  7. Allyson was very professional and provided the opportunity for self-evaluation following each question. She provided appropriate feedback, which was relevant to the school I was applying to.

  8. Allyson was a fantastic MMI coach. She was beyond professional, and was really able to help me target the areas I felt needed the most improvement. However, even outside of those areas, she provided insightful, thoughtful comments that I feel took my answers to the next level. Even though I was not applying to NOSM, she was knowledgeable about what topics would be important to know for the school I was interviewing for, which I appreciated. Allyson also helped me to establish a method of structuring my answers, but also went over more “superficial” aspects including introducing myself, eye contact, and speech patterns (such as saying “umm”). I felt very comfortable and confident going into my interview, and I attribute this completely to the help I received from Allyson. Honestly, I cannot recommend Allyson enough!

  9. I am so glad I booked coaching sessions with Allyson to prep for my MMI. She really helped me polish my answers and gain confidence going into my interviews. She was always prepared, willing to answer any questions I had, and just generally easy to talk to. I would recommend Allyson to anyone looking to get honest and constructive feedback on their MMI performance. Thanks so much for all of your help Allyson!

  10. Allyson was great! She is very professional and gives fantastic feedback. She was also very accommodating as she was able to put aside 2 hours so that my friend, who also has an interview at NOSM, and I could both practice MMI questions together. We will definitely be booking more sessions before the interview. Thank you again so much Allyson!

  14. Allyson is awesome! She used the time we had together to give constructive feedback on mock MMI answers to help my friend and I formulate strong answers by making them relevant, personable, and concise. I would absolutely recommend her. Thanks for your help, Allyson!

  15. Allyson’s goal right from the very start is to get you to start doing stations with her ASAP so that you can get as much practice & feedback on the MMI as you possibly can. Her stations are unique— she creates them herself and barely uses common ones that you can find on the internet. Her feedback is always constructive and encouraging —you will feel motivated & great after doing stations with her rather than feeling down. She 100% deserves a 5 star review.

  17. Allyson was the very first person I practiced with last year. She was helped me build my confidence and use my personal experiences to my advantage. Her sessions were well organized and I felt at ease. I was accepted to McGill this year and she certainly contributed to my success! I highly recommend her to anyone!
