Thinking about medical school but not sure how to keep your preparations on track? The Liebolt Premedical Program has partnered with the Student Success Center, the Medical Humanities Program and the Honors College to provide an MCAT coaching program to support students in their goal to gain admission to medical school. The program will begin in January 2023 and will include two to three full-length practice MCAT exams, weekly check-ins and tutoring as needed. The program is free of charge. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with upperclassmen who have achieved success on the MCAT and will receive an in-depth and personalized opportunity to prepare for the practice exam. Students will then be referred to tutoring opportunities and experiences as needed to further prepare for their medical career. Through participation in this program, students will develop strategies to learn more productively and improve their test-taking strategies. In addition to preparing students for taking the MCAT, the program will support students throughout their entire medical school application process, from personal statement review to interview prep.

All students planning to take the MCAT in 2023 may apply, but participation is limited. Please complete and submit the MCAT Coaching Program Application to indicate your interest in participating in the program.

"Preparing for the MCAT is a necessary but mostly awful part of premed life. There are almost too many ways to study and much conflicting advice floating around, such that many students experience confusion, anxiety and doubt," said Mack Ivey, the Liebolt Chair of Premedical Sciences and associate professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. "The MCAT coaching and tutoring program aims to alleviate stress by providing information and resources to help participants with study plans, content review, test-taking strategy and other, often intangible components of MCAT preparation."
