The MedPrep Program is a free, year-long program designed for pre-medical students planning to take the MCAT in the Spring or Summer of 2017. It combines both MCAT and application preparation to equip students with the information and skills needed to be successful applicants.

The program is open to all students, and participants who attend every session will receive a Pre-Medical Certificate at the end of the program, in addition to a free full-length MCAT practice exam with scores. The practice exam and certificate presentation will take place on Saturday, May 27, 2017. Students must attend every Saturday session to receive the certificate and practice exam (no exception).

*In order to get your free practice exam, be sure to sign-in at every single session.
