Prepare for the new MCAT

Take the first step to medical school—prepare for the new MCAT, which was introduced in April 2015. Our MCAT test prep class—taught by Emory faculty—combines classroom contact hours with independent study, allowing students to achieve the best possible score and increase chances of admission to top-tier medical schools. The course will cover all areas of the test, including new and significantly modified sections, while combining review of key topics and extensive advice on strategy, analysis, and approach to each section.
