I wrote this article on creating a strong med school application at the request of the Harvard Crimson.
You’d love to put together a med school application so strong—that it both gets you in, and gets you money to help pay for med school.
Other students are accomplishing this—you can too.
Do you know the one specific principle that can take an average, dull med school application, and make it so outstanding—so riveting—that it inspires med schools not just to let you in, but to give you money to help pay for med school as well?
Building your application around this one specific principle works—even if you have lower grades and test scores.
Learn this one specific principle, and you can completely revolutionize the content of your med school application.
How do I know this?
Because I’m a professional academic strategist, and I’ve been helping students get into med school for 25 years at my website, getintomedschool.com.
Here, in a nutshell, is my best med school application advice.
In your main med school application essay, focus your efforts on constructing a flawlessly well-reasoned argument in your own behalf.
(I use the word “argument,” but of course I would never want you to sound argumentative. I want you to sound warm, and personal, and human—no question about that.)
In your med school application, think of yourself as a lawyer arguing the most important case of your career.
To do this effectively, you’ll need to know the three component parts of argument that lawyers use when arguing cases in court.
The three component parts of argument start with the letters E, A, and C.
Neglect just one of these three components, and your med school application will feel weak and unconvincing—no matter how many times you rewrite it.
Weave these three components together effectively, though—and you’ll have the med school admissions committee saying, “Wow. This makes absolutely perfect sense. I don’t even have a question about this. It’s totally clear to me that this person should be in medical school.”
If the med school application you have now is not getting this reaction, you’ve missed the boat and you need help.
You didn’t learn about argument at this level while you were in undergrad? That’s OK—most people don’t learn about creating argument at this level unless they get to the third year of law school.
(If you’re thinking of hiring a consultant that can’t explain what E, A, and C are—run away and don’t look back.)
I can give you inexpensive help with this right now—today.
Read on, and then watch the fast-paced 9-minute video below, and you’ll have everything you need to create a flawlessly well-reasoned, powerfully convincing med school personal statement so strong that it can also get you money to help pay for your education.
Hi, I’m Jeannie Burlowski.
I’m a professional academic strategist who—for over 25 years—has been helping med school applicants like you get the “Wow!” reaction they’re most hoping for.
In recent years I’ve become known for the book I wrote, LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward—but helping med school applicants is where I got my start—and it’s still my favorite thing I do every day.
You’re a med school applicant? You’re exactly who I most love to help.
My client list is full of successful med school applicants who came to me worrying that their grades and MCAT scores weren’t high enough—or that they had nothing interesting to say in their med school application essays.
I helped every one of them get the “Wow!” reaction, and today—right here—I’m going to help you too.
No matter who you are, you can put together a “Wow!” med school application.
If you’ve been struggling with this—if you feel like you’re pounding on a door you can’t get open—I can give you the keys that make the lock turn easily and the door swing open wide.
I can help you right now—today.
You won’t have to wait. You won’t have to make an appointment. You won’t have to buy a consulting package from anyone.
Here’s what you’ll need to know to get my help right now.
Normally, I do provide one-on-one consulting that helps students like you create med school application essays that get the “Wow!”
This year, though—due to the pandemic of 2020, the closure of universities, and the ongoing scarcity of pre-med advising—my spots for consulting clients filled fast starting last winter and are almost entirely full at this point. There’s more demand for what I do than I can possibly meet.
So here’s our workaround.
Get my help this way—and save yourself a boatload of money.
I have a 3-hour video class that teaches students to write one brilliant, highly persuasive scholarship application essay—and then use that essay over and over again to apply for more than 100 scholarships throughout college and med school.
This 3-hour video class contains all my best, most powerful “Wow!” application essay writing strategies—including my extensive instruction on how to use a lawyer’s “E, A, and C” principles to write application essays.
You’ll also learn a new essay structure—one that beats “introduction-body-conclusion” hands down.
Take this 3-hour video class and you’ll learn why the strongest application essays throw the old “introduction–body–conclusion” essay structure out the window.
Why? Because that’s an informative essay structure that doesn’t work for persuasion.
I’ll teach you a different structure, one that works far better for an application essay. A structure that makes room for all your greatest accomplishments without ever sounding scattered, disorganized, or disjointed.
In the short video below, I explain how to use my video class to create all your med school application essays on your own.
Watch the free, short video below right now, and then forward this article on to a medical or grad school applicant you care about.
Forward this article on to your parents and ask them to pay for my 3-hour video class for you.
And what if you get stuck while crafting your med school application essays on your own?
I offer one free 50-minute phone consultation to anyone who asks. Request your free consultation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh—and one other thing! Use the powerfully convincing essay I help you write to apply for scholarships.
Take the med school application personal statement that my 3-hour video class helps you craft, tweak it, and use it over and over again to apply for 100 different scholarships to pay for the rest of undergrad, and pay for med school.
Here’s how you’ll use my 3-hour video class to craft a powerfully convincing med school application personal statement:

Do you have younger siblings?
I provide clear, step-by-step help to parents who want to get kids ages 12–18 through college debt-free—without relying on scholarships.
I do this primarily through the book I wrote:
(Guess where I got all the good ideas in this book? From talking to med school applicants for 25 years!)
LAUNCH is a reference book, so nobody reads the whole thing all at once—but even if they did, it would only take 7 hours.
Parents pick out what they need to read in this book using the fast-paced, 10-minute video instructions here.
More than 90 reviews of this book have been posted on Amazon at:
Your parents can find out why financial advising professionals love LAUNCH, here.
They can see the top 9 questions parents are asking me about LAUNCH, here.
Parents who read just one chapter of LAUNCH every 1–3 months while their kids are in middle school and high school find out every viable debt-free college strategy at exactly the right time to implement it.
And if all the kids in your family are already well past middle school? That’s OK. Your parents can run to catch up. But the process of getting kids through college debt-free goes more smoothly the earlier parents start it—especially if they’re not planning to save up any money to pay for college.
