"For far too long I thought the “study hard” model was the gold standard in achieving high academic performance. After going through Dr. Pinesett’s first course, I finally understood why I stumbled through much of my academic coursework up to this point. I’m upset It’s taken me this long to reassess my study strategy, but am thankful for compassionate academics like Dr. Pinesett to finally set me on the right path. After going through “From the Bottom of the Premed Pack to Stanford Medical School in 21 Days”, I was able to immediately employ several practical “study smart” strategies that have reinvigorated my study efforts. Thank you Dr. Pinesett for your time and dedication in developing such great content!"

Brandt Hausmann
Paradigm Shift!

"The information in this course is wonderful. But what stuck out most to me were the obstacles you overcame. Knowing that you once got an F but still made it to medical school is motivational. Knowing that you were disadvantaged but inadvertently created your own medical school advantage is motivational. And lastly knowing that you were told you couldn't get into medical school, but made it anyway and didn't even attend lectures is motivational. It's hard not to get up and "dominate" after hearing your story and being given the tools."

"Cit. Drake! I literally reached the bottom of my academic career when last semester I got my first C ever in cell bio, and I figured my study strategies were not efficient or effective anymore. At the same time, I had the chance to attend a pre-med conference at UCSD and Dr. Pinesett's speech gave me that energy I needed to get back on track! His courses are very precious and valuable to me because he's simply the best!"

Roberto Sacripanti
Started from a 'C' in bio now we're here!

"The content in this course is the best bang for the buck! It's awesome how the content is given in a way that's tangible and easy to understand. I really feel the mantra Start Early -Study Smart - Finish Strong really resonates with me. The other courses are pretty pricey but this affordable course provides a nice foundation for improving your study skills."

Faiz Khan
Solid Course

"My favorite part about this course is that Dr. Pinesett includes a "Start Early Worksheet". I think that writing out goals is a great way to try and reach them. He uses examples to show that it's not about how much time you spend studying, but the efficiency of your studying that is important. This is a great course for pre-meds who are ready to set big goals in a realistic and timely way."

Regina Heit
Great for Goal - Setting and Tracking Accomplishments

"Entering my 3rd year of college, I've learned that there's still so much to learn about how to study and get your grind on. I've really been able to see the flaws in my study habits from Dr. Pinesett's lectures. There's nothing like a little extra kerosene to start off the college year right! There are worksheets in the course so that you will have the chance to set your goals in motion and actualize your dreams. I haven't taken Dr. Pinesett's other courses because they are a little pricey, but I think this one is well affordable."

Michael Tran
The Ultimate Jump Start Back to College!

"I am a premedical student (Senior) at a Florida University. I credit Dr. Pinesett for me pushing myself this summer semester and achieving A - and a B respectively in my Organic Chemistry Honors. I took honors courses because I had to prove my intelligence to myself first, before proving it to a stranger on an admission committee. Dr. Pinesett's advice in this course are words of gold, it challenges your current thought about your study habits, and the worksheets are a great addition. I am in my final stretch and getting ready for the MCAT. As someone that immigrated to the United States 8 years ago, I felt like I had no mentors before encountering Dr. Pinesett on youtube. Now I feel that I have someone on my team that can help trim my bad habits away and helps me become the Doctor I have always wanted to be. Take off your tutor crutches, invest in your future and get these courses. They are in a way "preventative measures" and will help you develop the tools you need to succeed in anything in life. They will teach you to respect hard work but aim for SMART work. Machismo....Damn that word is sexy. Thanks, Dr. Pinesett!"

Ahmed Altamimi
You DON'T know it all!

"I bought Dr. Pinesett's course after finding him on Youtube. This course opened my eyes to ways I can take it upon myself to improve and maximize how I study in my pre-med pre-req courses. This course is full of valuable insight that will shift your mindset so that you can dominate your pre-med courses and ultimately medical school. If you thought you knew how you were going to ace your pre-med journey, I suggest you rethink your strategy and take this course. It is concise and to the point and worth a lot more than it's priced."

Fresia Rodriguez
This Course Will Bring You Closer To Medical School

"I get good grades but have a difficult time retaining material. Dr. Pinesett's course explained to me what was going on. I am changing the way I approach everything, not just studying but also with my hobbies and current events. I am finding that I can retain and recall information better with less time. I am still looking for the best way for me to absorb material but thanks to Dr. Pinesett I am on the right path for me. THANK YOU DR. PINESETT!!"

Elizabeth Daire - Delgadillo
Eye Opening

"Worth every single penny times 100. This is the perfect example of what will come out to be a beginners first memorable investment for the future. Dr. Pinesett packs this course with some excellent frameworks on what it takes to be great at anything and reminds you that you cant have everything but you better believe your can have what you want if your willing to give your self to it and he depicts this perfectly and effectively; leaving his words of wisdom echoing in your mind for a very long time. Unreal. Every student should buy this regardless of their pursuits honestly. Realize that the low price of this course may make you think its not worth it.... You'd be wrong and very sorry if you thought so!"

