Default Re: Cost

Hi Coronary,

The cost varies depending on the nature of the applicant's situation. Some applicants have pre-written personal statements that need improving, others ask us to write a brand new personal statement.

IMG Angel's process works as follows: We typically begin with a 10-15 minute phone or Skype call in which we discuss a number of factors including your desired specialty, CV, background, and motivations for pursuing medicine. We then follow-up with a draft introductory paragraph that you may use free of charge. We provide this in order to give you a sense of our creative writing style and approach. At this point you can then decide whether you wish to work with us. We are still waiting to hear from a number of our clients about the most recent match, but from the responses received thus far we are on track for another incredible match rate (>85%).

Feel free to reach out to us directly via email at info@imgangel.com. Best of luck in your journey.

Thanks,

Ben

I used "Training 4 Residency" and it was terrible!
Important caveat: One user here recommended this awful company to me here in this forum and I found out later that it wasn't a real user, but a company person. Do a thorough search on your choice and what service you want to use!

I used futuremdresidents.com and they did a great and professional job. I have been recommending them to my friends because they offer some discount when they mention my name.

Default Excellent proofreading service and affordable!

Hey,

So I heard about this doctor who proofread personal statements. Basically I emailed her and she proofread a few lines for free so I could get an idea of how she worked. I was satisfied and so I paid her to do my full personal statement.
She worked fast, and was excellent! She not only proofread my personal statement for grammatical errors but also gave me examples on how to make the content better and more engaging. I was very satisfied with her help.

She is currently an internal medicine resident.

For anyone interested you can email her at: brookdaniels599@gmail.com
