Unbiased Essay Editing

Our system is unique in that it ensures that your essays are reviewed by at least two talented editors with diverse backgrounds. We do this to eliminate bias and provide specific feedback and advice tailored to your individuality as an applicant.​

Medical School Masters

Our rigorous application/screening process leaves us with only the finest core editing team of physicians and medical students that represent the top 5% of all applicants. Reviewing countless essays has allowed us to identify the patterns that make certain students more memorable and competitive.

Affordable Reviews

We were pre-meds once too, so we set out to make our services something you can actually afford! We found it crazy that most other review services charge $350 for 1 school’s medical school secondary application essay.

FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers about our services.

Our carefully-selected editing team is currently made up of physicians and medical students who have completed our rigorous screening, application, and training process.  Some of our editors have either sat on admissions committees or have contributed in some capacity to admissions at their school.  It’s critical for your essays to be viewed from multiple different perspectives, so we make it a priority to have a very diverse team of editors.

In order to be an editor for Motivate MD, the person needs to check off two boxes. 1. They were accepted and currently attend or graduated from medical school. 2. They have an expertise for English writing.  Both a medical student and physician can check off those boxes. We strongly believe that just because someone is a physician does not mean they are qualified to review essays.

That being said, we do have a few physicians a part of our team who are extremely talented. We primarily like to have medical students be editors for one simple reason: They are closer to the medical school application process.

This can vary depending on the time of the year (there is a huge influx of essays from late May through August), but we always have a team goal to get reviews back to people within 48 hours. We have a guarantee of a 2-3 day turnaround. We strive for timely delivery, however, quality and effectiveness are our main priorities.

We find it essential to have at least 2 of our talented editors review your essay. Many other review services will just have one person look over your essay, but we have found that this leads to a biased perception, and ultimately, a minimally effective essay. 

Motivate MD takes a different approach. Having at least 2 trained editors review your essay, will help eliminate bias and will ensure your essay resonates with the entire admissions committee.

After you purchase a review package, you will get an email with what the next steps are. All drafts and reviews are sent within the Premed App.

You will receive a confirmation email for your purchase (check your trash/spam folders, if you don’t see it after a day) that outlines the immediate next steps in our review process. 

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, PA school, 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!
