Alex has been a leader in academic tutoring, test preparation, and curriculum design for years. At UCLA, he maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout his entire undergraduate career while expanding CurveSetter's original academic tutoring division. Alex took the new MCAT in 2015 after independently designing a 3-month self-study plan. Without having taken a number of pre-requisite courses, he achieved a 100th percentile score (524) and then began to offer MCAT prep services through CurveSetter, tutoring students across the United States, Canada, England and the UAE. He then went on to graduate first in his class both in the neuroscience department and the College of Letters and Science. Alex received medical school admissions offers from some of the highest ranked programs in the United States including UCSF, WashU, Duke, UChicago, NYU, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Mt. Sinai and more before withdrawing from a number of others with standing interview offers. He is currently a fourth-year medical student at his top choice - UCSF School of Medicine.
