My Bio


Western (Dent)

Hi! I’m Tanya.

I’m in the Dentistry program at Western.

Since I immigrated with my bachelor’s dental degree from India, I have spent three whole years navigating the complicated medical and dental admissions process in Canada. There are not only all the courses to complete in preparation for exams, but I also found myself juggling exams, work as a dental assistant and interview preparation with very limited time. I know firsthand that communicating well in a work environment doesn’t always translate into interviewing well for college admissions.

I wasn’t a straight-A student, and to be honest, I initially thought I had an unimpressive résumé. However, I learned how to build my application to better highlight my strengths – and even include those strengths I had considered unimportant.  I was accepted at universities like Western, Manitoba and waitlisted at McGill.

The guidance from MedCoach truly helped me in the process. If I had to do it over again, I’d rely more on their coaches instead of trying to gather all that information from scratch. The admission process ended up taking a lot of time and effort.  As a way to give back to the community, I have been doing freelance coaching with friends and people in my network to help them reach their admission goals. From my own experience, I know that if you have reached this far, you already possess the strengths you need to take you further. I would identify them with you and work towards building on them to give you the confidence and knowledge to face any interview.

Tanya is an amazing coach, she is structured and patient. She is willing to go the extra mile with students even if that means staying on a couple minutes after your hour session. She provides great feedback, you can tell she really did her research on preparing questions and structures them accordingly. She is always prepared during the lesson and open to tailor lessons that best suit you. She is a very nice and approachable, would highly recommend scheduling a lesson with Tanya!

She tailored the practice session to what I requested and even did a pre meeting survey to help further tailor the practice session. Gave great feedback which I will use for future MMI sessions and for the real MMI.