Asher (Mo1) Fattouh
Unreal quality

"Although short, this course from Dr. Pinesett is extremely helpful for giving you context for the path of a pre-medical student. There is plenty of motivation and tips for framing your experiences to help you reach medical school, and Dr Pinesett also helps you outline your goals, whether they are reaching medical school or something else. Highly recommend this program for any high school or undergraduate student!"

Chris Winter
Awesome Kick Starter for Anyone Considering Medicine!

"Definitely buy this course. It will change your mind. After you finish Dr. Pinesett's modules you'll learn to see things from a new perspective that will allow you to dominate your path to medical school. Try this course out. Its a very small investment for quality content. If you want to go more in depth, make sure to purchase the 5 pillars study course and the definitive guide to dominate premed."

Justin H
Totally Worth It

"Just because you're trash doesn't mean you can't do great things. It's called a garbage CAN... not a garbage cannot! If you know that medicine is your calling, yet you are apprehensive about where to begin in the process, lack the confidence, feel you have too many obstacles, or even lack the grades... this course is an excellent foundation to start you on the right path. Dr. Pinesett helps get your mind right and gives you the keys necessary to accomplish your goals. With his guidance, you can start unlocking your potential but you have to do the work. One of the aspects I appreciate about this course is the work sheets. Doing the work sheets, personally helps make my goals/plans/strategies more concrete. It reinforces what Dr. Pinesett teaches. Keep them, re-read them and think of it as something beyond an activity to go along with the video... These are helpful tools which help hold you accountable and remind you of why you're doing this. Well done... Can't wait to move forward with the other courses!"

Are you ready to start dominating?

If you find it hard to believe in yourself…
If you lack motivation…
If you procrastinate constantly…
If you are sick of studying and studying and never getting the results…
And you are sick of watching everyone else succeed while you stress and struggle…
Then, you need to enroll in this course and learn the 3 principles that will change your life (like they did mine)!
This course will allow you to:
Develop an unbreakable mindset that will enable you to unlock potential you never knew you had
Reduce your stress and be a happier, healthier student
Beat procrastination, for once and for all
Understand how to study smart, instead of studying hard, so that you can get better grades in less time
Establish productive goals and achieve beyond your wildest dreams

"Before beginning this course, I was unsure if I could improve my study habits and maximize my potential. From the very first lesson, I realized that people (myself included) tend to take things for granted and fail to live up to actually bettering themselves. It is amazing that most of the steps needed to be a better student does not actually require a textbook. If 1 pillar can greatly improve my learning and studying, it is amazing to think about eventually applying all 5 pillars. I recommend Dr. Pinesett’s courses to anyone who is committed to succeeding."

Maximilian Bell
The 1st Step

"I am pretty bad at studying and not super smart, so I would struggle with learning, I always felt like I had so much to do and I hated having to sit down and try to study. I found this course a few weeks ago and tried out what he taught, and suddenly I have so much time in my day. I go to class knowing the material and absolutely dominating. I get so much done when I sit down to study. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who feels like they are struggling in school and needs help to better themselves."

Dallin Woolf
This really worked for me.

"The section on "Study Hard vs Study Smart" hit home for me. I appreciate Dr. Pinesett breaking down the differences between the two because like most people I have studied really really HARD but not SMART. While I thought I was trying my best, I was not earning the grades I knew I was capable of. The course was enlightening and had practical tips I could apply right away instead of some mystical theory I couldn't understand."

Erica Brown
Follow His Lead

"This course was great. It touches on every obstacle and barrier we can face and provides solutions for them all. I'm so grateful to have purchased this course. And the information that I've gathered from this course will definitely help me study more efficiently. Dr. Pinesett, thank you!!!"

Will Jones
So Impactful

"This course should be watched by everyone -- although it is tailored for premed students, I would argue that anyone with big goals/dreams and needs direction and extra encouragement should definitely enroll in this course. Whether you're still in college or you've already graduated college or applying to medical school this cycle, you learn a lot of wisdom from Dr. Pinesett. Dr. Pinesett keeps it real, and there is no sugar-coating"

Nina Huynh
Dr. Pinesett Keeps It Real

"Excellent motivational material for those really interested in going to medical school at all cost and against all odds!! I loved the inspiration!!"

Ngozi Okonkwo
Great Course!!

"Dr. Pinesett's course is extremely motivating and helpful. He teaches you how to distinguish studying smart from studying hard, see obstacles as opportunities, and remain positive despite these obstacles. The course goes beyond academics and shows you that it is possible to achieve what you desire. There are worksheets for every section that allow you to reflect on what you've learned and on what remains to be done in order to succeed. The entire course is well structured and simple to follow. I learned a lot from it. Don't hesitate, just enroll!"

