Lorne’s coaching helped tremendously with my interview preparation and I’m very grateful for his expertise and guidance. His approach was very tailored to my specific strengths and weaknesses as a candidate. I believe my coaching sessions with Lorne were instrumental in my successful medical school application.”
Scott
Medical School
“Lorne was a fantastic help for me in securing two offers from two different Canadian medical schools. He offered very thoughtful advice throughout our sessions and I’m very confident his help was a key part of my success in my interviews.”
Nina Thomson
Medical School
“I chose to have interview coaching with Lorne after my previous interviews last year for genetic counselling programs were unsuccessful. Thanks to his help, this year I was accepted to 7 out of the 9 places I interviewed! He was extremely intuitive in pointing out things for me to improve on, and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed.
I really appreciated his supportive approach to coaching and how he made me feel comfortable in a normally nerve-wracking environment. I know that his advice will continue to benefit me in the future!”
Brittany Gillies
Genetic Counselling School
“I went to Lorne for interview coaching for medical school. These sessions far exceeded my expectations! Lorne was very thoughtful, intuitive, and encouraging. He really took the time to get to know me in order to help me approach all questions in a way that reflected my personality.
He doesn’t tell you how to answer questions, but instead, he helps you feel confident answering questions on your own. I learned a lot about myself during this training and it definitely played a huge role in my acceptance to medical school! It is definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their interview skills.”
Hilary Turpin
Medical School
“I GOT INNNNNNNNN!!!! Thank you again for everything. The coaching was worth every penny and more.
It made a world of difference… and it’s definitely what put me ahead this year. There are a lot of people that I felt were stronger candidates than me who didn’t get in this time around, so I must have had a huge improvement in my interview scores.
I stand by what I said before, that you get most of the credit for me getting in haha.
Getting an acceptance letter is truly life changing, and I owe that to you. So for the thousandth time, thank you.”
Erin Baker
Medical School
“Prior to seeing Lorne Pike, I had done a few practice interviews. Despite this, I lacked confidence and felt unprepared for my upcoming interview.
My sessions with Lorne Pike changed all of that. He empowered me to present myself in the best way possible. His ability to analyze and give constructive feedback is second to none. Lorne understands what the interviewers are looking for and will ensure you use your personality, skills, and experiences to your advantage.
I would highly recommend Lorne Pike’s services to anyone preparing for a medical school interview.”
Mike Sloan
Medical School
“I got into medical school!!! Just wanted to extend a big thank you for your help in prepping me for the interview.
I really think it made a significant difference to be video taped and to hear all of your honest feedback.
Thanks so much!”
Martha Ennis
Medical School
“Sorry for not e-mailing after my Western interview, but it went great. It was more of a conversation style interview that I felt super comfortable in thanks to your help! It went so well that THEY ACCEPTED me into the DDS program for September!
So excited and I cannot thank you enough for your guidance.
Thanks again for everything.”
Bridgette Green
Dental School
“The sessions and coaching that Lorne provided were quite helpful. He has a keen eye and is able to really help with recognizing what details were potentially important to revise. His communication style was clear and on point, however he stressed that everything he said was simply a suggestion, and to feel free to take what could be useful. At this stage in preparation it was extremely helpful to refine some of my mannerisms and how I approached responding to certain questions.
The difference between applicants who are accepted and who are not accepted is very small. I believe if Lorne’s coaching was even slightly beneficial it would have been worth the sessions. All in all, Lorne is a great coach and a huge supporter of his clients. The coaching that he provides is appropriate and very helpful, no matter how comfortable or uncomfortable you are as an interviewee.”
Medical School
“Interview coaching with Lorne was absolutely worth every penny. I had applied to dental school three years in a row, and when I was finally offered an interview, I decided to take every opportunity to succeed. He taught me the importance of critical thinking, and mentioned things that were extremely beneficial in the interview. Would highly recommend Lorne, the practice and preparation were excellent. Did I mention, I got in to dental school!! Thanks again :)”
Sierra Lovell
Dental School
“Interview coaching from Lorne was very helpful in preparation for my medical school interview. He was a great help in refining my ideas, making my points clearer, and bringing out my best qualities. Lorne taught me how to approach questions for the MMI questions which was beneficial and helped me know what to expect on the day of the interviews. With his help, I went into the interviews with more confidence, less stress, and ultimately, had a great interview day.”

I wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for all of your help in preparing me for the MUN Med interview… it worked, I received an acceptance letter!!!
I am not sure if I would have been able to do it without your guidance and critiques, especially for the MMI.
Thank you thank you thank you!”
