We’re excited to share InGenius Prep’s FREE webinar on “How to Succeed with Your Secondaries,” which will take place on July 23rd at 8:00 pm EST.
Secondaries are quickly rolling into inboxes and it’s important to submit them as early as possible to make a strong impression on med schools.
The webinar will be hosted by Chantal Lunderville, a Former Med School Application Reader & Interviewer from UCLA and an InGenius Prep counselor.
This webinar will be Q&A style! Students can submit any questions they have ahead of time to email@example.com, tweet @InGeniusPrep with the hashtag #secondariessuccess, or ask them live at the webinar.

CCI is offering a UNIQUE Winter Term 2020 opportunity for Super Senior Febs, Seniors, and Juniors.
The month long J-Term Middlebury Regional EMS EMT Internship is an opportunity typically reserved for First-Year and Sophomore students. For the past two years we selected two upper class students to participate in the internship as class captains. In addition to fulfilling all the course requirements, the captains served as a resource for the younger students and helped out the lead paramedic with blast emails, logistics, and even calling and then picking up a student who had overslept!!! A typical day begins around 7:30 AM with the captain scraping ice off of and warming up a college van, then driving students from ADK Circle to the station house. The day ends with a captain driving the students back to campus between 4:30-5:00 PM and returning the van. You must have a Middlebury College driver’s license or be willing to go through the Middlebury College Driver’s License Program this fall in order to be considered for this opportunity.
The cost of the EMT internship is to be determined; last year it was $650.00 and we anticipate that it will be close to this figure. Students who receive financial aid at Middlebury pay $100.00.
Interested students should email and attach a resume to Hannah Benz (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining why this opportunity is a good fit.
Applications are due to Hannah Benz (email@example.com) by 8/15/19. Late submissions will not be considered.
Questions? Please email Hannah Benz directly.
Some students elect to take a GRE subject test in preparation for graduate school. The paper based exam (available for Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Literature in English) is administered three times per academic year; in September, October, and April.
Middlebury College will be administering GRE subject tests in Twilight Hall on:
- Saturday, September 14, 2019
- Saturday, October 26, 2019
- Saturday, April 4, 2020
Seats are limited for the exam, so students are encouraged to register early through the ETS website.
Not all graduate programs require the subject test, and GREs come with an expiration date (typically 5 years), so consider meeting with a faculty or CCI advisor if you are considering taking a GRE subject test.
For additional information, please visit the GRE subject test section of the Educational Testing Service website.

Great news for DO applicants!
The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) has launched the Choose DO Explorer, the Association’s first online search tool created to help prospective medical students and prehealth advisors more readily find information about admission to osteopathic medical colleges.
The Explorer provides information on school locations, dual degree options, institutional campus settings, mean overall GPA and MCAT scores for enrolled students, and application deadlines, among other relevant college details.
With 25 percent of all U.S. medical students now attending a college of osteopathic medicine, the field has become one of the fastest growing health professions in the nation. As part of the Choose DO initiative, the Explorer reflects AACOM’s commitment to promoting osteopathic medical education as a preferred pathway for future physicians and looks to increase the number of qualified physicians available to meet U.S. health care needs.
If you are in the process of applying to medical school (or thinking of applying in the future,) we have created a Google map of where Midd grads have matriculated to medical school over the last five years. The map will help you see where alumni are located. Simply click on the map pin and it will tell you what school and how many alumni matriculated that year. Keep an eye on the map as we will be adding DO, dental and veterinary schools as well.
