be memorable. get accepted.
We'd love to meet you and help you find your perfect package.
By viewing the admissions process from the student perspective we have identified the patterns that make certain students memorable and competitive. This allows us to give you high-quality, unique feedback.
Our system is unique in that it ensures that your initial essay is reviewed by two different experts. We do this to eliminate bias and provide specific edits and advice tailored to your individuality as an applicant…
We were pre-meds once too, so we set out to make our services 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).
what others are saying...
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 made by them. I felt guided the whole way.
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.
I wasn’t sure on whether or not I needed my essay reviewed. I’m glad I chose to get this service because it put my essay and what I wanted to include into perspective. I recommend to everyone!

Most frequent questions and answers about our services.
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.
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.
We find it essential to have 2 of our talented editors review your initial draft. 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 2 trained editors review your first draft, will help eliminate bias and will ensure your essay resonates with the entire admissions committee.
All drafts after your initial will be reviewed by 1 editor and you will get your review back within 2-5 business days.
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 service process.
All essay submissions and communication will take place through a message thread on our website. This makes it easy to communicate directly with our editors and track when your reviews are finished. Specific details regarding where to find this message thread will be given to you after you purchase a package!
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!
