While in high school, Dr. Shemmassian took a keen interest in the higher education process. He navigated the admissions process with limited college counseling and became the only Ivy League graduate in his high school’s nearly 60-year history.

Today he is one of the world's foremost experts on medical school admissions, college admissions, and graduate school admissions.

Dr. Shemmassian joins Adam to share his story and his advice on how to get into medical school or a top college/university.


  • The current state of medical school admissions;
  • How growing up with immigrant parents shaped Shirag into a hard worker;
  • How college admissions have changed in the last 10-15 years;
  • Achieving goals through developing a positive mindset and working hard;
  • How parents can promote--or sabotage--the development of high-achieving students;
  • And so much more!
