What do you take to school everyday?

Going left to right: 

1. Cell phone

2. Wallet

3. OHSU ID Card

4. iPad Air with a Samsung branded cover sleeve (I’m a rebel like that).

5. Assorted pens - three serve as styluses. One of them is also a penlight, you know, in case I want to check some pupillary reflexes here and there.

6. Bike headlight - works as a flashlight when I’m not riding.

7. Wireless bluetooth headphones - wire tangles are gone and the sound quality is pretty good!

8. Satchel

Once clinic starts, you can add a stethoscope, white coat, and tiny note pad to the mix as well.

In total, this weighs less than 4 pounds. I’m into keeping my education as paperless as possible and it’s been serving me well so far.

Feel free to keep asking questions.

We lost Robin Williams today. For the first time, I’m actually affected by the loss of a Hollywood actor. Williams was one of my favorites - he made me laugh, smile, reflect, and more. 

He’s in some of my favorite movies - Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet’s Society - but here’s one that strikes a little closer to my new life; Patch Adams. For those budding physicians out there, have a listen.

Medical School Secondary Consults



It’s that time in the med school application season; secondary applications. If you’re currently applying to medical school and want to perfect your secondary applications to send back to schools, check out Lean On's new Secondary Consult service. This new service employs two new systems - the Holistic and Character systems - to ensure you’re getting the best possible secondary edit available. 

For a limited time, the Holistic System Secondary Consult is on sale! Get it while it’s hot!

Just wanted to put it out there that LeanOn has been an AMAZING resource for me as a premed. Couldn’t have completed my AMCAS app without them, and probably would be struggling a lot more with my secondaries now, too. Definitely worth the investment (which is, by the way, much more affordable than similar services from other places.)

Thank you Roheet and my fabulous editors for making this process slightly less overwhelming. Will probably hit you guys up for more help with secondaries, and am definitely planning on trying your interview services too :)

Thank you so much for the kind words. It always makes my day when I hear from satisfied clients like you. I started LeanOn to help make a difference and it’s feedback like this that reminds us we’re on the right path.

Our advisors - chosen for their knowhow and enthusiasm to help - are always here to assist you in realizing your dreams at an affordable price. That’s why nearly 100% of clients say they would recommend LeanOn to a friend.

Again, thank you so much for trusting us to help you find success. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
