When Did You Decide To Be a Doctor?

BS_MD_Admsssions_Consultant_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

I often ask my BS/MD admissions clients: When did you decide to be doctor?

BS_MD_Programs_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert

As my team and I develop our admissions strategies, we believe that it’s important to understand when and or what event in their lives inspired them to choose to become a physician.

Many of our BS/MD admissions clients decided from elementary school that they wanted to be a doctor.  What is quite interesting is that, in many cases, neither parents are doctors.  They were very interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and they truly wanted to help people.

In high school, they chose to apply via the direct combined BS/MD route because they were fully committed to the idea of pursuing a medical career, and a combined program seemed like the best of both worlds.  They definitely were committed to a future medical career and wanted to eliminate the uncertainty and stress during their undergraduate years that accompanies the medical school application process.  However, for many other applicants, following the traditional route of pursuing a bachelor’s degree and completing your pre-medical requirements before applying to medical school makes more sense than attending a combined BS/MD program.

When parents contact us, they describe their children as having top notch high school credentials, including GPA, test scores, a challenging curriculum and an array of extracurricular activities (including volunteer service, research, and clinical shadowing). Some already have 3-page resumes. To me, they all sound almost exactly alike on paper and are missing key components and factors that make them stand out. Please read Dr. Lowe’s blog: High School Juniors: Time To Get Serious About BS/MD Plans – Part II

Our view is that if a student has decided from elementary school to be a doctor why take the chance (why take the RISK) to make mistakes that will possibly prevent their dream? Why risk your child’s future?

BS/MD Programs that Accept International and H4 Visa Students – 2021

BS_MD_Admissions_Programs_H4_International_Students_Dr_Paul_Lowe

Each year, my offices receive calls and emails from parents of international students and parents who presently have H1B visas whose high school students have H4 visas who wish to become U.S. medical doctors through BS/MD programs.

As a result, we have developed a specialty helping these students navigate the college admissions and specifically the hypercompetitive BS/MD admissions process.

Based on my professional experience as a BS/MD admissions advisor, and long-term professional relationships with admissions officers and administrators, here is a current list of BS/MD programs that will consider reviewing applications of international and H4 Visa students:

  • Boston University Seven-Year Liberal Arts/Medical Education Program
  • Brown University Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME)
  • Case Western Reserve University Pre-Professional Scholars Program in Medicine
  • Howard University BS/MD
  • Pennsylvania State University Accelerated Premedical-Medical Program
  • Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program (MSP)
  • Rutgers University-Newark BA/MD
  • SUNY Upstate Accelerated Scholars Program
  • University of Connecticut Special Program in Medicine
  • University Rochester – Rochester Early Medical Scholars (REMS)

Working with international and H4 visa high school students who desire to matriculate to BS/MD programs is a very involved, comprehensive and long-term process.  My team and I must clearly understand student goals, continuously help students with their applications and develop successful admissions strategies. After all, we know the value of becoming a licensed U.S. medical doctor!

High school juniors and parents of high school juniors should read this blog: High School Students – Time To Get Serious About BS/MD Plans Part II.

It’s very important to avoid the risks and potential mistakes that will cause you to be rejected from BS/MD programs. After all your hard work, do you really want to make mistakes?  Mistakes that can occur in your junior year, senior year and/or on your college applications?

High School Juniors: Time To Get Serious About BS/MD Plans – Part II

BS_MD_Programs_High School_Junior_Planning_Dr_Paul_Lowe
junior_year_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

If you are a high school junior or your son or daughter is a high school junior and you are thinking about applying to direct BS/MD programs, it’s time to get really serious about either planning or implementing your plans.  With about 3 months left of your junior year, there is no time to waste!  You will need to avoid common mistakes as well as obscure omissions. In addition, it is important to polish your existing student profile. You may think it’s great, however, it must measure up or be better that the 95% of applicants that will be rejected.

As students (even with the help of their parents) prepare for the college admissions process, they read books, look at videos or visit college forum-type websites which they believe may provide personalized answers for them.  These sources provide information that everyone else can see, but not customized strategies to help your child avoid mistakes.

Mistakes_College_Admissions_DHigh School Juniors Time to Get Serious About College Admissions_Paul_Lowe_Independent_Educational_Consultant

Many parents who call us (and whose children are performing the above and have the “perfect” BS/MD profile) then believe that their child is a shoo-in for BS/MD programs and just need “some” advice.

Here’s a list of factors by admissions expert, Dr. Paul Lowe that you should consider if you are a junior seriously thinking about applying to BS/MD programs.

