About The Med School Pulse

The Med School Pulse is the official blog of Kaplan Test Prep’s MCAT programs. In these articles we endeavor to provide pre-medical students and advisors with the information and tools to help them achieve their ultimate goal of becoming a talented and successful physician.

The authors of all articles in this blog are Kaplan teachers and administrators with extensive knowledge of the MCAT and medical school admissions. While our main goal is to deliver articles that will help you succeed on the MCAT and get you into medical school, we also want to provide information that will help you later in your career. If you have questions or suggestions for our blog, please leave us a quick comment; we appreciate any and all feedback.

For additional information on Kaplan MCAT programs and materials, please visit us at or call us at 1-800-KAP-TEST. You can also get more information by becoming our fan on Facebook or by following us on Twitter. Thanks for reading, and good luck on your path to medical school and beyond!
