Increasing applications from the U.S.

In the sixteen years since its inception, AdmissionsEssays has been helping students craft and edit memorable personal statements & letters of recommendations.

Many times, it's not just luck.

Impeccable grades and test scores alone are no longer enough to set students apart from the crowd.

Sometimes the hardest subject to write about is yourself.

Schulich Medicine no longer has prerequisite courses. A mixture of biological/medical science courses and social science/humanities courses is recommended.

Our editors have reviewed thousands of essays.

Effective July 1, 2017, for the 2017-18 application cycle, all applicants must have written the MCAT test introduced in April 2015. Test scores from the previous version of the MCAT test will no longer be valid.

There is still no better way to introduce yourself than through an admission essay.