  1. Student CHARACTER – Personality counts! What’s your “je ne sais quoi”?
  2. The HOOK – If you don’t have a hook, the admissions committee will not grab you!
  3. The STORY – It’s all about the story and how it’s framed and presented! No good story, no acceptance!  Certain rejection!
  4. Common Application: PERSONAL STATEMENT – Meaningful, well-written and convincing personal statement needed. No flow, harmony, tone combined with gravitas – rejection!
  5. COLLEGE-SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENTALS – You must complement and synergize your supplementals with your personal statement. All the school-specific essays are important, even the 50 word-count answers! Students have been rejected because of mistakenly using one word or a sentence in 50 word-count essays!
  6. COLLEGE-SPECIFIC-BS/MD ESSAYS – The “Why doctor essay?” “I want to help people”. Everyone in the service industry does that!
  7. COLLEGE APPLICATION VIDEO ESSAY – Schools are seriously viewing these videos. Did we say Brown PLME? Check out our College Admissions Video Productions partnership.
  8. The effective and bold RESUME – It’s not just about a 2–3-page resume with lots of research and extracurricular activities which is just a list. It has to be framed correctly or it looks boring and generic!
  9. EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES – Are your extracurricular activities meaningless or meaningful? Do they really interconnect to your student profile in a meaningful way? Have you become the jack-of-all extracurricular activities? The master of none? Are you a drive-by extracurricular activities person?
  10. VOLUNTEERISM – It’s not just about tutoring underprivileged children, participating in an ESVE (Expensive Summer Volunteer Activity) or starting your own nonprofit organization. There is more to volunteering than just volunteering!!!
  11. WOW FACTOR – What’s your WOW Factor? How and when can you use it to WOW admissions? You want the admissions committee to say “WOW! We want this applicant on our campus.”
  12. INTERVIEWS – You may be seemingly be all that on paper; grades, SATs recommendations, volunteering to save the world, 1000 hours of shadowing, however, one incorrect word or statement in an interview results in a rejection – That’s right, just one!
  13. ETIQUETTE – Think that doesn’t matter? Think that’s old-school? Think again! Are you mindful of how you present yourself and how people perceive you? It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it!  Etiquette matters! We provide personalized etiquette strategies for our clients.
  14. MANNERS – When you say something (or write something) what counts is not what you mean but how you are heard and perceived.  Are you mindful of your manners?  Manners matters! Do you know when or if you sound rude, pretentious, impolite, disrespectful, unrefined or worse – uncultivated?
  15. WHO ARE YOU? – What are your values? What do you stand for? Can you define you? Why are you different? Are you aware how you perceives you?
  16. DIVERSITY – What’s your diversity intelligence? What’s the meaning of diversity to you? It’s not just a word to be used throughout an essay. It’s not just about being a member of your school’s diversity club. Colleges seek students who truly understand the meaning of diversity. Diversity matters!
  17. UNCONSCIOUS BIAS – It may occur at any time, at any level or at any stage during your admissions process. Can you identify it? How must you successfully deal with it? How do you overcome it for successful admissions decisions?
  18. UNIVERSITY PRIORITIES – Colleges are not accepting applicants for just top grades and their perceived amazing resumes and achievements, they are continually adjusting and building diverse campus communities and future global networks based on geopolitics, geo-economics and their financials. School admissions policies and institutional priorities change year to year and region to region to match their goals. What makes you believe that you know these policies and priorities better than a boutique admissions firm that has superior access to current information and admissions trends?
  19. The KNOW-HOW. So, you really believe it’s just (1-18)? You need the Know How: How do you do the right-things the right-way and with the right-people at the right-time?  Our proprietary-knowledge, unmatched experience, admissions success and years of close working relationships with admissions professionals ensures that you do it right!

So you really believe that factors 13-18 are unimportant? Think again!

If you know how to plan, develop and implement (1-19) and how they are used in BS/MD admissions – that’s wonderful!!! But if you don’t, there is an increased probability that you (and your child) will make irrevocable mistakes that will cause instant rejections to all schools. Would you want this to happen after your years of planning as a parent and your child’s hard work?

The parents who retain Dr. Paul Lowe and his team of consultants may take risks in business and investments, but not risks in their children’s educational future – to become a medical doctor. The ones who do take risks in their children’s education – 95% of them bet WRONG!

Why take on RISKS in your child’s educational journey and career future?

H4 Visa and BS/MD Programs

BS_MD_Admissions_H4-Visa_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Educational_Consultant

What is the H4 Visa? H4 Visa or H4 dependent visa is the US visa category given to the spouse and children (under 21 years of age) of all H visa holders such as H1B Visa, H1B1 Visa, H2A, H2B and H3.  The H4 visa is treated as dependent visa, meaning its validity and status are tied to the primary H visa holder.

