After receiving an acceptance:

“I wanted to tell you that I have officially been accepted to (medical school)!!
I am so happy that all of the hard work and long hours I’ve put in over the years have finally paid off!
I would’ve liked to send you a thank you card but I know you’re away from your office for a while, so here it is: I cannot even figure out where to begin with how to thank you for all of the immense support you and your office has given me over the years. You have given me such great direction and reassurance that I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for your guidance through this extremely tedious and meticulous process. I owe a huge part of my success to you and once again, thank you for being my advisor. I’m going to be a doctor, thanks to you.” – A.T., Pre-Med

“I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for you. You were always there for me cheering me on! For multiple years! You comforted me in one of my darkest moments in life when I didn’t do as well as I hoped on the MCAT the first time I took it. You told me the facts. You told me what I needed to do. Throughout the years, you always told me what was necessary for me to get into medical school (obviously because that’s your job lol). And thank God, I actually and finally did it.
I consider you to have been in my inner circle of the few genuine people who were in my cheering section and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I will continually try to find ways to make it up to you whether you want me to or not! And hopefully I will swing by Orlando again to thank you in person.” – J.B., Pre-Med

“I have some wonderful news to share with you.  I have been accepted into (medical school)’s class of 2021!!!  It has been the longest journey and you have been a witness to it.  Every time I was discouraged, I met with you and I would always leave your office feeling refueled and determined. Thank you for guiding me and supporting me along the way.  I couldn’t have done this without you! ?” – S.N., Pre-Med

“I am very happy to say that I have recently been accepted to (medical school)!!!
Thank you for all of the help and guidance you have provided me over the years. If it wasn’t for you, there is a fair chance that I wouldn’t have moved for my current graduate program at (school). I am very thankful for all of the opportunities you have given me, from the MCAT Task Force, to the D.O. symposium board, to the interview for the surgical conference. This is without even mentioning the last minute mock interview and the opportunities you have provided AMSA throughout the years.
You have made a major impact in my journey to become a physician. I hope that you and your office continues to facilitate matriculation for pre-health and pre-law students as much as you have helped me.” – M.H., Pre-Med

“Well, good news! I had my interview with (pharmacy school) early in January and recently found out I was accepted into their School of Pharmacy for the Fall of 2016. I am overwhelmed with excitement for this opportunity, and wanted to take the time to thank you both again for the constructive criticism I received from the mock-interview. It was very beneficial, and I had time to improve my interviewing skills before the official interview.
Thank you again for all your hard work. At a school of this size, I can not tell you how much I appreciated the personal attention I received from you and the other advisors at this office. I had met once with (PHPL advisor) as well and she was extremely knowledgeable and kind. I can not say enough about this office, so THANK YOU.” – K.S., Pre-Pharmacy
