Each year, Dr. Paul Lowe, BS/MD Admissions Guru works with four or five clients that don’t have perfect transcripts. They may have a couple B’s and even C’s. Last year, Dr. Lowe worked with five clients whose GPA weighted were below 3.5 and their SATs were below 1500 and they were accepted to BS/MD programs. Here are stats on one client: Female. South Asian descent (Indian American). Texas. GPA: 3.5 weighted. SAT scores: 1420. Result: She was admitted to two BS/MD programs.

So, what happened? How was she selected over other students who had nearly perfect SAT’s, high GPAs and shadowed multiple doctors and lots of community service? In her high school, the valedictorian, salutatorian and top 5 other students were rejected from all BS/MD programs and Ivies and several highly selective universities.

BS/MD programs are not seeking just extraordinary students or superstars. They are seeking students who are going to be great doctors. They are not seeking students who sound like everyone else! They value individuals with desirable characteristics in addition to your goals and achievements.

BS/MD program admissions officers evaluate applications with a fine-tooth comb which means that your entire student profile (freshman year to senior year) is reviewed. They seek to know your originality, cultural competence, deviations from the perceived norm/traditions, self-definition, honesty, attitude and other character attributes. In short, they seek to know who YOU are.

Review_of_BS_MD_Admissions_Officers_Dr_Paul_Lowe

Getting into BS/MD programs, however, is not just about who you are (or what your parents perceive that you should be) but about how you effectively tell your story (conveying your character and narrative). What it all comes down to is how you demonstrate your personal qualities, leadership, and commitment to your community through the application. This takes the form of the collective expression of honest and meaningful personal statements and essays, involved extracurricular activities, and descriptive recommendation letters that help the admissions officers determine whether to accept or reject you.  High-achieving students (and their parents) tend to mistakenly believe that their scores and grades are enough to win admissions to their desired schools.   

While it’s rare for someone with a 3.5 weighted GPA to get into a BS/MD program, it’s not impossible. Dr. Lowe spends weekly Skype sessions in helping his clients develop and demonstrate their personal trademark to admissions officers. While the odds are against you with a weak academic profile, over the years. Dr. Lowe has helped many students with poor GPA’s/grades and low SAT scores get into BS/MD programs.

How to Get Rejected from BS/MD Programs

Rejected_BS_MD_Admissions_Programs

As students fill out their college and BS/MD applications, they work meticulously on them to do everything right and impress the admissions offices and committees. However, as prospective students are trying to make their applications perfect, they may overlook certain aspects of their profiles, admission journeys and applications which could lead to rejections.

In the hypercompetitive BS/MD Admissions universe, having perfect grades, high SAT/ACT scores, while doing research and shadowing may help, but it won’t necessarily increase your chances to have a spot at BS/MD programs. I receive calls and emails from parents who really believe and want to confirm that they have done the right things the right way and haven taken all the steps to ensure that their children have a shot at BS/MD programs. They are usually mistaken!

I discover that they have made bad assumptions and egregious mistakes when they call me later that their children were: (1) Rejected from all BS/MD programs as well as Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities, (2) They were invited for BS/MD interviews but were later rejected. (3) They call us in the fall as their child is entering a super-safety school (because they were rejected from all, but that school).

Rejected_BS_MD_Programs_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational_Consultant_Admissions_Advisor

Three examples (they were not my clients) last year: (1) A valedictorian who applied to 19 schools (Ivy and BS/MD programs) and 2 safety schools was accepted to only 2 schools – her safety schools and now attends a safety. Result: Parents have now hired us for college admissions transfer. (2) A student (I must say here from Texas area) whose parents thought that she was a shoo-in to BS/MD programs, was rejected from all BS/MD programs and all colleges and decided to take a gap year! (3) A student applying to BS/MD programs – parents assured us that he shadowed with top physicians and had published. However, upon review of “Why Doctor” essays AND interviews major errors were found. The student was rejected from all BS/MD programs! In addition, the student was also rejected from Ivy League and highly selective schools because there were major errors on his Common Application!

Here are 30 ways how high school students and BS/MD applicants (and their parents) cause their own rejections!

