My Bio

Wondu

MedCoach

Hello there! My name is Wondu, and I’m a medical student at the University of Toronto. Prior to beginning medical school, I had completed my bachelor’s degree in the honours chemistry program at Carleton University in Ottawa.

During my degree, my research focused on using mass spectrometry in different analytical chemistry applications. I spent a summer operating a mass spectrometer in a supervised injection site to test drugs for content of toxic synthetic opioids like fentanyl and carfentanil. Aside from my studies, my personal activities mainly center around advocating for better accessibility to quality education for youth from disadvantaged and underrepresented communities.

During my medical school application experience I was fortunate enough to interview at, and gain offers from, several Ontario medical schools. I was able to perform well in my interviews by practicing extensively with others and accessing many different resources. I know first-hand just how stressful the medical school application and interview process can be, and I'm happy to use what I learned during my successful experience to help other future medical students!

Wondu gives really thorough feedback with respect to structure, content, and habits to break e.g., using certain filler words too much. He’s also very knowledgable about high-yield topics such as the opioid crisis and team management and gave me lots of nuanced facts I was able to bring up in my actual interviews. Last thing, Wondu lays out his sessions with back to back prompts first and then feedback at the end - this is really good for developing interview stamina and helped save time as well!

Wondu helped me with my vMI interview preparation and gave me great feedback and advice that helped me to improve my interview skills! I used a lot of the tips we discussed during my actual interview and was able to receive an admission offer this May!

I had multiple coaching sessions with Wondu for my UofT vMPI interview. He gave critical and helpful feedback which gave me confidence when answering prompts and definitely saw improvement in my performance as the sessions went by.

I bought the application review package and my U of T application was matched and reviewed by Wondu. Unfortunately, I found his comments to be too general. Additionally, there were only 1-2 comments per essay, even though it was my first rough draft, and I felt that I needed much more guidance, editing, and rephrasing than what I got back. Additionally, for my OMSAS ABS, I didn’t receive much guidance either- just one general comment for my entire sketch, which consisted of 32 entries. In the end, I changed a total of 2 sentences from my three essays that he suggested. Unfortunately, I ended up paying another application service; however, I found that was much more thorough and provided me with all the help that I needed.
