MCAT 2015 Prep Workshop 2014-2015

Are you preparing to take the revised MCAT exam? Register for the Health Professions and Prelaw Center's MCAT 2015 Prep Workshop to help you prepare to take the revised MCAT exam in spring or summer 2015.

HPPLC has fully re-designed our popular MCAT Prep Course to help prepare students to succeed on the revised MCAT 2015 exam to be introduced next spring.

The course has an enrollment fee of only $650, and will run from September 2014 to April 2015.  The workshop is designed to help students prepare to take the revised MCAT 2015 exam, in the spring or summer of 2015.

Students in the workshop will receive a computerized version of the new practice exam for the revised MCAT exam that is scheduled to be released by the AAMC in fall 2014. 

The teachers of our workshop are all experienced college instructors, with expertise in their respective areas of MCAT preparation. Please see the teacher biographies below for more information.

Please note that the MCAT 2015 Prep Workshop is not a substitute for completing college-level coursework in the content areas to be covered on the revised MCAT 2015 exam.  The approach of the course assumes that students have completed, or are in the process of completing, coursework that covers the basic concepts that appear on the MCAT exam.  The MCAT Prep Course focuses on further developing a student's problem-solving and independent reasoning skills.

Not every student will need to enroll in a prep course in order to succeed on the MCAT.  Whether you are enrolled in our MCAT Prep Course or not, you are welcome to meet with a premed advisor to discuss strategies for MCAT preparation.  We want you to succeed!
