My name is Mike Frazier. I'm a graduate of UCLA and
medical school admissions committee member.
Why I Built this Site
I remember what it was like to be a premed
student. All you think about is how to get into medical school! That
92 on the test that gets you the A- instead of the A drives you
crazy, thinking that it might make the difference in getting
admitted or not. You are super busy with activities, community
service, shadowing, etc. I was always looking for advice during this
time and welcomed any that I could get. I built this site to try to
answer the questions that I had when I was applying to medical
school. I want you to learn from my experiences and get accepted,
just like I did. Or do it even better!
Aside from being a premed and medical student myself,
the most important experience I had to help you get into medical
school is my time on the UCLA admissions
committee. Here I saw first hand exactly
what it takes to get into medical school. I've turned what I learned
from these experiences into my
eBook 10 Steps to Accepted. I've priced it at
$14.99 to make it affordable on any budget.
Now that I'm through medical school (and managed to
land my top choice residency!), the site is also built to help
medical students succeed in medical school, and I've put an ebook together about that called Succeeding in Medical School- How to Land Your Top Choice Residency which you'll get free if you purchase 10 Steps or you can purchase ithere.
Hopefully you find the information that you are
looking for on this site. There are other sites with good
information as well, but be careful who you listen to when
it comes to advice on medical school admissions. The only
people who really know what it takes are people who have
been on an admissions committee. If you find others with
that experience as well, you can trust that they know what they're
talking about. If they haven't had that experience, they're
really just guessing.
I've also joined up with the MedSchoolCoach team to help provide you with top-of-the-line admissions consulting. All of us on the team have experience on admissions committees, which is what you need so you get the best advice possible. I work particularly with personal statements, AMCAS applications and general advising. I have experience with Texas and California schools, as well as experience with disadvantaged applicants. You can request my services specifically when you sign up for services with MedSchoolCoach. I'd love to work with you to help you get into your top choice medical school!
Remember, 60% of applicants do not get accepted to any medical school! Money spend on advising is money well spent. Just reapplying will probably cost you more than paying for advising to do it right the first time! Let us help you at MedSchoolCoach.
Anyway, a little more about me. After changing my mind throughout medical school, I
finally decided on psychiatry. I came in thinking I'd go into
psychiatry and eventually came back to it after my rotation at UCLA.
I love the field and am excited to practice in it!
I feel like in this field you really get to treat the
whole person. You take into account their social issues, financial
issues, health issues, everything. And if you can help people
overcome mental illness, you have given them their life back. They
can accomplish goals that they could not have accomplished
I graduated from Brigham Young University with a
Neuroscience major and a Business minor. A business minor is
something I suggest for all premed students, by the way!
Whether you are interested in running your own practice or
if you just want to know how to invest your money wisely (once you
get a salary!), business education will be useful to you for the
rest of your life.
One big thing you learn from business is the
importance of passive income. Passive income is money that
comes in without you having to trade time for it. Being a doctor is
not passive income. You trade your time for money. You get paid well
for your time, but if you stop working your money stops coming
My goal is to have enough passive income to be
able to offer my psychiatric services for free one day. I
think a lot of us aspiring doctors would like the same thing.
We want to be
doctors because we care about people, not because we care about
the money. But, we need money to live. So, what's the
You can make a living building a website about
something you love! Medical School Insider is mine. I love
building pages for the site. It never feels like work to me. Why?
Because it's something that I'm passionate about.
This website is one of my streams of passive
income. My first stream, by the way :). I now also own a few other sites that I've built with BringTheFresh and I've used BringTheFresh methods with this site to help it increase in the rankings.
the site make money?
There are several different ways.
These include advertisements, affiliate links and product
sales. Advertising is an easy one to understand. Affiliate links are
links to products I think you readers will be interested in and that
I think are great products. If you go to the company's site and buy
the product, I get paid commission on that. There are also my direct
products, including my
eBook 10 Steps to Accepted.
I've also teamed up with MedSchoolCoach
to provide consulting services. There are lots of ways to make money
with a website!
Now, I'm not a computer guy at all. I didn't know the first thing
about building a website before I found SBI.
SBI stands for Site Build It! and helps you to turn any hobby,
passion or skill into a viable online
Almost any topic can make money
with a website.
As you're applying to medical school, you need to stand out.
A website is a great way to stand out on your
application. What are your hobbies? What are your
interests? What do you love? You're going to be asked this over and
over on the interview trail and in your secondary essays.
Have an answer and a website that makes money!
Mine is now providing me with enough passive income to cover many of my monthly expenses.
You need no programming skills or web design knowledge, no
business and no product to sell. Just bring your brain and
motivation. SBI has all the tools you need, and they take you by
the hand and teach you step by step how to use everything.
They help you find the perfect topic for your site, then teach
you how to build it, to get traffic to it, and how to make money
with it, no matter what it is about!
Have a look at the hundreds of successful SBI websites, built
by normal people like you and me. All these sites are in the top 1%
of the most successful sites on the web. Mine is currently
in the top 2% and still growing! You can see that
there are many topics that people have turned into profitable
websites with SBI.
Another great product I've used has been BringTheFresh. SBI is great if you want to create a big site with lots of pages like this. BringTheFresh is great if you want to build smaller sites that get ranked faster with less content. They even have people how have made up to $1 million dollars in a year with their methods! I'm just getting started with them, but using their methods has already boosted my rankings and traffic significantly.
Both of these products are great and either would be a great start to online marketing. You can check out Bring The Fresh here and have a money back guarantee, so if you don't like it, get your money back. Simple as that. It might not work for you, but you might end up making a ton of money with it! Since you're a premed student, you already have dedication, which is one of the main things it takes to be successful in online business.
You can check out SBI here also with a money back guarantee if you don't like it. So, either way, give them a shot. You have nothing to lose. Both programs are great for beginners, like I was just a couple of years back.
Best of luck and I'll see you soon as a fellow doctor! And check out these programs so you can potentially make enough money to pay for your medical school in all cash!
