#3: MCAT Retake: From 499 To 515 On The MCAT In 7 Weeks: Julia Deziel
When Julia first started prepping for the MCAT, she found herself scoring around a 496 on practice exams. She ended up taking the MCAT officially and scored a 508. Although it was a fairly good score, it was below her goal. She knew that if she had the potential to do better, she should definitely go for it. For this reason, she set out to take the MCAT again, only to score a 499 on a practice exam right away. She had less than 7 weeks to her second test day so feeling discouraged, she decided to enlist the help of one of our MCAT mentors. And by working on her mindset and learning the best ways to improve on her weaker sections, Julia was eventually able to increase her score to a 515 by her second test date! This is a 16 point increase in less than 50 days, but although improving by this much is a difficult feat, Julia is proof that it is absolutely possible with the right work ethic!
#2: MCAT Master Interview with a 100th Percentile Scorer: Priya Swaminathan
Welcome to the MCAT Master Interview series!
We’re on an ongoing mission to put together THE formula for achieving a top MCAT score. And we’ve been doing this by gathering the most effective MCAT study strategies from verified top scorers, and then we bring them to you in the form of blog articles, daily emails, youtube videos, strategy courses, through tutoring sessions and anything else that can help you along on this journey to reach your maximum MCAT score.
We’ve been researching and holding interviews with top MCAT scorers for many years now, until recently we thought ‘Why not let you all in and give you a seat at the table during these interviews!”.
So, that’s what this series is for…
We hope by listening to these interviews, you learn proven-to-work MCAT study strategies you never thought of, that you can start implementing right away!
And most importantly, we hope you feel an increase in inspiration and motivation because the MCAT journey can be very tough and it can be easy to fall into negative mental cycles. But as you’ll learn from these success stories, every top scorer had to deal with the struggles and challenges, and through perseverance, through strategy, through mindset work, they all made it to the top score that was right for them.
And with that, we have a real treat for you for our first episode! Today we’re speaking with one of our MCAT strategy mentors here at MCAT Mastery who is also a 100th percentile scorer, Priya Swaminathan!
At the start of her prep, Priya was overwhelmed and intimidated by the exam and after a lot of frustration and stagnant scores, she decided she needed to push her test date back. While this could have been viewed as a huge detriment, Priya took the extra time to focus on the strategies that would bring her success on the exam, and in doing so, she was able to score a 524 in just 3 months after that!
Priya scored in the 100th percentile, which is incredible, and in this interview, we’re going to launch into exactly how she did that! We’re going to learn more how Priya studied and increased her score, how she kept herself motivated, how she scheduled her prep, what strategies she used for each section, and so much more…
