    Tips to Answer EVMS Secondaries

     
    EVMS Secondary Application Tip #1: We often get asked, “How do you answer the question ‘Briefly describe your exposure to medicine?'” Many EVMS applicants will write a bullet point list about all their clinical experiences, including all their shadowing opportunities. Dr. Rizal’s and Dr. Mediratta’s goals are to make you stand out from the rest of the applicants. So, we suggest the following:

    1. An overall narrative arc about your journey and lessons learned through your clinical experiences
    2. A list of your clinical experiences, but write 2-3 sentences per clinical experience. Focus on what you learned and your reflections on how that clinical experience will make you be a better physician.

    Contact us if you have questions about how to answer this EVMS secondary essay.

    EVMS Secondary Application Tip #2: The questions “What do you think you will like best about being a physician?” and “What do you think you will like least about being a physician?” don’t contain any tricks or special meaning. Don’t try to write the “right answer” on your EVMS secondaries. Instead, follow your heart and gut about what excites you most and what scares you most about medicine. 

    EVMS Secondary Application Tip #3: EVMS is a community-oriented school and they want to recruit medical school students who are interested in serving the Virginia community in the future. It is important to note this in your EVMS secondaries. Additionally, make sure to read our blog post about How to Answer “Why This Medical School?” for tips on how to answer “Why EVMS?” 

    EVMS Secondary Application Tip #4: Eastern Virginia Medical School favors students who have lived or had experiences in the state of Virginia. Write about your affiliations with Virginia, including growing up in Virginia or currently living in Virginia or Washington D.C.! Additionally, give specific ways you want to be involved with the local Virginia community in your EVMS secondaries.
