The transition from high school to college can be both an exciting and scary experience for parents and their children. Students have to adjust to being on their own in a new, competitive environment, and many parents end up feeling helpless as they are so far away and unfamiliar with the new educational system.

We equip high school students with the right tools to prepare them for college. We also help college students succeed through academic planning and strategic advice. We provide the expertise so that your child can excel in college and achieve their dreams of one day becoming a physician.

What Our Clients are Saying

    "The team at premed counseling did an excellent job reviewing my personal statement. They challenged me to really think outside of the box. I was impressed with their patience and timeliness and I would highly recommend them."

  • John K., 4th Year College Student
  • "Rohit really helped me understand the medical school admissions process in general. I am a parent of a college freshman and being from another country I am unfamiliar with the undergraduate and medical education systems in this country. After our counseling sessions I feel that I can guide my child in the whole process."

  • Jitender S., Parent
  • "Before starting my freshman year at UCSD my parents purchased the academic plan which gave me a general framework for what courses to take, when to take the MCAT, and when to apply to medical school. It was really helpful in terms of finding some direction in a large college campus."

  • Neil P., 2nd Year College Student
  • "I was really nervous when I got my first interview for med school. Rohit practiced mock interviews with me on Skype and helped me refine my answers and mannerisms. Looking back I don't think I could have been as successful without him and I definitely recommend his services!"

  • Tara B., 1st Year Medical Student
  • "As all pre-med students know, getting into medical school is not an easy task. There are several things to keep track of, and it can be a very daunting process. Rohit has been through it all, and really gave me an inside view of what it takes. He had answers to my most detailed questions-- ranging from what Caribbean schools are legitimate, to what type of volunteer and research experience medical schools are truly interested in. He gave me insightful tips about how to get recommendation letters, plan my course load and MCAT, and what medical schools want to see me doing during my year off. He illustrated a clear picture of what can make or break an application. Rohit is patient, easy to talk to, and has no qualms about sharing his own experiences. He is a great resource for any pre med student."

  • Megan S., 3rd Year College Student
  • "When I was looking for a premed counselor I was looking for someone who would help me throughout college. I initially purchased the academic plan package and that has served as a very helpful road map for college coursework and extracurricular activities. In addition to the academic plan I have regular counseling sessions with Rohit for guidance about what courses to take and how to improve my study skills for specific classes. If you are looking for counseling services with someone that you can continue working with through your college education, I think you should choose Rohit and the Premed Counseling team because they really care to help!"
