Be Memorable.  Get Accepted.  Choose Us…

Admissions Experts

By viewing the admissions process from both the student and committee member’s perspective, not to mention editing thousands of essays, we have identified the patterns that make certain students memorable and competitive…


Our system is unique in that it provide two full reviews from different experts to provide unbiased, high-quality feedback, specific edits, and advice tailored to your individuality as an applicant…

Affordable Price

We were students once too, so we set out to make our service something you can actually afford!  We found it ridiculous that most other review services charge anywhere from $300 to $1,000 (for 1 basic review by 1 person) and lack the personalized approach we take when reviewing each and every personal statement…


Do You Only Review Medical School Essays?


The short answer is no.  Although we started by reviewing only medical school application essays, we have been able to cater our editing secrets to make any essay memorable.  We have helped those applying to medical residencies, dental school, nursing school, and grad/law school, create very effective and unique essays.  Just give us any information you can during the checkout process to help us optimize our reviews to fit your specific situation!

Who Will Be Reviewing My Essay(s)?


Our editors are currently medical students who have served on admissions committees and have edited and perfected countless personal statements, AMCAS activity essays, and secondary essays. By experiencing both sides of the medical school admissions process, they have cultivated a deep understanding for what exactly resonates with committee members and developed a novel approach on how admissions essays are ultimately presented. They approach every essay with focus and attention to detail, ultimately ensuring consistent, high-quality results for every aspiring doctor.

What Do You Mean By 2-For-1 Reviews?


We find it essential to have at least 2 of our extremely talented editors review each essay.  Many other review services will just have one person look over your essay(s), but we have found this leads to a biased perception, and ultimately, a minimally effective essay.  But Motivate MD takes a different approach.  Having at least 2 trained editors review your essay(s), will help eliminate bias and will ensure your essay(s) resonate(s) with the entire admissions committee.

How do I Submit My Essay(s)?


During the checkout process you will have the option to either: 1. Attach a file of  your essay(s) 2. Copy/Paste your essay into a text box.  If you somehow forgot to do this during checkout, you can always just email it to:

How Do I Know If I Submitted My Essay(s) Correctly?


After purchasing a package, you will be directed to a “Thank-You Page” that outlines the next steps in the process.  You also should have received a confirmation email for your purchase (Check your trash/spam folders, if you don’t see it after a day).  I can assure you that we have received your essay and are in the process of reviewing it 🙂

When Should I Expect My Essay Review To Be Completed?


This can vary depending on the time of the year (there is a huge influx of essays from late May through August), but you should expect at least 1 completed review within 2-5 business days.  We strive for timely delivery, however, quality and effectiveness are our main priorities.

Now Reviewing More Than Just Personal Statements…

Personal Statement

Possibly the single most important aspect of your application.  Many pre-meds fail to effectively communicate their story in a memorable way. Let us help!

Extracurricular Essays

A lot of pre-meds overlook the importance of extracurricular essays which ends up hurting their chances of acceptance.  It’s critical to ensure that these essays resonate with admissions committee members…

Secondary Essays

Secondary essay are not only a huge opportunity to be a stand-out applicant, they are one of the most lasting and personal aspects of your application.  Schools give you these essays for a reason! Make sure they’re not overlooked…

But c’mon, are medical school application essays really THAT important?

In recent years the number of applications has skyrocketed, making acceptance into medical school more and more competitive.  To combat this, admissions committee have turned to weighing application essays heavily when evaluating applicants and select new students.  You simply can’t afford to leave them to chance!  More pre-meds are getting accepted the first time by using review services and submitting more memorable essays…”

Don’t just take our word for it…

“I have had admissions committee members from Harvard Medical School, Stanford Medicine, and Northwestern Feinberg comment on how well-written my AMCAS Activities were. I attribute this success to Motivate MD’s individualized attention.
