Why Dr. Paul Lowe is Considered a BS/MD Admissions Guru

BSMD_Admissions_Guru_logo_Dr_Paul_Lowe

In the 2021-2022 BS/MD admissions cycle, several clients who were admitted to one or more BS/MD programs stated that Dr. Lowe was a guru.  One student who was admitted to several BS/MD programs recommended that Dr. Lowe name himself the BS/MD Admissions Guru because he AIMS for an A+ Standard.

Lowe, M.D. by participating in continuous weekly parent-student-Dr. Lowe SKYPE/ZOOM meetings. What’s the result of these strategic game plan meetings?  Acceptances to BS/MD programs!

For BS/MD Admissions, Hiring Many Consultants Simultaneously – A Mistake!

Mistakes_kid_Avoid_Admissions_Game_Plan_Dr_Paul_Lowe

We frequently receive email inquiries from parent (actual email) which demonstrate paths to mistakes:

Parent 1 Email: “This is for my son a high school senior applying for BS/MD programs. Stats: ACT 34 (25 superscore), SAT: 1540 has clinical rotation >80 hrs shadowing and >150 hrs research with 1 publication and national science research award. We are currently working with another educational consultant. I am looking for brainstorming/assistance/refining his supplemental for “Why Medicine” and Why Us”.

Parent 2 Email: “We are just looking for some advice on interview prep. We’ve hired someone else but just need this help”

Our assessment:

Email 1 Assessment: This demonstrates that the parent has read books, visited websites and believes that they are doing all the right things the right way. The problem is that his son sounds just like every other BS/MD applicant. They hired tutors and an educational consultant to get the basics. His “Why Medicine” and “Why Us” essays will probably be unimpressive without a consultant’s in-depth assessment of his son. By requesting to hire us just for essays only, we would not know the student. In our experience, the same consultant should be involved in evaluating and enhancing the student profile so that profile can be the basis of his essays. The student narrative would otherwise seem disconnected.

Email 2 Assessment: Hiring a consultant only for interview prep is limiting since the consultant is not involved with the student’s profile, application, essays, etc.,…another disconnect. Blog: BS/MD Admissions Interview.

Successful BS/MD admissions involves a combination of (1) Student profile preparation and development. (2) Common Application review and editing. (3) School-specific Supplemental review and editing. (4) Medical School essay review and editing. (5) Interview preparation. (6) Media development. For successful admissions, we believe it should involve one consultant who knows every facet of the student’s admission journey! How do we know that it works?

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!

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.

Are You Brown PLME-Ready?

Brown_PLME-Ready_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor

I am writing this blog because many parents contact us about Brown PLME. Many parents are aware that Brown PLME is one of the top direct BS/MD programs if not THE top BS/MD program. We find that many students, after visiting several direct BS/MD programs, remark that “Brown PLME is where they want to be”. As Brown graduates, and admissions advisors who have clients who are currently at Brown and have graduated Brown and are now in their medical residencies or practicing medicine, we KNOW Brown is a special place!

So here’s the question: ARE YOU BROWN PLME-READY?

For juniors, who will be applying next year, firstly, I recommend that you read: High School Juniors: Time To Get Serious About BS/MD Plans II. Secondly, you need to consider how to develop your WOW FACTOR. Thirdly, increasing your chances of admissions to a program requires expert advice, a professional who specializes in admissions to top BS/MD programs: Dr. Paul Lowe: Achieving High Acceptance Rates in BS/MD Admissions.

So the real question here is: DO YOU WANT TO BE BROWN PLME-READY?

It’s that simple!

Happy Diwali!

Diwali_Dr_Paul_Lowe_BS_MD_Admissions_Advisors

Diwali, the five-day “Festival of Lights”, is one of the most popular and celebrated holidays in India.  The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. Diwali marks a spiritual awakening and symbolizes “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.

There are several ways to say Happy Diwali:

  • In Hindi: “Diwali ki Shubhkamnayein” or “Shush Deepavali”
  • In Punjabi: “tuhanu Diwali diyan bohat both vadhaiyan”
  • In Gujarati: “Diwali ni mubarak or saal Mubarak”
  • In Tamil: “Deepavali nalvazhthukal”

What is significant and uplifting with respect to Diwali and my firm is that many of our clients observe Diwali as they are enjoying the campuses of their top-choice colleges which include, although are not limited to Brown, RPI, Boston University, Case Western, Cornell, Rice, Harvard, Yale and Dartmouth.  Many are now in the corresponding medical schools of their undergraduate BS/MD programs.

This year, on day four, I was given gifts and invited to participate in Diwali, with clients who are now friends whose children were accepted to Harvard, Brown (undergraduate), Brown PLME, Harvard, Yale, Cornell and Columbia.
