Applying to medical school can be overwhelming and extremely competitive. We ease your stress by giving you three massive advantages over your fellow applicants:
YOUR GUIDE ON THE PATH TO MEDICAL SCHOOL
Your Own 1-on-1 Admissions Mentor
Our admissions mentors are among the most successful applicants nationwide—having received multiple acceptances at top schools. You’ll have a Guide By Your Side 24/7 who has successfully navigated the same path you are about to tread.
Guidance from Real Admissions Committee Members
Your application will be reviewed and edited by current and former members of Admissions Committees at U.S. or Canadian Medical Schools. You couldn’t have a bigger advantage: the same group of professionals who will ultimately decide your fate will also help prepare your application!
A Step-by-Step System: Proven, Simple, Easy to Follow
We make the complex, year-long process of applying to medical school approachable. We simplify the process into an easy, step-by-step system shown to DOUBLE acceptance rates across the board.
Altius Dramatically Increases Your Admissions Success Rate
According to the AAMC, only about 40% of applicants are accepted. It can be discouraging to realize that 6 out of 10 students don’t receive even one acceptance offer. Fortunately, your odds of success more than DOUBLE if you’re an Altius admissions client. Year after year, our clients enjoy a 90% acceptance rate.

PROBLEM: You Receive Inaccurate or Conflicting Advice
Free admissions advice is readily available…and notoriously inaccurate. Especially if your plan includes searching the internet or talking to friends, you’re likely to end up with conflicting messages. Your advisor says this, a popular website says that, and your cousin the doctor disagrees with both of them.
This issue is the #1 reason we determined that we would only retain admissions experts with true insider knowledge. Every member of our team is required to be either a highly-successful applicant and current MD student, or a current or former member of an actual Admissions Committee. These experts provide our clients with clear, authoritative, proven application advice.
PROBLEM: You’re Too Busy
Pre-med life has you balancing a heavy course load with MCAT preparation, extracurriculars, family, friends, work, research, volunteering, and more. You barely have time to eat, so where will you find the time to prepare a lengthy medical school application?
Let us help you. Working 1-on-1 with an experienced Admissions Mentor makes the entire process less time consuming and more efficient. Our step-by-step process also makes it easier to move quickly from one application benchmark to another.
PROBLEM: The Process is Too Complex
Extracurriculars, patient exposure, shadowing, GPA, BCPM, MCAT, AMCAS, TMDSAS, AACOMAS, personal essay, secondaries, interviews, waitlists…and the list goes on. Missteps and lost opportunities add up quickly when the process is lengthy and involves dozens of components.
Altius makes the entire process a simple, step-by-step process. While we can’t make the application process easy, our approach does make the process more efficient and manageable. Trust your 1-on-1 Admissions Mentor, follow our step-wise process, and you’ll soon be receiving those coveted acceptance letters.
PROBLEM: You Don’t Get In on Your First Attempt
It is increasingly common for students to receive zero acceptances on their first attempt. This makes you a re-applicant, a class of student ADCOMs hold to a much higher standard the following cycle. Not to mention, you’ve spent several thousand dollars and 1-2 years of your life, just to be back at square one.
As long as you come to us early, and follow our advice as to when to apply, or when NOT to apply, the risk of a failed application cycle is drastically reduced. Over 95% of clients who heed our advice gain admission on their first attempt—saving them and their families years of effort and tens of thousands of dollars in application expenses.
An Investment in Yourself that Pays You Back
With an AMCAS application fee, per school fees, secondary application fees, and interview travel, the application process can be prohibitively expensive. Adding professional admissions services may seem out of reach.
Fortunately, our admissions packages usually SAVE our clients money in the long run. We’ve also taken several steps to make admissions tuition more affordable.
Save On Application Fees
The typical student takes a “shotgun” approach by applying to dozens of schools and hoping for a little luck. Your 1-on-1 Admissions Mentor will help you target only the right schools that match your profile, saving you hundreds of dollars in both AMCAS and secondary fees.
Save On Travel Costs
With an expert admissions guide assisting you throughout the process, you will apply more efficiently, receive more acceptances, and spend less time traveling to interviews. Many of our clients will cancel late interviews because they already hold acceptance offers from better schools.
Save Time and Money By Getting It Right the First Time
Most students will miss at least one application cycle before they get their MCAT, AMCAS application, and all the other necessary items in order. Students may finally get things done, but not until late in the application year—which almost always leads to a failed cycle and the need to reapply. This mistake alone will eventually cost you one full year of a physician’s salary (50-100 times the cost of our admissions services). Our step-by-step process and 1-on-1 support mean no missed deadlines, wasted application cycles, or costly “re-applicant” problems.
Access Better Schools and Residency Programs
Our clients not only enjoy greater acceptance rates across the board, they are also accepted at much higher rates to the country’s most elite medical schools. Graduating from a top school opens doors for more competitive specialties and residency programs, which can spell hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars in additional income over the long term.
Access Valuable Scholarships
Because our clients submit significantly better applications, they are usually first in line for merit-based scholarships. Our clients regularly receive multiple scholarship offers, with several students each year receiving full-ride offers. Even if you only receive a small, partial scholarship, that alone will cover the cost you paid for Altius Admission support.
