Question of the Week: MCAT Prep

Sept. 18, 2020

Question: I missed the MCAT Panel and I’m hoping to take the MCAT this January. What were some of the main points? Is there a recording?
 
Answer: We didn’t record the session, but we compiled notes into a google doc. Some of the key takeaways:

  • Register early (registration date/time announced on Twitter)
  • Create a calendar so that you know what you’ll be studying and when
  • Studying during the semester is difficult – expect to spend more time over vacations
  • Start taking practice tests early to gauge your progress
  • AAMC official prep materials are the best and most accurate
  • See more tips from past MCAT panels.
