- Parents' Corner
||Over the past decade as a medical admissions advisor and consultant, I have witnessed how being the parent of an applicant can be just as stressful as being the actual applicant. Parents of applicants often struggle with supporting their child during the complex admissions process without being overbearing. You may feel overwhelmed by the numerous steps and extensive essay writing required for medical school admissions.
Perhaps you are frustrated by the lack of personalized advising at your child’s undergraduate institution where advisors often serve hundreds of applicants. MDadmit is dedicated to providing the personalized strategic advice, application and essay editing, and mock interviews to help your daughter or son through the often-daunting admissions process.
Many of my MDadmit clients come through parents who learn of MDadmit through friends, colleagues, or the Internet. I am more than happy to speak with you about our services and how we can work together to help your daughter or son gain acceptance to medical school, post-baccalaureate programs, or residency. When you call the MDadmit office at 415.939.5251, you will be connected directly to me. If you obtain voicemail, please leave a message and I will return your call within 24 business hours. You can also send an e-mail to
which I will answer personally.
If you are the parent of a medical school applicant looking for detailed, step-by-step admissions advice, I suggest reading my latest book – The Medical School Admissions Guide: A Harvard MD’s Week-by-Week Admissions Handbook. After one read of this admissions guide, you will know more about medical school admissions than any parent on the block! To purchase Dr. Miller’s book, please click here.
I look forward to connecting with you and helping your child achieve her or his dreams!
Dr. Suzanne M. Miller
Q: How can I be sure this is not an Internet scam?
A: I doubt most Internet scams allow you to speak directly with the CEO of the company when you call. I have provided you with my resume highlights on the Who We Are page. Feel free to call any of the institutions listed to verify the information.
Q: How do I pay?
A: All services are paid for in advance via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to pay via credit card. Please see the Solutions page for more information.
Q: Do you do all the advising and mock interviews?
Q: May I pay for the services from my account for my child?
Q: How do you have time to be a practicing emergency physician, faculty member at two universities, and professional writer?
A:One of the many beauties of emergency medicine is that full time is defined as three days per week. I have plenty of time to run MDadmit and give your child the full attention she or he deserves.
Q: Do you edit every MDadmit essay?
A: Yes. A team of professional editors performs the first edit, and then I perform the final edit of every essay.
Q: Do you have professional writing experience?
A: Yes. I recently published The Medical School Admissions Guide: A Harvard MD’s Week-by-Week Admissions Handbook. In addition, I have been published in peer-reviewed journals, the popular press, and online. For more information on Dr. Miller’s experience, please click here.
Q: Have you served as a faculty member at a major medical school?
A: Yes. I am a clinical instructor at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and an Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. For more information on Dr. Miller’s experience, please click here.

A: Yes. I am a practicing, board-certified emergency physician at INOVA Fairfax Hospital, a Level I trauma center in Falls Church, VA.

Q: Have you worked on an admissions committee?
A: Yes. My admissions experience started as a Harvard Pre-Med Tutor and then Co-Chair of the Eliot House Pre-Medical Committee. I currently serve on the GW emergency medicine admissions committee as an interviewer. Due to conflict of interest because of MDadmit, I am currently unable to serve on GW or VCU medical school admissions committees. For more information on Dr. Miller’s experience, please click here.
Q: How many years of experience do you have in admissions advising?
Q: Can in-person advising and mock interview sessions be arranged?
A: In-person advising and mock interview sessions take place in Washington, DC. All other advising occurs via phone, Skype, and e-mail. The vast majority of MDadmit clients do not live in the Washington, DC area and have a very positive experience utilizing the latest technology to take advantage of MDadmit services.
