About Me

Hey there! My name is Maggie, a big dreamer with a passion for chasing my never ending lofty goals. I first applied to medical school during the 2017 application cycle and legit had no idea what I was doing.

I figured out what I needed to do to take the MCAT, but the whole application process was still just a big jumble of confusion.

I managed to apply (albeit late) to four schools, got 1 interview at Case Western, got waitlisted and never ended up getting pulled off the waitlist.

Fast-forward three years later and I found all of Dr. Gray’s AMAZING and insanely helpful advice, got my butt into gear, took the MCAT again because my first one expired (!!), and reapplied.

The second time around I applied to 28 schools, got 15 interview invites, and TEN acceptances. I am truly humbled and grateful because it seemed like the one goal l would never reach (I had a low GPA AND an institutional action).

Anyway, now it is my mission to help you all have the same success!

I live in Washington with my wonderful boyfriend, George, and sweet pup, Oakley. I currently work as a nanny/tutor (bc I needed to save more money for school than working as an EMT allowed!) and at the moment have NO idea what school we will end up choosing!

So far my top choices are University of Colorado, University of Cincinnati, and Wake Forest. So cross your fingers for me that I get some great scholarships!!
