Welcome to Study Bypass
Lets just be honest, medical education in this country is tough. Thousands of student every year are asking, "How do I get into medical school?"
Undergrad, as a pre-med, is stressful and breeds a competitive atmosphere. There are hundreds of hoops to jump through, and in the end your 4 years of work are watered down to a few page application and a MCAT score. Subtle errors can sometimes make the difference between getting accepted and spending another year repeating the process. Every application cycle, hundreds of our nations best future doctors are outright rejected. The current system is broken and some of the most excellent, creative, responsible students are left asking "why?" Given the system is unlikely to change, we must adapt. I hope this website will be useful to all pre-meds, from those still in high-school to those planning their 2nd round of applications. Let us help you get into medical school
For those currently applying, I will offer a free basic personal statement review, a more detailed editing options, and practice Skype interviews
For those currently applying, I am happy to review your current platform, identify weaknesses, suggest strengths, and set your application up for maximum success. It's never too early to start preparing once you have made this decision
Through my experiences with higher education I have honed my study and test taking skills to a fine point. Armed with knowledge of efficient study techniques, and my high yield test taking strategy, virtually any test can be concord. I hope this collection of tips and tricks will be helpful for both pre-med students, as well as students of other disciplines. My test taking strategy, though perfected using the MCAT and medical licensing exams, are relevant for any test from the SAT's to your next physical chemistry midterm.
Test Taking and Study Strategy
Med school only gets a little bit better. At least you have some sort of "job security," as it is very difficult to get thrown out. Your stress changes from worrying about "getting in" to trying to digest large amounts of information, which may or may not be relevant to your future specialty. During your clinical years you start to have a little fun, but you also learn what its like to work a 28 hour shift.
Residency gets a lot better. You have a job and start making almost as much money as your friend who works at discount tire. With current duty hour protections you work a lot, but most programs are not abusive. Some are. At this point the end is near, which creates a new sort of terror. Thoughts such as, "am I really ready to go practice on my own?" and, "I really hope I don't kill someone," begin to surface.
My overall goal for this website is to make navigating the US medical education system easier for current pre-meds, med students, and residents.
