Be Memorable. Get Accepted.
By viewing the admissions process from the student perspective, not to mention editing thousands of essays, we have identified the patterns that make certain students memorable and competitive. This allows us to give high-quality, unique feedback this is specific to you…
Our system is unique in that it ensures that every essay is reviewed by two different experts. We do this to eliminate bias and provide high-quality feedback, specific edits, and advice tailored to your individuality as an applicant…
We were pre-meds 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…
What others are saying...
Honestly, I was skeptical at first. All other sites offered a single grammar review for like $199. All I can say is that I am blown away by their reviews. Not only do they comment, but they help you revise. I am very happy with this gem of a service.
The Motivate MD team helped me turn my mediocre personal statement draft to a personal statement that stood out. A reason was provided with every suggestion that was made, so you feel guided the whole way. If you need help with yours, I wouldn’t hesitate using the service Motivate MD provides. You won’t be let down!
I was hesitant on whether I needed my essay reviewed, but this service really put my essay, and what I wanted to include, into perspective. They didn’t just give comments, but suggestions on how to fix problem areas. I recommend to everyone!

Who Will Be Reviewing My Essay(s)?
Our carefully-selected editing team is currently made up of medical students who have completed our rigorous screening, application, and training process. 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.
These experts have edited and perfected countless personal statements, AMCAS activity essays, and secondary essay and approach every essay with focus and attention to detail, ultimately ensuring consistent, high-quality results for every aspiring doctor. Not to mention, by experiencing the medical school admissions process first-hand, 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.
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 1-3 business days. We strive for timely delivery, however, quality and effectiveness are our main priorities.
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 that 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 essays, will help eliminate bias and will ensure your essays resonate with the entire admissions committee.
How do I Submit My Essay(s)?

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.

Just give us any information you can during the checkout process to help us optimize our reviews to fit your specific situation!
