Dear Students,

 

We hope you and everyone you care about are in good health!

 

Due to the public health need for social distancing related to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not running classroom prep courses in summer 2020.

 

We are offering live online prep courses – taught by our very best MCAT prep instructors and featuring three Flexible Schedule options – from May 19 to July 26.

 

Stay well.

COVID-19 Update: In response to public health concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, we will NOT be offering classroom prep courses in Summer 2020. Students who have registered in a classroom prep course will be switched to a live online prep course. See FAQ here.

FAQ
Since 1999, we’ve been asked a lot of questions. Find answers to the most common inquiries below.
Due to COVID - 19, will summer 2020 MCAT test dates be cancelled?

No. After cancelling some test dates in April and May, the AAMC has announced their plan of action for the remaining summer 2020 test dates:

• three new test dates have been added on June 28, September 28, September 29.
• there will be three (not two) test appointments per date: 6:30AM, 12:15PM, and 6PM.
• the test will be temporarily shortened to 5 hours 45 minutes to increase capacity while following social distancing practices in test centers.
• there will still be four test sections and the scoring system will not change.
• examinable topics will not change but there will be fewer questions in each section.
• registration will open on Thursday May 7 for the updated MCAT Testing Calendar.

Due to COVID - 19, will Prep101 run classroom prep courses in summer 2020?

No. Heeding the call for social distancing by public health officials, we will not be offering classroom prep courses this summer.

Does Prep101 offer a live online prep course?

Yes, we offer 130 hours of live online instruction backed up by 600 MedReels on-demand videos. The live online prep course is offered in every time zone across Canada from May 18 to July 26.

If I’m signed up for a classroom prep course, can I switch to a live online prep course?

Yes, you will automatically be switched.

Is the live online prep course the same as the classroom prep course?

Yes, it has all the same features except the classroom setting. It also boasts one advantage: we hand-pick our very best MCAT prep instructors from across the country to teach the live online prep courses.

What are the unique features of Prep101's prep course?

130 hours of live online or classroom instruction. The most comprehensive MCAT prep course spread over 10 weeks to give you ample time to digest everything.
Most instruction hours on CARS. More classroom or live online time devoted to the challenging CARS section than our leading competitors combined.
Flexible Schedule. Classes are offered more than once weekly to allow you to attend whatever class best fits your schedule.
Unlimited Free Repeat Policy. Take our course as many times as you need to get ready. No questions asked. No strings attached.
28 Workshops. 56 hours devoted to working through passages and high-yield problem-solving drills and exercises.
32 In-Class Exams. 30-minute passage-based mini-exams in every class to reinforce key points in each lesson.
Instructors hired by students at competitive auditions. We can’t think of anyone better qualified than students to spot the best teachers so we let your peers decide who we hire.

What are my payment options?

You have two payment options:

2. $100 deposit guarantees your spot but your course materials will not be shipped to you until you pay the balance.

If I only pay the $100 deposit, when is the balance due?

What is the refund policy?

1. 100% refund if you withdraw at least two weeks before the start of the prep course.

2. Prep101 retains the $100 deposit if you withdraw less than two weeks before the start of the prep course.

*If you have received the course materials, a full refund will be issued when you return the unopened course materials to us. Opened course materials now belong to you and the cost will be deducted from your refund.

What is the discount policy?

We grant a maximum of one discount per student per prep course. If you are eligible for multiple discounts, we will honour the discount with the highest dollar value. No new or additional discounts will be granted to registered students after the course starts.
