Application Launchpad, Session I: The MCAT

November 13, 2020
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This session is conceived as a complement to the MCAT panel that occurred on October 27. At the panel, students will hear testimony from peers who recently took the exam who will discuss how they prepared, scheduling decisions they faced, and the experience of taking the exam. The purpose of this session is to provide some basic information about the exam, its contents, length, scoring, and purpose, scheduling decisions, developing a plan of study, resources (free and low-cost), the Fee Assistance Program, and accommodations for exams. (Focus will be on the MCAT because ~95% of GS prehealth students are premed and almost all of them have to take this exam.) The Zoom link to participate will be emailed to registrants prior to the start of the event.

The Application Launchpad Events Series
The Application Launchpad Events Series is intended for GS premeds (postbacs and undergrads) who have recently attended a General Applicants Meeting and are planning to apply to medical (or dental or veterinary) school over the summer 2021 for the Entering Class of 2022 (EC22). The series starts in the fall semester because the application cycle will begin before you know it, and there are some actions it may be worth taking now. Also, having some basic information about applying and knowing what to anticipate could be useful. We hope these discussions help to inform individual consultations you may have with your advisor.
