The Complete AMCAS Course ($220 off a la carte videos)

Everything you need to know about creating a competitive AMCAS application.

How will your medical school application stand out among the other 40,000 applicants?

In the Complete AMCAS Course, Dr. Miller details every insider tip she’s learned over 15 years as an admissions expert about how to fill out an exceptional AMCAS application, the primary application for allopathic (MD) schools in the United States.

Well less than half of those who apply to MD schools gain admission. And it’s not just because they had low GPAs or MCAT scores. Sure, you’ve probably put in a ton of hard work as a pre-med both inside and outside of the classroom. Maybe you have compiled hundreds of hours of research, served the disadvantaged, led your peers, and gained valuable clinical experience. But that’s not enough to get in! Now you have to create a compelling narrative that flows through your entire application to set you apart. And you have to avoid making common mistakes that can cause AMCAS to return your application (yes, they can do that) or have it thrown in the reject pile by admissions committees. Application skills are an art, and this is exactly the art you will learn from MDadmit Academy’s Complete AMCAS Course.

You may know a bit about the AMCAS. You probably know you have to write a personal statement and fill out a section listing accomplishments. But do you know you have to enter every school where you have taken a post-secondary school course even if it wasn’t for credit? Do you know the difference between a committee, advisor, and individual letter of evaluation? How about how to best ask for recommendations and where to send them? Have you thought about your school list? How will you decide where to apply? Are you worried about an institutional action against you and don’t know how to address it? Do you think you qualify for disadvantaged status but aren’t sure? How will you choose your most meaningful entries in the work and activities section? And back to that personal statement – how are you going to describe your interest in medicine in a way that intrigues an overworked admissions committee member? The Complete AMCAS Course answers all of these questions and more.

In over seven hours of video, you will learn:

  • How to craft a compelling narrative that runs through the application