  1. Follow what other students did the previous year.
  2. Follow advice from online platforms.
  3. Read books with obsolete advice.
  4. Hire an educational consultant who has no experience in BS/MD admissions.
  5. Assume that because you have great standardized test scores you have great shot.
  6. Assume that your school college counselor understands the nuances of BS/MD programs and medical school admissions.
  7. Hire multiple educational consultants in an attempt to get the lowest price.
  8. Have your parents or relatives write your Common Application and BS/MD supplemental essays.
  9. Your Common Application, essays, letters of recommendations and profile are disconnected.
  10. Your high school college counselor and/or teachers were unsupportive or did not write a strong letter of recommendation.
  11. Your applications are vague and generic.
  12. Your supplemental essays are disjointed and don’t answer the questions.
  13. Your application sounds just like ones on the internet (and therefore everyone else).
  14. You assume that admissions officers will not find errors in your application and narrative.
  15. You made mistakes during the undergraduate interview.
  16. You made mistakes during the alumnus/a interview
  17. You made mistakes during the medical school interview.
  18. You assume that other students in your class are not applying to BS/MD programs.
  19. You assume that the narrative you and/or your parents created will be believable by admissions officers.
  20. Your “Why Doctor Essay” was filled with why you can’t be a doctor or should not be a doctor.
  21. Your “connections” actually are the reasons why you will be rejected.
  22. You assume that because your parent or parents are physicians that they understand BS/MD admissions.
  23. You assume that you can game BS/MD admissions.
  24. You assume that there is no bias in college admissions.
  25. You assume that by talking with a student who is currently enrolled in a BS/MD program that you are in!
  26. You make mistakes involving etiquette, manners and attitude.
  27. You assume that winning multiple awards will get you in.
  28. You lack meaningful extracurricular activities.
  29. You underestimate consequences of the closings of BS/MD programs.
  30. You decide not to hire an expert with years of experience, contacts and proven acceptance rates – A BS/MD Admissions Guru because you believe it’s not worth it!

Congratulations! After following all the steps, you (or your parents) will be instrumental in causing your rejection from BS/MD programs as well as Ivy League colleges and universities and colleges with excellent pre-med programs.

Many parents gamble on their children’s futures. They underestimate the risks that will lead to rejections and overestimate the chances of success using antiquated generic strategies.

betting_college_admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Educational-Consultant

After years of preparation, intense studying, taking all those AP courses, hours of shadowing, writing papers (possibly publishing), violin recitals, dance competitions, team sports, volunteering, traveling, visiting hundreds of “how-to websites” and your parents saying that you wanted to be a doctor since you were 5 years old – you use one or several or all the above steps and are outright rejected! My questions are always: Why would you? How could you? What were you thinking? The reason or answer to these questions: Students (and parents) actually believe that they know more than BS/MD Admissions Guru!

Navigating BS/MD Admissions: A New Playbook

College_BS-MD_Admissions_Playbook_Dr_Paul_Lowe
Private_School_Admissions_My_Child_Was_Not_Accepted_Rejected_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Independent_Educational_Consultant

Parents are facing the challenge of currently navigating the BS/MD admissions landscape. Incorrect decisions as to when, where and how to turn now results in shipwrecks: immediate rejection of their children after their years of planning. One incorrect extracurricular activity, one negative letter of recommendation, one incorrect sentence in an essay, one incorrect answer in an interview and one incorrect non-verbal cue and or perception will result in a REJECTION! It’s that competitive.

There are continuous fundamental shifts and uncertainty in BS/MD admissions. BS/MD programs are not just about high GPA and test scores, 3-5 page resumes, research and hours of shadowing. It’s now about the interrelated narrative of why you wish to be a doctor and how the student profile stands out, as well how it fits your narrative.

From what I have observed, parents are attempting to game the admissions landscape by using antiquated strategies from outdated books or visiting online communities which provide generic information. Even taking advice from last year’s accepted students can result in rejections!

The COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. economy, healthcare inequity, and student demographics and the number of BS/MD programs have changed the admissions landscape and even enrollment/admissions policies and goals at many schools. The recent closing of BS/MD programs is a testament to the changing landscape and will affect BS/MD admissions policies and goals.

College Admissions Advisors Complement/Augment High School Counselors

High school Counselor overwhelmed Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Advisor

While high school counselors provide college counseling, they often do not have the time to cater to the development or implementation of each student’s individual college plan and are usually not available on-call on the weekend and after school hours.

Guidance_counselor_College Admissions_Dr_Paul_Lowe

According to the National Association for College Admission Counseling:

High school counselors have a  large caseload, very often exceeding the American School Counselor Association’s recommended student to counselor of 250:1, and responsibilities that include attending to the academic and social/emotional issues of the student body.

On average, public school counselors spent 19 percent of their time on postsecondary counseling in 2018–2019, while their private school counterparts spent 31 percent of their time on college counseling

The best way to choose an educational consultant is on the basis of experience.

Dr. Lowe has over 23 years of experience in college admissions for students who are interested in applying to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs. He spends 100 percent of his time on helping each client!

Dr. Lowe and his team complement your school counselor’s efforts by working one-on-one with your child, customizing a winning admissions plan which will help your child get into their top choice colleges. Dr. Lowe is available not only during school hours, but after school, evenings and weekends via phone, email and remote consultations. By having one-on-one weekly or biweekly sessions, Dr. Lowe helps each individual client present their backgrounds and aspirations in the best positive light to admissions committees.

In developing our winning college admissions plan, Dr. Lowe works with students and their parents in carefully planning their courses and extracurricular activities (community service, employment, summer programs, internships, etc.), planning college visits, selecting the right teachers for the best letters of recommendations, developing a WOW factor, assisting with creating, brainstorming and editing personal statements and supplemental essays; developing college social media profile and brand.

Additionally, Dr. Lowe provides personalized, individualized attention and helps clients keep organized, stay motivated and meet deadlines throughout the application process. In many cases, overworked and overwhelmed high school counselors simply have too many students to give individual attention needed in the competitive admissions environment.
