"WCS goes a long way in bridging the gap between those who have the financial backing to create a better application and those that do not. It essentially levels the playing field in terms of the priority given to better-organised applications. With thousands of applicants, such an advantage is necessary to gain admission."

"As a first generation college student, I had a difficult time navigating the medical school application process. While my pre-health office offered some general guidance, the best advice I received was from Haziq Siddiqi. With his experience applying for different fellowships and awards, he helped me craft various essays, in my primaries and secondaries, that highlighted the best part of my application. In addition, he coached me before I began my interviewing season. His encouraging words gave me the confidence I needed to go into the interview. I highly recommend his services to anyone who seeks acceptance into medical school."

"When I had my first interview, I was very nervous and didn't expect how to prepare. Melaku spent one hour going through different interview styles and mimicking the medical school interview scenarios to get the best feel possible. In addition, Melaku was super helpful with editing some of my secondary essays. I distinctly remember once when he mock interviewed me for a school and I had a very similar experience and content at my actual interview. I highly encourage others to use Melaku as a resource because his insight into the medical school admission is second nature."

"Erik is without a doubt the man to go to for anything medical school related! From the beginning, he has always kept me organized and guided me on how to complete each step of the process. From advice on MCAT preparation to brainstorming ideas and approaches for my personal statement, Erik's insight and knowledge on the entire process has been a huge help. I cannot imagine having to go through this process again without such support."
"Haziq knows how to ask the right questions. Because of his perception and insight, he can help you understand yourself and illustrate that understanding in your application and interview process. He has a range of experiences that will help him personalize your experience, so he will know where you are coming from and how to shape your application. Subtle skill like his is invaluable."
