BreakThru Mentoring matches pre-medical students with the people most likely to help them get into medical school – our BreakThru Medical Mentors.

"Where The Dreamers Meet the Doers"

Mentoring

"The biggest challenge facing pre-meds has nothing to do with grades, the MCAT, or clubs. It's ambiguity. Getting into medical school is straight forward, but a #premed simply doesn't have the #mentoring needed to avoid pitfalls along the way." #breakthru

Life as a Pre-Medical Student Isn't Easy.

The sacrifices, the anxiety, the late nights, the constant comparisons to others, the fear that comes with each exam, the, often literal, blood, sweat and tears you shed. It’s horrible and it’s all in pursuit of a singular dream – becoming a doctor. Everyone at BreakThru Mentoring has been there. We’ve suffered through those nights studying Organic Chemistry, planning for the MCAT, balancing of all of our extracurriculars, and wondering what we need to do next that will set us apart. We know exactly the challenges that you are working to overcome, we succeeded, and we can show you how too.

 

It's Not Just What you Know. It's WHO you know.

When it comes to being a pre-med, who you know plays a massive role in what you know. The amount of questions I asked as a pre-med could fill a book. At each step of the process to get into medical school, I would constantly be learning something new and I have a feeling you know exactly what I’m talking about. However, asking the right questions and getting good answers is not easy. I’m sure you’ve seen people be given bad advice or read things on the internet that makes you think “That can’t be true.” Maybe you’re the person who got that terrible advice? I remember being told over and over again as a pre-med that I would never make it into medical school by “advisors” who knew nothing about my background, my efforts, or my passion to be a doctor. 

Here's the scary statistics

Any pre-health freshman has a 91% chance of NOT making it into medical school. That’s just the cold hard math. And that’s not 100 random people. That’s 91 out of 100 smart and driven people who all want to become doctors.

Why Do So Many Pre-med Students Never Make it to the Finish Line?

Simply put, a lot of pre-medical students never receive the right advice. Or it comes too late. Whether it was about which class to take, when to schedule the MCAT, which extracurricular activity to lead, or even when to submit the medical school application itself – all of these are small pieces in a much bigger puzzle. If any one piece is missing it can push you into the 91% of people who are never accepted to medical school. 

At BreakThru, we don't think anyone should be at a disadvantage when it comes to knowing what to do.

If you've put in the work, you deserve the results.

The best person to get advice from is…

  • Someone who has already been in your shoes.
  • Someone who has gone through the same struggles.
  • Someone who has the same goals
  • Someone who can relate to you on a personal level
  • Someone who recently went through the process.
  • Someone who you can trust for advice.
  • Someone who has succeeded at all of these things and gotten into a medical school that you want to go to!

But, how do you find an individual with all of these qualities?

Introducing...
The BreakThru Mentoring Program!

Weeks of Mentoring

That’s SIX MONTHS of focused, individualized, hands-on mentoring from a medical student or resident. You can’t build a mentor-mentee relationship over one weekend, but you can do it over time and we want to give you that opportunity. 

$ 0
Cost

It shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to know the right person. Our goal isn’t to price anyone out, that’s why we’ve created BreakThru Mentoring to be affordable, without compromising value. In fact, our program boasts a proprietary matching algorithm so that the mentoring you get is customized just for you.

1 %
Better

100% of our past participants feel more comfortable applying to medical school after mentoring. Nobody can guarantee acceptance, but we can help you put your best foot forward.

Building Up Confidence Like That is Kind of Our Mission Here

This isn’t like other programs where you meet with some ‘non-physician admissions advisor’ for a few hours where they tell you to emphasize your strengths and bring up your grades and then call it a day – we’re here to match you to a mentor for the rest of your medical career. That takes more than just throwing two names in an email or giving you some generic advice. We’re working to create that perfect mentor-mentee match for years to come.

So How Does the BreakThru Mentoring Program Work?

Expectations

What Is BreakThru: BreakThru Mentoring is a little different than a lot of the tutoring and admissions services you’ll find. This is NOT a ‘you pay us some ridiculous amount of money and we’ll try to make you look like the perfect applicant’ service. Our vision is to facilitate mentor-mentee relationships with exactly the people you want to talk to: medical students and residents.

