“Over the past year, I have worked with Dr. Emil Chuck, who advised and helped me throughout the medical school application process.

Dr. Chuck always addressed every concern I had very granularly and partnered with me to devise a strategy for approaching each potential misstep in my application. We would then follow up a few weeks later, discuss the outcomes of said events, and strategize to help continue the momentum – ultimately making my application the best version it could be. 

I was accepted to two medical schools. All of this would not have been possible without the advising services offered by Dr. Chuck.”
