Premedical Series | The MCAT
Premedical Students: "I fear no man... but that thing... it scares me"
In today's episode, we tackle what many consider the biggest hurdle separating pre-med from med: the MCAT. We sat down with Malea + Jourdan from Chasing Medicine to talk everything from planning + study schedules to mental wellness and score reveal. If you plan on taking the MCAT (whether next month or 5 years from now), this episode will provide the perfect starting point to decide on a type of study plan and introduce you to methods used for a successful MCAT.