The BreakThru Mentors: BreakThru mentors are people who were just in your shoes – medical students and residents! We take your profile and application and pair it with our mentors to find the one that best aligns with your goals and backgrounds. This includes both MD and DO students as well gap years and traditional students!

How the PBT Schedule Works: You’ll be assigned a mentor based off of our custom matching program. This information will also help us create a Custom Learner Dossier. You’ll be able to use this Dossier and Roadmap to navigate your time with your mentor. The Roadmap’s milestones were created from these topics that are highly relevant to getting into and being successful in medical school. Your mentor will be able to help you navigate your roadmap so you can soon join them as peers in medical school and beyond. While the Roadmap is meant to be your guide, we don’t force you to follow it. Previous attendees of the program have mentioned how the accountability helped them learn more, so we’re hoping it benefits you as well! Finally, every day you’ll get a BreakThru Bite, a very small email that provides an affirmation, an insight, and an action. These three things all work to help induce psycho-behavioral changes that put you in a better position for applying. 

Mentorship

How Can A Mentor Help Me?

Clarity

In this program you’ll learn one-on-one from Breakthru Mentors who have first-hand knowledge of the rigors of medical school and the application process.

Time Commitment

How Much Time Do I Need to Spend on This?

By You, For You

As much or little as you want to give to it! Mentoring is very much self-driven. If you are busy with exams, focus on them - your mentor will be available when you're free!

Customized, for you!

Your mentor should align with your goals... and that's what we do!

Personalized Advice

Your mentor won't be a random medical student. Our proprietary algorithm takes into account several factors before pairing you with the right mentor.

Can I talk to my mentor after the six months are done?

Of course! The program runs for 6 months, but we encourage you keep in touch with your mentor for years to come! Getting into medical school is the first step of many on your journey to becoming a physician.

How will you pick a good mentor for me?

We use an extensive 97-point matching and predictive analytic system to find a mentor that not only reflects you, but also who we feel will give you exactly the advice you need to walk confidently into the future. Your background and future goals are just as important as where you stand today.

Can I request a specific mentor?

Absolutely! We encourage you to search our website for residents and medical students you think would be a good match.

In your application, make sure you specify the mentor you want. But don’t worry if you don’t have someone in mind, we’ll find you a custom-matched mentor!

Why do I need to pay for mentoring?

Your support helps compensate our mentors for their time. They are dedicating the next six months to privately mentoring you despite the hectic nature of medical school and residency. 

Why is your service much cheaper than others?

We believe our price point is a fair balance between compensating medical students and making it affordable for you. At BreakThru, we don’t believe anyone should be priced out of finding a mentor, especially when most other programs limit your time with them to a couple of weekends. So whether you are a first-generation premed, or someone working multiple jobs to pay tuition, we want to make sure everyone has a equal chance at getting the advice they need to hit their goals.

How often will my mentor contact me?

As the mentee you will be setting the pace with contacting. Expect your mentor to be the one responding and you to be the one initiating contact, at least in the beginning. This can be monthly or bi-weekly or as needed, its up to you! We do give you and the mentor a roadmap and encourage your mentor to reach out at the start of each month to check in and see how you’re doing.

Will my mentor write my essay or personal statement / do my homework / etc?

Mentoring is a relationship, not a service. It’s important to always keep that in mind while on the site and when obtaining a BreakThru Mentor. Your mentor won’t do any of the work for you, but they will be there to answer your questions, offer suggestions, give guidance, possibly help you make connections, and so on. If you’re looking for a mentor specifically for the medical school application cycle, be sure to note that on your mentorship application!

How fast will my mentor respond to my questions?

We ask mentors to respond within 48 hours to any questions their mentees may have. Why not sooner? Why 48 Hours? Simply put, being a medical student or resident is intense work and their schedule can become hectic at any second. Sometimes your mentor will simply be doing their best to keep from being entirely submerged by their work. With that said, most mentors will usually respond MUCH faster than 48 hours, but don’t fret if it’s taking a little longer than normal – it’s likely exam week or they’re on a hectic call schedule!

Can my mentor get me into medical school?

No. Only you can get yourself into medical school. No one can guarantee you’ll get into medical school after mentoring, regardless of the program. However, the overwhelming majority of our mentees all report feeling vastly better prepared to apply to medical school after working with a personal BreakThru Mentor.
