Meet the Founder
Adam Lowrance, PhD
My expertise is built on more than a decade of college admissions experience. I hold both a masters and PhD in education leadership. I wrote my dissertation on the Disadvantaged Status question in the AMCAS primary application. You can find a link to my dissertation here.
I have personally reviewed and evaluated more than 15,000 medical school applications. In addition to helping students become competitive applicants, I continue help medical schools with admissions research and applicant selection.
I live with my wife, Dyane, and our dog, Frankie.
Dyane is a doctor of podiatric medicine and director of clinical affairs for the American Podiatric Medical Association.
Frankie helps me answer email and likes to join in on meetings with clients.
Whether I have the opportunity to work with you, or simply provide you information here on the website, I wish you the best in all of your pursuits.

A Message for Parents/Guardians
involvement is encouraged
Your decision to work with me indicates that you are already involved in your student’s development. I want you to remain involved.
I encourage parents/guardians and other trusted members of a student’s support network to join in on meetings (phone calls, video conferencing, in-person, even emails).
The path to medical school is arduous and with many distractions.
Joining in on the process will help ensure your student has the best possible support.
