Great for in between times !!!

Love this podcast!!! I drive to school and it is really easy to listen to this podcast while doing that and other things. I really like that they give you time to think about the answer and talk through all the choices. It makes you feel as though you’re not wasting time in commuting or getting food prepared etc. — things that take up so much of the day. Thank you podcast makers!!!

Helpful, but could be improved

Pros: the guests on the show are great. I have learned a ton from them, and appreciate the episodes where they teach concepts, such as the psych soc outline. I will keep listening for them.

Cons: Dr. Grey, while very knowledgeable about the premed process and med school admissions, does not remember any basic science. It’s concerning that a doctor would not know basic concepts such as how insulin works and what hormones could cause glucose levels to rise. I completely understand not remembering the amino acids and the like, but man, his reasoning skills are often lacking. My suggestion would be to have the next step folks talk with a half-prepared premed student. They would be non-intimidating person to learn from, and would waste less of listeners’ time. I am bored of hearing “I don’t know where to start” after each question.

The Most Comforting Thing to Listen to While Preparing

I’m getting ready to retake the MCAT and I really wish I would’ve learned about this podcast earlier because not only have I learned fantastic tips and reasonings to look for on questions, I also just feel more confident in my content knowledge than I did the first time preparing. If someone wasn’t listening to this podcast, Ive recommended it to them by now because it has just helped me feel immensely more prepared even in the beginning stages of my studies. I have no doubt I’ll be ready by May and this podcast has really helped to boost my content confidence overall.
