Road to Acceptance

The only program you'll ever need for IN DEPTH guidance while applying to medical school without paying thousands of $$!

Tell me if this sounds familiar...

> You've been struggling with your personal statement because every time you sit down to write you get overwhelmed with writer's block. 

> You can't figure out how to formulate your activities descriptions, you're confused on what to put, and you feel like there isn't enough space.

> You want to "cast a wide net", but don't know how to determine which medical schools to apply to and how to figure out if it's worth the cost of applying. 

> There are so many little details you didn't see coming. You want to figure out the application timeline and submit when the cycle opens, but you're not sure how. 

And on top of all that, you have all the doubts in the world because maybe you have low stats or you've applied before and lost hope, or you just think about the crazy amount of other premed students that apply each year and the imposter syndrome runs wild.

Can you imagine...

  • Knowing exactly where to start when you sit down to write your personal statement. Not only that, but your 1st draft only needs a few tweaks and revisions because it already convincingly conveys your "why medicine". 

  • Being excited to write your activities descriptions because after doing the work to nail down your "why", you realize it's actually really fun to share your story. Long gone are the worries of whether your story is unique, because you know for a fact it is!

  • You learn all the nitty gritty details of the application process so you are actually able to successfully apply early, make a rock solid school list, and easily submit 20+ secondaries ON TIME!

  • ALL the factors above culminate into you applying to medical school and giving yourself the BEST chance of success. Fall rolls around, you get multiple interview invites, and eventually get offered your first medical school acceptance! 

If any of this sounds like a dream, I want you to know that it is 100% possible for you. I've been exactly where you are now and had all the doubts in the world when I had to apply to medical school a 2nd time, with 5 C's on my application, and an institutional action. I ignored the doubts though, improved every aspect of my application that was in my control, and was rewarded with 10 acceptances the second time around. So I know if I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

If you're ready to go from feeling overwhelmed to confident & crushing it, but you need someone who's been there done that to guide the way...

I created Road to Acceptance just for you!

Road to Acceptance helps premed students who are applying this cycle achieve their #1 goal: getting into medical school. By breaking down the details of the application process and providing actionable guidance on how to nail down your "why medicine", this course will help you go from clueless to confident next cycle.

"I would recommend Road to Acceptance to anyone who just feels lost and hopeless about the process because that’s definitely how I felt. I have such a better grasp on the process just after two modules and I was worried I was going to be too rushed taking this class so close the cycle, but I already feel so much more confident about it."

"Road to Acceptance literally shows you EVERYTHING you need to know about the medical school application process. Maggie is so helpful by taking you through each step without skipping a single detail. Also, she has examples for personal statements, extracurriculars, etc. that help to get the ball rolling on your own brainstorming. RTA answers every question you have about the med school app process, and even answers questions that you didn’t know you have. Thus far in the application cycle, nothing has been a surprise because I have RTA to keep me ahead of the game. I especially enjoyed the “homework” and worksheets that Maggie created so that we could stay accountable and make sure that we were ready to submit our app in a timely manner. I couldn’t survive applying to med school without RTA and Maggie!

My name is Maggie, I'm 26 years old, and I'm a first year medical student at the University of Colorado! 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!