Thi U.
Great Course

"I was more concerned about getting A's instead of mastering the material. I'm not against aiming for an A because I need them too, but, recalling the material months or even years after study is important to me and this course delivers the keys into my hands."

Ebenezer Yankey
Mastery Matters

"Dr. Pinesett's from the bottom of the Pre-med pack to Stanford Medical School in 21 Days is very informative and although it doesn't give all the answers to getting into medical school, it provides the well needed foundations required to get through undergrad, medical school, or any future endeavors. I like how pliable his tips are to other aspects of life not pertaining to getting into medical school. There is also a lot of humor thrown into the videos as well. Very entertaining and enlightening. I wholeheartedly recommend this program to anyone not just Pre-medical students and medical school students, but to any one interested in learning how to become a better version of themselves."

Tyree Lewis
After Thoughts

"Thanks to Dr. Pinesett for his willingness to coach and support pre-meds. This FREE course has been super helpful. I particularly love his print outs for you to post anywhere you will see each day, for a visual reminder of the goals and tasks you want to complete as a pre-med. If you're looking for an authentic and passionate Doctor to help you get to medical school, I highly recommend Dr. Pinesett!"

Dawn Payne
Great Explanation!

"I decided to go to medical school in a 3 AM epiphany in the spring of my freshman year. Since then, I've felt behind, behind, behind: I went to school with people who had parents and siblings that were physicians, that had known their path since birth and had already begun prepping for the MCAT their senior year of high school. How could I keep up? To add onto that, I'm a minority student at a predominantly white institution looking to enter a predominantly white field, and even though the question was silly, I kept wondering, "Can I really do this? Do I really belong in medical school?". This course completely changed my outlook on myself and my future career as a physician. It motivated me, and gave me the tools I need to take a critical look at my mindset and my routines and change them to better benefit me. I uncovered a lot of "gunk" in my brain while going through this course: beliefs that don't serve me, about both studying and my potential. I am making the fundamental switch to have my mind propel me, not limit me. I wholeheartedly recommend this course. You have to get your mind right before you grind, and after taking this course, I feel unlimited in what I can accomplish."

Camille Goodwyn
How could I have ever doubted myself?

"First off, Dr. Pinesett is the man! I started out watching his youtube videos and was instantly hooked. He approached every video as if it were his last, with such confidence and excitement. From the Bottom of the Pre-med Pack to Stanford Medical School in 21 Days, will start you off on the right path to getting into medical school. This course WILL give you a step up on your classmates! Get ahead with Dr. Pinesett!"

Thomas Lewis
Get Ahead!

"After watching multiple of his videos online, I decided it was in my best interest to purchase this course. It was money WELL SPENT. The information that I got was direct, simple, and powerful. The course really shifts from his youtube or facebook live videos in the structure. I got the necessary information in the proper order making everything streamlined. His down to earth explanations really facilitated my understanding of what I had thought to be impossible. Here, I was able to realize my faults, understand why they were faults, and most importantly, learn how to deal with them. From the necessary worksheets you complete after going on to the next set of videos to the Machismo, every little thing made me want to commit more to becoming a doctor. Most importantly, the overwhelming confidence that I got from the course really makes it worth so much more than I paid for. Seriously, this changed my perspective from bystander to being active. Taking control of my life instead of going through the motions. I am ready to dominate!"

Ysabella Cura

"This is an amazing course because it gave me the necessary foundation to be a successful pre-medical student. Dr. Pinesett breaks down how to instill the "No excuses, just Dominate" mindset with regards to executing during undergrad in order to reach the ultimate goal of attaining an acceptance to medical school (and becoming a physician). What I appreciate about this course is that it applies to many areas of life. Whether your goal is to get good grades, go to medical school, learn a second language, or all of the above, this course will give you the formula for how to achieve your goals. I highly recommend purchasing this course first because it will give you insight into the knowledgeable and quality material Dr. Pinesett has to offer. Warning: you will not be the same student once you complete this course."

Shanna Hardin
Fantastic Course!

"The biggest thing Dr. Pinesett has taught me is that I can get into medical school. I always had self limiting believes that I wasn't smart enough, that it is "too late" for me to start my journey. But he made all those doubts go away. I can and will get into med school. The only thing holding me back is myself. This course gives a great intro to Dr. Pinesett's teaching. He explains how to study smart and finish strong. We can do what we set our mind to. So make the decision on what you want and as Dr. Pinesett says, "No excuses, just dominate"."

Macey Knutson
Yes I can, and so can you.

