission process, there is no specific topic or format we are hoping to see in your video introduction….anything else that will allow us to get to know you better. No two Brown students have the same story, and we don’t expect that any two video introductions will either.”

Dr. Lowe, through weekly Skype sessions, continually prepares his clients through interview prep, including etiquette, manners and non-verbal cues, as they plan for successful college application videos!

Here are elements to consider for your college video production:

  • Marketing Tool: Your video is a marketing tool. It’s a form of media-messaging. As an effective marketing tool, your video increases your brand recognition, helps you effectively reach and connect with your target audience – admissions officers. It can provide an admissions edge over your competitors.
  • Script Development: The essential part of every video presentation is the script. An excellent script will make your video more concise. It gets your message across succinctly and tells your unique story. You should, therefore, develop the best narrative for your video so that you can describe your character and personality effectively from beginning to end to your target audience – Admissions Officers!
  • Video Takes: All videos are reviewed by the collective effort of: Dr. Lowe and his team elocutionists, actors, writers, musicians, ethnomusicologists, musicians, marketing and advertising professionals, public relations and personal brand professionals, short film directors and producers, scriptwriting and screenwriting professionals, makeup artists, psychologists, linguists, image consultants, anthropologists, admissions professionals, student-interns and librarians.
  • Brown PLME Acceptance: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a successful two-minute video is worth an acceptance letter.

How much is a successful two-minute production worth to you?

Congratulations_Brown_PLME_Dr_Paul_Lowe_BS_MD_Admissions

With our track record, we must be doing something RIGHT! Specifically for Brown PLME, last year, 12 of my clients applied.  Of the 12, 8 were accepted to PLME.  The remaining 4: One accepted to Brown undergrad, 1 accepted to Harvard (also accepted to RPI/AMC), 1 accepted to Yale, and one accepted to Dartmouth (also accepted to GW and NJIT BSMD programs) 

At College Admissions Video Productions, we know what needs to be in your college application videos!

BS/MD Admissions: Making Huge Mistakes On Why Doctor Essays

I find that even after shadowing doctors, a family member in a hospital, or the desire to be a medical doctor that students still can not successfully complete their why doctor essay.

When I review “Why Doctor Essays” of students who were rejected from BS/MD programs I find essays that are general, commonplace, disjointed. We also find even one word or a sentence the causes a rejection!

My team and I spend hours with our clients strategizing and brainstorming what should be the content of their BS/MD “Why Doctor” essays. Our clients rough drafts, therefore, correctly convey why doctor, then we assist our clients in editing and revising their essays; sometimes as much as 10 revisions. Once we are satisfied with the content, flow and cadence of the essay, we present it to our mock BS/MD admission committee which consist of former BS/MD admissions officers, Dr. Lowe and his team. This is another why our clients have greater chance to be accepted to BS/MD programs.

When parents call us to inquire about our specialized admissions advisory services and ask us what’s your price? They should consider: (1) How much it cost them for private school tuition, violin lessons, tennis lessons, karate lessons dance lessons academic tutoring and SAT/ACT prep and research opportunities and (2) Determine how they will feel if their child is rejected from all BS/MD programs including Ivy League school and highly selective colleges and universities.

What is the price of all that: (1) and (2)?

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 applications perfect, they may overlook certain aspects of their profiles, admission journeys and applications which could lead to rejections.

In the hypercompetitive BS/MD Admissions universe, having perfect grades, high SAT/ACT scores, while doing research and shadowing may help, but it won’t necessarily increase your chances to have a spot at BS/MD programs. I receive calls and emails from parents who really believe and want to confirm that they have done the right things the right way and haven taken all the steps to ensure that their children have a shot at BS/MD programs. They are usually mistaken!

I discover that they have made bad assumptions and egregious mistakes when they call me later that their children were: (1) Rejected from all BS/MD programs as well as 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).

BS_MD_Admissions_College-Application_Rejected_Dr_Paul_Lowe

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 schools was accepted to only 2 schools – her safety schools and now attends a safety. Result: Parents have now hired us for college admissions transfer. (2) A student (I must say here from Texas) 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! In addition, the student was also rejected from Ivy League and highly selective schools because there were major errors on his Common Application!

Here are 30 ways how high school students and BS/MD applicants (and their parents) cause their own 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 test scores you have great shot.
  6. Assume that your school college counselor understands the nuances of BS/MD programs and medical school admissions.
  7. Hire multiple educational consultants in an attempt to get the lowest price.
  8. Have your parents or relatives write your Common Application and BS/MD supplemental essays.
  9. Your Common Application, essays, letters of recommendations and profile are disconnected.
  10. Your high school college counselor and/or teachers were unsupportive or did not write a strong letter of recommendation.
  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 your 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 assume that by talking with a student who is currently enrolled in a BS/MD program that you are in!
  26. You make mistakes involving etiquette, manners and attitude.
  27. You assume that winning multiple awards will get you in.
  28. You lack meaningful extracurricular activities.
  29. You underestimate consequences of the closings of BS/MD programs.
  30. You decide not to hire an expert with years of experience, contacts and proven acceptance rates – A BS/MD Admissions Guru, because you believe it’s not worth it!

Congratulations! After following all the steps, you (or your parents) will be 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.

College_Admissions_Betting_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant

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 steps and are outright rejected! My questions are always: Why would you? How could you? What were you thinking? The reason or answer to these questions: Students (and parents) actually believe that they know more than BS/MD Admissions Guru!

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.
