What alumni of Intensive In Person are saying

I took the SIP at Boston University and I can honestly say that it was the BEST experience of my life. The classes were extremely intense, and the days long, but at the same time, the professors were great, the recitation classes were great, and I made some lifelong friends. During the lectures, I honestly could tell that Lee, the lecturer, was insanely brilliant. Not only did he know the material, but he was able to teach it to us in a way that clicked and, even more remarkably, a way that we could remember. From the bottom of my heart, I could not be more grateful. This test was so stressful. It was a point of fear and anxiety for me, and all of the people at SIP made it as harmless as they could. Thanks so much everyone at the Boston SIP.

SIP was an amazing learning experience and critical to my success on the MCAT. I had taken a 2000 hour course with a different test prep company the summer before, but I did not feel confident at all going into my first MCAT. I needed an immersive course that would provide me with both the structure and a supportive community to regain my confidence. The teachers were exceptional and many of them went above and beyond to help the students. The community of students there also helped me stay motivated and focused throughout the program. I cannot thank the SIP community enough for providing me with such an enjoyable MCAT experience. I highly recommend this program to future students who are looking for a unique way of tackling the MCAT.

Studying for the MCAT is a very emotional experience. You have to learn all that you can for a 7.5 hour exam that dictates your future as a pre-med student. The Summer Intensive Program made that experience enjoyable. Through countless sources of help and guidance, every student felt motivated and prepared. In addition to a solid MCAT score, the SIP program gave me life long friends who will one day be my fellow MD colleagues.

Emily Frisch
MCAT Summer Intensive Program
Chapman University

The summer intensive program (SIP) was tremendously helpful in identifying which material I needed to know and which material was beyond the scope of the exam. I was able to focus my time and effort only on what was useful for the exam, and was therefore able to maximize my studying. This was only possible with Kaplan. The staff at SIP was amazing. Their enthusiasm was infectious, their study tips were invaluable, and their insights into medical school and beyond were interesting and helpful.
