Caryn made me feel so confident and supported throughout the challenging medical school application process. I could reach out at any time to make sure I was on track every step of the way. The ability to have someone who took the time to really get to know me and care about me as not just an applicant but a person was so important to me. I still call Caryn to just chat and catch up on life and I think that's a huge reflection on the type of person she is and the quality of relationships she has with her students. Not only did I receive help with picking my school list and navigating the confusing medical school application timeline, I also received help revising essays and even with mock interviews to make me feel totally prepared for every step of the process. I cannot recommend working with Caryn enough, I have already recommended her to countless friends. I am at my dream medical school now and am so grateful to have been able to work with Caryn to help me get here!

Working with Caryn throughout the medical school application process was the best decision I could have made. From the very first time I met her, I could tell she was truly dedicated to my goals and wanted to ensure I ended up at a school that would be the best fit for me. Not only is Caryn the sweetest person, but she is brilliant and will make the application process extremely clear and smooth. From knowing the best MCAT resources to use and how to prepare a personal statement, to understanding the type of environment one learns best in, Caryn will craft an individualized plan tailored to one’s aspirations. I cannot recommend Caryn enough - she will meet you at any point in the application process and ensure you are maximizing your potential. I am now a first-year medical student at my dream medical school in Chicago, and I owe it to Caryn.

I can confidently say that Caryn is the reason that I got into medical school. Caryn was an incredible resource for everything during the medical school process. I was able to go to her with anything from questions about deadlines to how to write my personal statement and how to ace my interviews. She went above and beyond to learn everything about my application and experiences to best help me describe them in my application, creating the most competitive application I could have submitted. Caryn helped me immensely when it came to determining how to write my personal statement and secondary applications. Caryn and her team also gave me instrumental advice to ace all of the different types of interviews and allowed me to complete plenty of practice with them beforehand. I attribute my acceptance to Caryn and her team. As good of an advisor as she is, she is a better person. She is so kind, always willing to chat and learn more about you as a person, and always goes above and beyond for you. She was always so excited to hear about how the process was going and any updates I had. She genuinely cared a lot about getting me accepted. I am so thankful to have worked with Caryn because without her I wouldn't be able to realize my dream of being a doctor!