"This course is needed to help you change your mind set! It will help you become better so you can achieve your goals. Dr. Pinesett goes through and breaks down topics that we have been force - fed as truths throughout our school journey, and shows why they are leading us to failure. If you take any course, I highly recommend this one, these principles will help you get to medical school and help propel you to your other goals. Dr. Pinesett's course will also give you a push to start moving in the right direction and to really take a look at yourself to make sure that the work you're presenting is your best, and if not to start now and get it done. We are all here to get into the medical field and having these courses with information to actually help makes a huge difference from the mis/ non-formation I was provided by the advisors at my UC. Take this course and you won't be disappointed!"

Hi, I’m Dr. Andre Pinesett,
a Stanford Medical School Graduate, and I am here to help you transform into an unstoppable, stress-free student.

As a low-income, first generation college student I always felt that everyone else was better than me. I spent my first year of college sitting in lectures completely confused and overwhelmed. But, I was too self-conscious to ask questions or seek help. I thought getting A’s was impossible because I wasn’t as smart as the other students. My college counselor confirmed my suspicions when I met with her at the end of the year. She told me that I wasn’t exceptional and that I didn’t have what it took to get into medical school.

I was heart-broken at first, but that hurt turned into heat. It lit a fire in me to become exceptional and prove her wrong. My mantra became “No Excuses, Just Dominate” and I committed myself to following 3 key principles: Start Early, Study Smart, Finish Strong. This changed my life forever and allowed me to become a stellar student and get into Stanford Medical School. 

My passion is helping students be their best and over the last 15+ years, I have helped thousands of students get better grades with less stress and achieve their goals. This course will remove all the harmful beliefs and ineffective strategies you have and replace them with the tools you need to establish a strong foundation for unlimited success!

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is almost 5 hours of on-demand video lectures. I believe that learning should be fun, so my lectures not only educate, but entertain. Students often say they like to binge my courses like Netflix. You will also have access to these lectures via my phone app (iPhone and Android) so that you can learn whenever and wherever it is convenient for you.

Your mindset is the lens that you see yourself and your world through and therefore, it effects what you think, what you do and ultimately how successful you can be. Student Mindset is a concept that was popularized by the great educational scholar Dr. Carol Dweck in her book Mindset in the early 2000s. She highlighted the differences between the fixed mindset (believing you are what you are forever) and the growth mindset (believing that you can grow and improve). Having a growth mindset is associated with higher test scores, better grades, less anxiety and depression, more career success! The right mindset is literally life-changing!

This course teaches you the 3 principles that allowed me to change my mindset, unlock my academic potential and become one of the world’s leading student productivity coaches. After going through the lectures and the workbook, you will have a fresh and powerful perspective!

Not at all. Motivation comes and goes and is variable based on the task. But your mindset once established effects everything you think and do, including how motivated you are.

So many students struggle with self-doubt and negative self-talk which causes them to be unmotivated, to procrastinate, to suffer from paralyzing test anxiety and ultimately to under-perform academically. This course helps students develop a positive and productive mindset that makes anything possible!

Absolutely, but it is not a study course. As I said previously, your mindset controls everything you think and do, so it is either helping you as a student or holding you back. If you are like most students, then your mindset has been holding you down for years.

This course will put you back in control of your thoughts, will boost your confidence and will move you to action. You will see your grades improve and more importantly you will enjoy school because you realize that you are capable and that you are getting better everyday!

Yes, in fact, I have the ultimate study course. The 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better Grades course is a comprehensive study system and transforms students into independent, unstoppable learning machines! The course has almost 100 hours of lectures and covers EVERYTHING you need to know about studying. It is the same system I used in college, grad school and medical school. You can get more information and enroll in the 5 Pillars HERE.

No, I DO NOT offer refunds. Why? 3 reasons!

    • Because I am an expert in mindset training. By not offering refunds for my courses, I force students to think long and hard about enrolling. Then they have to make a firm decision to enroll. This creates mental buy-in and students fully commit to doing the work and getting better. Commitment is the key to Success.
    • The commitment is so important because what I teach is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what most students learn about studying and academic success. Things that are different or challenge our belief systems can be aversive and cause us to want to quit or reject the teaching. Case and point, my study course is called The 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better Grades. I have had university administrators buck at the title and ask if it is an error. I laugh, and then explain that although most people think the more students study the better they learn, it is not true because as they advance in their education, they aren’t able to create more time and then they feel overwhelmed and their performance suffers. By teaching students to study as little as possible (I myself only studied 10 hours total per week in college) it allows students to live a life of joy, abundance and efficiency such that they always have the time and energy they need to perform. By forcing students to think about and then commit to using my course, then they will not disregard the teaching, they will dive in and they will succeed!
    • My courses are research-based and experience-proven. I am a true learning and student performance expert. I have worked with thousands of students and across the board, students who are willing to learn and willing to put in the work, get the RESULTS! I’m committed to bringing my students the best teaching, innovative strategies and unflinching support. I am committed to making their dreams come true, so I demand that they also commit to making their dreams come true.
