What our clients say

After being declined for pharmacy school, I decided that I needed professional guidance. My first attempt at the MMI, I left feeling defeated and unprepared. I wondered how I could have improved my interview skills. I began researching coaching services and came across Blue Dolphin. Gordon’s website stood out from the others and after learning about his experience coaching in the health care profession, I decided to try it. I was even more impressed when I started my coaching sessions, he provided examples of questions from every category for the MMI. Each session I had the opportunity to practice questions and receive helpful feedback on my answers. If I was struggling with a certain type of question Gordon would suggest different ways to approach it and give homework to prepare for the next session. With each passing session my confidence increased, and I started to feel more comfortable about the MMI. By my last session, I was confident that I would do really well on my interview. On the days leading up to my interview, Gordon offered helpful tips on what I should practice and how I should use my time wisely. I found Gordon to be a great coach, affordable and extremely helpful. I am happy to say that I have been accepted to Pharmacy school!
