Primary Application Consulting Service for the AMCAS, AACOMAS, or TMDSAS Applications
The primary application to United States medical schools is processed through a centralized application service. For all allopathic medical schools in the US except those in Texas, this centralized service is the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). For Texas medical schools, the centralized application service is the Texas Medical & Dental School Applications Service (TMDSAS). For all osteopathic medical schools in the US, the centralized service is the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS). These centralized application services process your application and send it to the individual medical schools you choose to apply to. The AMCAS, TMDSAS, and AACOMAS applications have several components including the personal information section, the activities section, and most importantly the medical school personal statement (statement of purpose). The medical school personal statement is where you have the opportunity to make a convincing argument for why you should be accepted to medical school among many competitive applicants. It is your chance to communicate with the medical school admissions committee.
Admissions Helpers was a huge asset in getting me into the medical school of my dreams. They were patient, knowledgeable, and immensely helpful. I highly recommend those who are looking for an extra boost in the admissions process to discuss the options that Admissions Helpers offers.
AMCAS, AACOMAS, and TMDSAS Application Services
We work closely with applicants on the AMCAS, AACOMAS, and TMDSAS applications and personal statement. Our medical school admissions consultants help you develop an outline for your personal statement and assist you in building the content for a wining essay. We help you articulate your reasons for your interest in medicine and your competitiveness for medical school through unique reflection on your experiences. We also work with you to highlight your most important activities and present them professionally on the AMCAS, AACOMAS, or TMDSAS application. Our medical school admissions consultants also have experience helping you select which medical schools to apply to. Our specific services include:
Personal Statement Idea Development
If you have not started writing your personal statement, our consultants are prepared to help you develop the necessary content for a strong medical school personal statement. This service includes an initial review of your personal and professional background, and a consultation on how to present yourself as a strong candidate based on your background. Our medical school admissions consultants will work with you to develop the outline for your personal statement, help you decide which ideas to include, and assist you in building the necessary ideas.
Personal Statement Editing
If you have written your medical school personal statement (on your own or with our help), we assist you in modifying it, and reducing the length to fit the character limit. At this stage, our consultants can provide you with written or oral (depending on the client’s preference) feedback on your personal statement and grammatical/organizational edits to your essay.
Primary Application Assistance and Medical School Selection
Our consultants assist you in putting together other parts of your AMCAS/AACOMS/TMDSAS application, including the activities section. For the AMCAS application, we can help you decide which activities to choose as the three most meaningful and guide you as you elaborate on these meaningful experiences. We also help you decide which medical schools are right for you based on your GPA, MCAT scores, and additional experiences.
