The Advocate Advantage

As our motto says, “We go beyond advising. We Advocate.”

Whether you are taking the first step on your medical school journey and need advising or if you are already in the application process, the unparalleled mentorship that your Advocate Team will provide far exceeds the support that you will receive from any advisor.

Continue clicking through to see how we are different.

Because the medical school application process is dynamic and each applicant’s needs are unique, we’ve specifically designed our process to be open-ended. There are no time maximums, editing limits, or contact limitations. Your Advocate Team will provide whatever support is necessary to ensure your success.

As your Advocates, we will be at your side, supporting you at every step along the way, from start to finish.

Advocate Advantage is our flagship medical school acceptance program. As a prospective medical school applicant enrolled in Advocate Advantage, you will receive one-on-one mentorship, guidance, and support at every step of the process.

First, your Advocate Team will learn about you, your story, your ambitions, and work with you to develop a personalized plan to tackle the pre-medical admissions process.

Once the formal application writing begins, you and your Advocates will virtually meet several times each week to plan, brainstorm, strategize, and execute every aspect of your medical school application from scratch.

With medical school becoming increasingly competitive, a growing number of Pre-Medical students are seeking professional support in order to maximize their chances of acceptance. As a result, several dubious admissions consulting businesses have popped up to cater to this growing market. In fact, many of our past Advocate Advantage graduates found us after being dissatisfied by these very same businesses.

There are several telltale signs of these questionable businesses. Many are not exclusively dedicated to medical school admissions and also often offer other services such as advising in undergraduate admissions, business, pre-law, and various other unspecialized offerings.

Some may also make bold claims that their advisors are famous MDs who have served on prestigious medical school admissions committees. These businesses deceive by over-promising and under-delivering, and of course, most require full payment upfront for this very reason. You’ll also find that they have strict limits on the support they provide. Their advising physicians meet with you infrequently to provide superficial and generic guidance, while behind the scenes, outsourced editors who know very little about you, do most of the work. Of course, the results are underwhelming.

This isn’t surprising when you think about it. After all, how can a busy, successful physician dedicate the considerable time that it takes to provide one-on-one support and edit so many premedical applicants’ essays and applications?

We do it differently from anyone else because our sole focus is on our applicants. That is why we have specifically designed every aspect of the Advocate Advantage program to be considerate of your needs. For example, as a show of mutual respect, we do not mandate upfront payment. We only collect a deposit to reserve your spot, with the rest of the balance paid at milestones in the application process. We structured our program this way because we are confident that you will decide to keep working with us till the very end.

Our focus is quality, not quantity. We understand that we have a commitment to each of them to be consistently available. As one of our applicants, you are able to call or text us anytime for support, and we will always be responsive and available.

As your personal Advocates, we see our part in your success as a partnership with equally shared responsibility.

The medical school application process is incredibly time-consuming. To ensure that we’re able to provide the personalized high-quality attention that our brand is known for, we cannot make any exceptions to this policy.

The Advocate Advantage program starts several months before the application opens, and enrollment is closed for the 2022-2023 admissions cycle.

We are currently finalizing enrollment for the 2023-2024 cycle.

To date, every single one of our Advocate Advantage graduates has received a medical school acceptance on their very first attempt. However, if you graduate from the program but are not accepted to medical school, we will work with you to update your application when you reapply.

Our Unparalleled Dedication To
Ensuring Your Success

Your success is our success. As part of the Advocate Advantage program, here are just a few of the ways we support you throughout the medical school application process.


Preparation for medical school admission begins well before the application process begins. Whether you are early in your career or about to begin the application process, we’ll make sure that your next step is your best one yet.

Primary/Secondary Applications

Strategy is everything. Your Primary must stand out, and your Secondaries must specifically cater to the target school’s applicant profile. We take the time to understand your complete story, and then, discuss approaches to best showcase your narrative. That’s what makes us unique.

A School List

Creating a personalized list is essential to maximizing your acceptance chances, and much more than statistics, location, and applicant profile must be considered when making this decision.


The interview can make or break an application. We’ll start with the basics and fully prepare you for your interview day through several one-on-one interview preparation workshops followed by school-specific mock interviews.

The Committee

This process may seem superficially straightforward, but there are several important nuances to navigate. If your academic institution provides a Committee Letter, we will guide you as you request this crucial document.
