    Christine provided essential guidance during the nerve-wracking process of applying to the Canadian medical school system. I attribute getting in on my first try to a school of my choice in part to her professional input. I am so impressed that I will be using her services again when I apply for my specialty fellowship abroad. - Danielle H., Haematology Resident

    I decided to pursue medical school rather late, I was completing a masters degree at the time, and didn't know much about what was involved. Christine taught me about the application process and provided great advice about the types of things successful applicants do to stand out When it came time to apply, Christine helped me perfect my personal letters, fine tune my autobiographical sketch and even provided interview tips. I am very grateful to Christine for her help.
    - Graham S., General Surgery Resident
