ABOUT

     PTG Admissions is a medical school admissions advising service focused on providing quality and affordable assistance to pre-medical students applying to U.S. MD and DO programs. Our services include brainstorming and editing personal statements, primary applications, and supplemental essays. Past this, we assist students with application timeline accountability, the letters of recommendation process, and interview preparation. 
     The key to our model lies in employing successful, vetted applicants from recent application cycles; by doing so, we are able to offer extremely low rates compared to other advising companies without compromising quality. If anything, our advisors are able to offer the most cutting-edge, relevant advice in tackling the complex, ever-changing medical school application process. 

     PTG Admissions strives to make medical school and the application process accessible and affordable to all students, including low-income students, first generation applicants, re-applicants, nontraditional students, and everyday students. Our nonprofit’s underlying mission is to support students on their journey toward higher education, and we are proud to offer these services as a way to do so.
