Listen Up Med School Applicants! There’s a “new kid on the block!”
There is a “new kid on the block” of MCAT study programs. It is called the MCAT Club and it is unique and truly affordable. I have enjoyed its benefits since its conception and would like to share why I feel it is a singularly valuable tool that no applicant should be without.
The MCAT Club is designed for anyone studying for the MCAT or preparing medical school applications. It supplements the traditional study programs with its frank individualized discussions about maximizing your strengths to give medical schools what they want and about proving that you are the student they want.
We all recognize that the educational potential of the internet can’t be surpassed, IF we can find the best information when we need it. The MCAT club offers members an organized compilation of online videos to quickly fill gaps of a single study approach. Although each member is encouraged to augment the compilation, it is finely-tuned as it stands currently, to apply to studying for the MCAT.
For those of us developing our own MCAT study program, the MCAT Club offers study structuring tips.
Have a specific question? Are you a bit lacking in a particular topic of study? The Club offers the particularly noteworthy opportunity to join conversation with the authors of major online MCAT study resources!
As an MCAT Club member I treasure the weekly opportunity to hear physicians of current note in their specialties. The caliber of physicians available to members is a tribute to Don Osborne’s years of experience working to give everyone the chance of adequate preparation to apply to medical school, regardless of finances.
The MCAT Club meets every Monday evening via phone, with Don Osborne hosting discussions. Don’s personal strengths include years of experience with the MCAT verbal sections and deciphering exactly what makes an effective application and interview. His speakers include doctors who have developed programs in the MCAT sciences and who are ready to help club members each Monday evening.
Meetings are taped for online use, but I find it useful to pencil into my calendar each Monday evening meeting. The interactions I have received by active real-time participation are a valuable part of the MCAT Club.
So don’t miss out! This “new kid” is one to befriend!
