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!

This year’s admissions season (2021-2022), we had a 97% acceptance rate. What made it so significant is that despite the increase in BS/MD applications (in some schools by 30%), our clients were accepted! How do we do this? Blog: What Makes Us Different and Successful – Knowledge

It’s a celebration for high school seniors who know for certain that they are on the path to become medical doctors.  Their parents are extremely happy that they hired us. Dr. Lowe and his team were the catalysts that resulted in their children’s acceptance to BS/MD programs.

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!

Seeking BS/MD Help as Seniors in October? It’s Too Late!

Time_not_enough_time_clock_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert

It’s mid-October, and we are currently receiving calls and emails from anxious parent of high school seniors requesting BS/MD Admissions help. Here is the problem for these parents (and students). It’s too late!

Valuable and trusted BS/MD advice starts as early as middle school prior to high school. The optimum time to hire an educational consultant, who specializes in BS/MD admissions, is sophomore or junior year (when you see that the student is committed to being a doctor), they have at least one year of high school grades.

Many of the parents contacting us, at this time, are making two major mistakes in BS/MD admissions:

  1. Requesting that we only work on essays.
  2. Hiring multiple educational consultants.

In the first case, to help students develop meaningful and admissions-type essays, one has to thoroughly understand the personality, characteristic, achievements and WOW Factor of the student. This understanding takes months. In the second case, hiring multiple consultants may cause inconsistencies in developing what I call the WOW Factor narrative.

Not surprisingly, when we receive these calls, students sound exactly alike: high SAT/ACT scores, 4.3 and above weighted GPA, shadowing, published research paper (or two), a website indicating that they have helped socio-economically disadvantaged students.  Their achievements sound exactly alike; it is as though they have been reading the same books, visiting the same websites and talking with the same people.  Although these parents have yet to experience the outcome of this practice, it generally means they have prepared their children to be rejected from BS/MD programs and Ivy league and highly selective colleges and universities.  By simply procrastinating, their mistakes are irreversible and irrevocable.  It is simply too late for our firm to correct their mistakes or make recommendations to enhance their student profiles.

BS/MD admissions is super-competitive.  We find ways through our experience and knowledge to help our clients stand out.  We know that our clients who have retained us from the sophomore or junior year will look and sound superior to other students. Our acceptance results speak to this!
