    keep options open

    Advertisements



    Hey fellow AUC'ers,

    its interesting the paths that we take and what opens up in each direction. As i always advice everyone to keep their options open this last year has been insane. so going through residency i am taking some time for a research year. i am working on two projects that will hopefully lead to publication, and along with a group of fellow docs we are starting something that i have been talking about on here for probably the last two years.

    a service to help put together a personal statement and eras applications for grads looking to get into residency in the states. i think its helpful for most gards to do this and specially for foreign grads and people who are not from the US.. i can't tell you how many applications we threw out simply because of horrid personal statements and an erratic ERAS application..most had decent usmle scores.

    anyway any of you check out the site that went live today and give me feedback before we throw down advertiosing money. its a simple site straight to the point www.getaresidency.com

    peace

    so always keep an eye out for opportunity you never know where your degrees will take you

    from an aesthetic point of view, i dont think the site looks very professional..i think you should hire someone to spruce it up..the top picture is too big and takes up too much of the screen..its a bit distracting..i think it should be a smaller banner that spans across the entire website (left to right) instead of just half the page

    hope this helps, best of luck!

    agree with the above poster....you also have numerous grammatical and spelling mistakes on your "testimonial" page....either put [sic] in for quoting the poorly chosen words of the med students or fix it up a bit. Doesn't reflect well on the group's ability to edit your applications....in fact, it kind of puts up a red flag to me

    thanks this is what i need the page up right now is a test page. budget dictates the page so until this gets going we can only do so much for a start up. we are working on testing out the functions and make sure all buttons work before going after asthetics..

    as for pricing we looked at other sites offering similar services and tried to price lower however we are working physicians and its got to be worth my time

    i agree with k-girl...expensive. I used a site for my statement, and they did a great job, much cheaper than the prices you put up.

    cool, thanks all. the sites we looked at were charging more. what we talked about was cutting everything in half for this cycle and see where it goes..are those prices more in line? i don't think we can go lower because then its not worth the time. tomorrow i willo have the prices set at .01 to test paypal.

    hopefully by next week everything will be set and the site will be running.

    thanks for all the feedback

    Hope it works out for you, but I think you're going to have some difficulty with the currently available competition. Essay Edge does an absolutely excellent job, they have a professional website, a long successful track record, and they offer more than your essay services, for less money.

    Honestly, if you were a 3rd year student considering either your service or theirs, who do you think you'd go with.

    the people at essay edge evaluate eras applications and are on residency selection committees?
