APE Application HotSeat® is included for all Insider, Executive and Director students.  HotSeat® is designed to provide acuity into how your medical school application stacks up under an admissions committee’s scrutiny and allows your application to undergo the ultimate test prior to submission: an admissions style file review performed by a former voting member of the admissions committee for the program where acceptance is sought.

Applicants typically spend over 80 hours (4,800 minutes) completing their medical school application, scrutinizing every fact to ensure they aren’t missing any important details.  In doing so, they may become so fixated with their application in a manner that prevents them from recognizing how their application will be received under a more realistic, efficient review; in other words, they fail to see the forest from the trees.  Keep in mind that after you officially submit your application, an admissions committee member will realistically spend between 15-30 minutes reviewing your file in full before making a decision on your future.

With HotSeat®, after a complete application and all supporting documentation have been finalized (but not officially submitted),  your entire application will be sent over to a former admissions committee voting member for a one time review, adcom style.  You will receive a HotSeat® Score and extensive high-yield written feedback within 3 business days of submitting your application.  Included with every HotSeat® purchase is a money-back guarantee* and a 45 minute follow up session with an APE mentor to iron out any issues identified.

Only APE HotSeat® can provide you the benefit of a genuine admissions committee review from the same program in which you seek acceptance while allowing you the flexibility to adjust your application and maximize your chances of success.
