Would you benefit from a needs assessment with our MCAT staff?

Our MCAT staff has seen it all. We've provided needs assessments for all types of MCAT students:

  • first takers

  • second takers

  • students who haven't started studying

  • those who have just completed an MCAT prep course

During your needs assessment, we'll talk about your MCAT history, timing, goals, and you'll have the opportunity to decide whether working with one of our Harvard, Yale, and Columbia MD tutors is the right next step for you.

After learning more about a student's unique set of circumstances, sometimes we recommend that students:

  • schedule a one hour strategy session

  • begin extensive tutoring with one of our MCAT tutors cherry-picked for them

  • continue on the self study route
