Who to Contact
- Mr. Thomas Coyne
- Pre-Health Advisor
"As a pre-health student it seemed as though there were a myriad number of mazes and hoops one had to jump through in order to just get to the point to apply. Mr. Coyne was of great assistance helping me to plan my pre-med years and prioritize, while also being a receptive ear for doubts or concerns."
—Spencer Lieberman, University of Virginia School of Medicine
"The application process for medical school was daunting and having an advisor who could effortlessly guide me through each step was invaluable. This is not only known within the SCDC- I had a member of an interview committee mention that Tom is a great advisor for pre-med students when we discussed my Drexel background."
—Danielle LaSalle, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
The process of applying to medical school is a daunting task. Mr. Coyne worked with me over several years to develop a competitive application portfolio. This process included making a plan of study, preparing for the MCAT, choosing medical schools to apply to, and developing interviewing skills. Without Mr. Coyne’s assistance, I would not have known of the school I ultimately matriculated to, The Commonwealth Medical College.
—C.Corbin Drescher, The Commonwealth Medical College (PA)
As a now first year medical student, I am astounded at the level of knowledge and wisdom about the med school application process that I was afforded with compared to my peers. This would not have been possible without the assistance of Mr. Thomas Coyne. I received outstanding, detailed guidance every step of the way and I feel this allowed me to be successful. Mr. Coyne took the extra time to review my personal statement, AMCAS/AACOMAS applications, and on top of it he made himself readily available any time questions came up. Frankly, getting into medical school would have been even more difficult otherwise.
—James Mazzuchelli, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bradenton, FL
"Tom Coyne was incredibly helpful in guiding me on the path to medical school. From helping select which schools to apply to, providing assistance in forming my application, to offering practice interviews, all of the services were invaluable. Applying to medical school is not the simplest task; I am glad I was able to work with Tom throughout the process."
—Karl Reisig, State University of New York, Upstate Medical University College of Medicine
"As a freshman Economics major at Drexel, I was a little overwhelmed by the entire MCAT/Medical School application procedure. However, with Mr. Coyne's guidance, I was able to finish my undergraduate degree in three years, get multiple allopathic medical school interviews as well as get a scholarship for the school that I presently attend. Although there are many avenues of information, nobody was as valuable as Mr. Coyne, with his wealth of experience as well as tailored yet realistic advice. Thank you so very much for all your help!"
—Ajay Kohli, Drexel University College of Medicine
"The pre-health advising program is an exceptional tool for students looking to pursue advanced degrees in medicine and other health-related fields. As an undergraduate student seeking professional school, Mr. Coyne provided me realistic options and strategies to improve my profile. If you are goal-directed, Mr. Coyne will work relentlessly to help you reach your goal."
