BS/MD Admissions 2022-2023 – It’s Even More Competitive

BS_MD_Programs_Competition_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Educational_Consultant_IECA_HECA

Each year, after discussion with admissions officers, analyzing national and global trends and developing predictive analysis, my team and I try to see the trends on BS/MD Admissions.

This year is expected to be another highly competitive year as the share number of high school students interested in BS/MD programs is increasing, while the admissions rates to BS/MD programs are expected to fall.

BS_MD_Applications_Increase_Fauci_Effect_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisors

This year, there are several developments and trends that will cause an even greater competition for admissions to BS/MD programs for current juniors (class of 2023):

  • More students are deciding to pursue medicine.
  • Closing of BS/MD programs including: Northwestern HPME and Washington U. and U. Cincinnati. For this reason, the number of available beds/slots have decreased.
  • Within a particular demographic (South Asian/Indian community) more students are applying for coveted spots.
  • Programs are not just seeking top grades and SAT scores, but looking at character and intangibles.
  • Several BS/MD programs including ones at : Union College, UConn, Penn State, UPitts and have become test-optional which means that schools will be looking characteristics outside of typical grades.
  • Comments we have heard from admissions officer who review applications is that applicants are making mistakes on their Common Application: (1) Not answering the questions (2) Not understanding the supplements (3) Disconnected answers.

High school students applying to BS/MD programs typically has: high GPA, high standardized test scores, health-care-related extracurricular activities, volunteer community service, research, medical clinical experience, seemingly compelling essays, strong letters of recommendations, seemingly outstanding resumes. However, they all sound the same, and unremarkable to admissions officers

Our clients stand out because in addition to the have characteristics they have a WOW factor and pizzazz that makes them stand out as compared to other applicants! This is what makes them achieve their dream!

The Need for a BS/MD Admissions Advisor Even When You Have a High School Counselor

High School Counselor_BS_MD_Admissions_Advisors_Dr_Paul_Lowe

When parents of high school students call our offices inquiring about BS/MD programs, the first question I explore with them is why they are calling about our services if they already have a high school counselor?  Their response is usually 2-fold.  (1) The high school counselor is overwhelmed with many students.  (2) The high school counselor is not a physician-scientist and lacks the knowledge in preparation, specifically for BS/MD programs.

school_guidance_counselor_over_worked_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor
US Dept of Education (2017) reported that the student-to-public school ratio is on average, 455 students to 1 school counselor.

Because of the increasing hyper-competition to get into BS/MD Programs, many families feel overwhelmed and stressed by this particular type of specialized college admissions process.  Moreover, the process can seem so complex that families may want the assistance, resources and knowledge of an (physician-scientist) expert who focuses on BS/MD programs and who spends more time and individualized attention than school college counselors are able to provide. 

Many parents and students discover too late (when their children do not receive BS/MD interview offers or receive rejection letters) in the BS/MD college admissions process that they should have hired a BS/MD admissions expert.

Benefits of a BS/MD Admissions Advisor:

  • An educational consultant who is a physician-scientist.
  • Provides one-on-one BS/MD program guidance and counseling.
  • Provides continuous comprehensive year-round admissions services.
  • Provides recommendations for research and shadowing opportunities and advise on appropriate student-driven research publications.
  • Provides traditional college and essay guidance and assistance as well as BS/MD supplemental essay guidance and assistance.
  • Provides traditional college interview preparation as well as BS/MD (MMI-type) interview preparation.
  • Develop strategies to guide you to your “Best Chance” BS/MD programs based on student’s profile.

INVESTING in a BS/MD admissions advisor is the best strategy for your child’s admissions success to BS/MD programs!

Transfer to Ivy Leagues – Top Premedical Programs

In our practice, we are increasingly seeing students who are making the decision to transfer while in their freshman and sophomore years.  Many of these students desire to be medical doctors and had applied to BS/MD programs (and Ivies) and were not accepted. Here are some of the main reasons I see why students decide to transfer:

  • Pre-medical school preparation:  Your current college may not have a strong pre-med program needed for medical school admissions preparation or a medical school acceptance track record. Ivy League schools: Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, UPenn and Yale all have top premedical programs.
  • They are unhappy:  Why remain in an environment for four years where you will be unhappy and miserable – and pay tuition, room and board that will cost you (or your parents) $200,000 – $250,000.
  • Institutional prestige:  You may be attending your safety school and you want a second chance for your preferred school or you were discouraged from applying to your dream school.  In any case, you desire what we call an UPGRADE.
Upgrade_college_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor

Whatever the reason for transferring, the bottom line is that you need to develop an effective action plan to transfer. Especially, if you are considering to apply to a medical school after college!  

Medical_School_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor
You want to attend a college with a superior pre-medical program.

Consider seeking professional, expert advice:  Why?  In my professional experience, I find that prospective transfer students need to develop individualized, effective transfer plans and implement them.  As a transfer student, you no longer have the assistance of your public high school or private high school college counselor.  You will need an educational consultant who specializes in college transfer admissions.  You’re basically on your own in the transfer process that is even more competitive than when you applied to college the first time!

Prepare early: Middle School BS/MD Admissions Program

BS/MD Admissions Program for Middle School Students

BS_MD_Middle_School_Pre_high_school_program_Dr_Paul_Lowe

Middle school is the perfect time to start college and BS/MD program planning! Starting the process before high school, gives parents (and students) more time to prepare for the competitive admissions process.

Acceptance into BS/MD programs has become more difficult as more students apply and some programs are closing. It’s essential that parents develop pre-high school plans.

middle school_BS_MD_program_Dr_Paul_Lowe

We provide a 3-month enrichment program for parents of middle schoolers (grades 7 and 8) who wish to develop effective college admissions plans prior to their children entering high school. The program includes:

  • Personal Middle-School Comprehensive Assessment & Review.
  • Pre-high school student profile development.
  • High school course curriculum planning.
  • Extracurricular activity planning for high school.
  • Develop plans for possible leadership, research, internship and shadowing opportunities
  • Overview of current BS/MD & Ivy League admissions and current trends.
  • College admissions strategy prior to entering high school.
  • WOW Factor planning prior to entering high school.
  • Parents work directly with Dr. Paul Lowe, M.D., physician-scientist and admissions expert.

Our program helps seventh and eighth grade students prepare for high school before it starts! Remember, once you start high school, courses, grades and activities appear on the college application. You need to correctly plan to navigate the admissions process and avoid making irrevocable mistakes while your child is in middle school.
