Admissions

I was driving and thinking about who else I need to thank for their help. I thought of you and said to myself I need to text or email Vijay tonight. So sorry I didn’t get to you earlier, but the answer is YES! And I have to admit that I give you HUGE credit for my acceptance. You helped me so much with the whole process and I am so incredibly thankful for all of your help. I’ll be starting this coming fall as a medical student at Indiana University School of Medicine!!!

I was just interviewed by LMU and 99% of what he coached me on showed up! Even with random questions they asked, I was confident & prepared enough to answered them. Recommending my friends for their graduate endeavors. Thanks
Christian (Doctor of Physical Therapy) – Los Angeles, CA

 

I just wanted to update you and let you know that I got accepted to Touro Med!! Thank you so much for all of your help with the interview prep. It definitely made me more confident and I was really able to convey why I believe I would make a great physician in the future based on my accomplishments. This interview in particular was group format so there were five candidates and three interviewers, which was nerve wracking at first. But I became comfortable very quickly and was able to shine with confidence and answer each question concisely. Thank you again so much and I wish you a very happy holiday season!
Best,
Alya (Medical School) – Los Angeles, CA

 

I was intimidated by the MBA application process but Joe at SOS made it so much more manageable. He assisted me find clarity in the essays, came up with a sound strategic approach to improve my GMAT scores, and the interview instruction he provided me with…he literally knew exactly what they were going to ask! Thanks
Jennifer (Masters of Business Administration) – Los Angeles, CA

SOS did an excellent job in preparing me for my medical school interview. I highly recommend them.
Lisa (Medical School) – Los Angeles, CA

 

I’m a 2nd year graduate student at UCLA who just finished applying to multiple study abroad fellowships such as the Marshall and Rhodes Scholarship. Knowing the interview would be the most important part of the application, I came to Vijay for coaching. And I’m so glad I did!
Vijay not only assisted me formulate strong answers to questions that I could expect, but also prepped me to answer curveball questions using general responses that could be widely applicable. But most importantly, he showed me interviewing methods that would help me convey passion and would leave a lasting impression on the interviewers. Thanks to time preparing with Vijay, I had an exceptional interview experiences, and the skills I learned with Vijay will continue to be invaluable in my future career as I continue on to job and academic interviews.
Highly recommended to all individuals applying to jobs, medical school, or any other position that requires interviews. Vijay is really great at what he does.
Alex (Marshall Scholarship and Rhodes Scholarship Programs) – Los Angeles, CA

 

I HIGHLY recommend Interview SOS to prep for med school interviews.
I met with Vijay back in Sept 2014 to prepare for some upcoming med school interviews. I had no prior experience interviewing and thought hiring a coach would maximize my chances of getting in. Vijay thoroughly prepared me on how to talk about myself, my resume, answer common questions, handle difficult & uncomfortable questions, and present myself as best as possible.
Of the seven interviews I attended, I was accepted at four schools, wait listed at two schools, and rejected from one. In addition, I received scholarship offers at 3 schools. I believe that my work with Vijay was imperative to my success this application cycle. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, patient, and is able to really tailor each answer to the candidate and school. This specialized attention built my confidence and molded me into the “perfect fit” for each school I applied to.
Thank you!
Anna (Medical School) – Beverly Hills, CA

 

Vijay is great! He really helps a lot! We went through common questions for interview and also discussed a lot about the possible questions focusing on my own experience. Vijay helped me with great answers as well as the tone when answering the questions. In addition, he make me realize of where to emphasis and how to deal with unexpected questions. He’s really professional at interview training and encourage me a lot. I feel more confident after this 2-hour session.
Update: The actual interview went very well. I have got the offer from my dream graduate program. Thank you, Vijay.
Jill (Graduate School) – Los Angeles, CA

 

If you are applying to med school, Vijay will really help you out. He will prepare you for the exact questionsthey will ask, and he will offer great recommendations on how to sell yourself as a viable candidate. Even if the questions in your actual interview aren’t presented in a straightforward way, you will be ready to answer them because Vijay’s method of prep involves forming a cohesive vision of who you are and your aspirations and career goals rather than just memorizing answers to common questions. Difficult questions become much easier to answer when you have a more clear idea of your own goals and skill-set. I definitely thought it was worth the money and would recommend Vijay’s services to anyone applying to med school in a heartbeat.
Update: I was accepted to the medical school of my dreams; and I could not have done it without Vijay. I strongly recommend his services.
Charles (Medical School) – New York, NY

 

SOS is great!!!! I went in about a month ago for interview prep for several of psychology doctorate graduate programs. We worked on great answers for many common questions. Also, Vijay gave great advice about how to display excitement and passion during my interviews. As someone who had never interviewed before, I was very nervous for them, I definitely recommend this services. I got into all of the programs that I interviewed for.
Isabel (Doctoral Programs in Psychology) – Riverside, CA

 

I thought I had no chance of getting into med school. After working with Vijay however, everything changed. He helped me tremendously with my application & interview skills and I have recently been accepted into med school! I am grateful to have worked with him.

Vijay was a awesome mentor to me when it came to assisting me write my college application essays. He patiently listened to my ideas and assisted me implement them in a professional manner. Thanks to his support I was able to get into the schools I wanted. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is going through the same college application process as me.
Radha (College) – Naperville, IL

 

I strongly recommend Interview SOS. I was desperate for a college coach because my twins have not started their college appsn and November is around the corner. I went to Angies list and saw and called this company. The same day Vijay called me and I told him about our problem. He gave us HOPE. He set up the appointment right away for my twins and went to our house, instead of us going to his office. He gave us a very reasonable rate that we could afford. For two weeks, he worked with my twins patiently; checking everything in details, until they finished the application and he made certain that it was all submitted before we went on our vacation, which we all deserve. He also made follow up calls to us, to make sure that all the documents are submitted like teachers recommendations, sat/act scores, and transcripts.

Vijay treated my twins like family and not just clients. He is very professional and he’ll tell you on what he can do, to the best of his ability for your child to be accepted in a great college or university. In my twin’s case, Stanford and UCLA are what we are all aiming for them. I think because of what SOS produced in the application, that I am confident the they’ll be accepted. I could not have done it without them because I did not go to college here.

So in behalf of my twins and I, we desire to thank you very much for all your help and we really appreciate it. We wish you and your staff a Happy Thanksgiving. May the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ bless all of you!