Year after year, we work with high school students who have H4 visa status seeking admissions to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs. All of these students that we work with are top students. However, because of their visa status, they are restricted (requirement: U.S. citizen or permanent resident) from applying to certain BS/MD programs, but not Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities. One top BS/MD program that accepts H4 visa students is Brown PLME.

If your child has a dependent H4 visa they can go to college without a change in their visa status. There are a few exceptions to the case, but if you are worried about applying for the student visa (F1) to study, don’t worry, it is possible to enroll in a college or school on a dependent visa.

Dr. Lowe and his team work with international students and students with H4 visas and from time to time will consult with immigration attorneys regarding their client’s immigration status and its relationship to their admissions process.  As a result, Dr. Lowe has been quite successful in placing H4 and international students in Ivy League, highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs.

Dr. Paul Lowe’s Admissions Advice – Priceless

Priceless__Price_tag_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admission_Advice_Educational_Consultant

My clients have been stating that my admissions advice is priceless.  I never truly equated my services with a price.  I have always considered it as an investment in a child’s education.

Future_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisors_Independent_Educational_Consultant_IEC
Investing in your child’s future!

This week, I received a phone call from a mom who is a lawyer and partner of a major international investment banking firm. She eventually disclosed that she was my client 19 years ago when her parents hired me for private school admissions (she was admitted to Andover) and for college admissions (she was admitted to Harvard).  She needed help with her son for Kindergarten placement in a prestigious private day school (By the way, she met her husband while they were both sophomores at Harvard).

I believe she recognized the potential generational effect of such an investment in her child’s educational future…PRICELESS!

Every parent wants the best for their child!

Since HPME will not be accepting applications in 2021, the competition to gain admissions into BS/MD programs will now increase because there will be fewer programs.

“Your BS/MD Admissions Game Plan” is a blog series created by Dr. Paul Lowe that discusses BS/MD Admissions.  With such a competitive environment and the immeasurable value and benefits of BS/MD programs, the need for an admissions game plan is ESSENTIAL.

At BS/ MD Admissions, we discern that many students and parents are clueless about what to do, when to do it, where to do it, who to contact, and why do it.  They fail to discover what they are doing that’s wrong, or they discover what they’ve been doing is wrong when it’s too late! They depend on books (with obsolete information), or free consultations (hoping that they will gather valuable advice – you get what you pay for).

We provide valuable, real-time, client specific and trusted advice based on our proprietary-knowledge, insight and foresight to increase our clients’ chances of admissions. Most importantly, we provide – RESULTS

It’s A New Admissions Year – 2021

2021_admissions_with_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Independent_Educational_Consultant_Advisor

Happy New Year! Welcome to Dr. Paul Lowe Admissions Expert Blog – 2021

Happy-new-year_2021_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

The past year has been full of uncertainty. As a consequence of the myriad of transitions, changes, adjustments and adaptations, now there’s a whole new admissions world. Education has moved from in-person to online learning and there has been an increase in the number of applications to top private day and boarding schools, Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs! The College Board recently announced that it is eliminating the SAT subject tests and optional essay-writing section!

The one constant we have observed last year and the beginning of this year, is that parents want the best education for their children whether it’s K-12, college or graduate school.

As families navigate through these extraordinary and unparalleled admissions times, having an expert who can help make objective decisions is invaluable. As experts, we understand the fluctuating landscape and degrees of complexity in the current admissions scenarios so that students can avoid mistakes, stay focused and attain successful admissions decisions. Our knowledge-intelligence that results in our admissions success involves our ability to plan, to know how to adjust and when to change effectively.

Following last year’s admissions season, we heard from many parents and school counselors whose students applied ED to the Ivies and were rejected, yet we have clients who were accepted ED to Harvard, Yale, Brown, UPenn, Columbia and Cornell. And our Brown PLME acceptance rate was just amazing!  Brown PLME: Early Decision Results

Year after year, parents and fellow consultants ask us, what’s your secret? How do you provide stellar admissions results? It’s actually quite simple and conspicuously obvious….We are DIFFERENT!

Dr. Lowe and his team collectively, through their insight, foresight, proprietary- knowledge, wisdom and confidence, choose the best admissions strategies to be applied prudently for the best decision results – That’s our secret!

This year, many parents will be extremely happy because they will use our SECRET!

Each year, admissions policies and strategies change, so stay tuned for my upcoming, informative, helpful and thought-provoking admissions blogs!
