“I had almost given up on medical school after two previous unsuccessful applications, but working with Dr. Miller made all the difference this time KNOWS what the admissions committee is looking for, and more importantly, HOW to communicate one's desire to become a doctor. The latter point is crucial. I had the usual research and volunteer activities similar to the majority of applicants, and not even my GPA and MCAT scores were that remarkable. But with Dr. Miller's help, I was able to communicate my story of why I wanted to become a doctor in a way that set my application apart from others. Furthermore, I worked with Dr. Miller to prepare for my interviews, which gave me the confidence to ace them. In the end, the results speak for themselves -- I was accepted to six medical schools, including some "reach" schools I never thought would consider school application process is an arduous path and having Dr. Miller's guidance is one of the best things you can do for yourself.”
