Secondary applications, the supplemental applications you receive from medical schools after you submit your primary AMCAS, AACOMAS, TMDSAS, or PharmCAS application, can be daunting. Applicants often don't know what schools are looking for in secondary application essays and how it affects their candidacy.
Fortunately, Lean On advisors have successfully passed that process and are ready to provide you with their insight. Lean On gives you two systems to choose from when editing your secondary application:
The Holistic System
The Character System
Profesional schools are increasingly utilizing holistic review methodologies, in which an applicant's entire application is reviewed by the admissions officer, not just the primary or secondary application. Lean On's Holistic System mimics that process by reviewing your primary application, and then revising your entire secondary application to ensure you have addressed any shortcomings and are portrayed optimally.
If you choose the Holistic System, in addition to sending us your secondary application, email us your primary application and we'll take both into account when editing your secondary application. Every secondary application we edit counts as one edit. For example, if you purchase a 2 Edit Secondary Consult, you can have one secondary application edited twice or two different secondary applications edited once. Here's how the pricing breaks down:
- $69 - 2 Edit Secondary Consult
- $94 - 3 Edit Secondary Consult
- $119 - 4 Edit Secondary Consult
This system is for those applicants who want to focus on only their secondary application because they know their primary application is rock solid.
In the Character System, you choose which portions of secondary applications you need help with. While not as comprehensive as the Holistic System, the Character System gives you the ability to pick which secondary application essays to hone in on.
Unlike the Holistic System, when you use the Character System, Lean On advisors will only read and revise your secondary applications in isolation. Lean On editors will stop editing once they reach the character limit (including spaces) you purchased. Here's how the pricing breaks down:
- $49 - 10,600 characters edited
- $74 - 15,900 characters edited
- $99 - 21,200 characters edited
