COVID-19 UPDATE

Based on the advice of public health officials and our own concerns about the well-being of students and instructors, we’ve decided to move everything to the safety of online course delivery.

It was a difficult decision but we believe it is the responsible thing to do amid a resurgent pandemic with proliferating variants of concern.

Personalized Study Plan

For many students, honing their skills outside of course hours is vital to making the most of MCAT prep. That’s where our unique Personalized Study Plan comes in. Whatever your test date or class preferences — weekdays, weeknights, weekends, classroom or online — you’ll receive a detailed, day-to-day study and practice schedule for when you’re not in class, and for the critical weeks leading up to the MCAT itself.

Each Personalized Study Plan culminates with intense three-day cycles: simulated full-length practice exam, thorough review of full-length practice exam, and deliberate practice to fill knowledge gaps and correct reasoning errors. It’s the most powerful way to wrap up and optimize your MCAT prep.
