Bio: 

            I am currently in my 2nd year of medicine at the University of Toronto. I have a strong passion for the neurosciences and have taken on an interest in surgery and thus hope to meld these interests towards a career in neurosurgery. I love to talk to peers and students about their work and social life and provide any help that they may ask for. This is why I want to be a coach because I find giving back and mentoring to students is very rewarding and a valuable experience that should be appreciated by the coaches.

Time management and balancing work/school/extracurricular life is one of my strengths and what I’m known for amongst my peers. In my spare time I love to watch TV, play video games and participate in badminton, biking, and basketball with friends. These extracurricular activities were the ones I maintained throughout medical school but when I was applying I also took interests in music by playing the saxophone and guitar; both of which I continue to this day time from time.

I am very excited to coach students to success and am looking forward to working with you!

 

Application Experience:

            I have experience applying to both Canadian and American medical schools. While being familiar with the application process for both systems I was also invited to complete interviews and received acceptances from schools in both countries. Within Canada specifically I applied to the: University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, McMaster University, Western University, Queen’s University, University of British Columbia, and Dalhousie University. I interviewed at University of Toronto and University of Ottawa.

Within American I have experience applying to 20 different schools across 8 states and specific interview experience (traditional and MMI) and acceptance for Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan and State University of New York. I applied to medical school twice before being accepted after completing my 4th year of undergraduate education where I received a Bachelors of Science.

  3. Dhruv was an exceptional coach! Despite being out of the country and having an extremely busy schedule, he made it a point to make time for an interview practice session with me. He worked with me to develop a structure for my responses and pointed out common pitfalls. He also shared his personal interview experiences and directed me to additional resources. His amiable, sincere personality combined with his beneficial insights make him an outstanding coach and one that I would highly recommend to all students amidst interview preparation.

  6. Dhruv has been great in helping me through the interview process. It is , without a doubt, stressful to navigate the admissions and interview cycle but Dhruv immediately put me at ease and helped me raise my confidence through his calm, supportive persona and advice. He was very well organised in preparing for the session, provided me with helpful tips and practised many mock interview questions followed by insightful feedback. He was also very approachable if I had any questions. Would definitely recommend him as a great coach!
