Kaplan’s monthly series for pre-meds

Next Episode:

The Pulse: Learnings from the First 2 Years of the New MCAT

Monday, October 3rd, at 8pm ET

On this month's Pulse, we will dive into what we have learned after the first two years of the new MCAT. We will explore how the test has evolved since its first administration in 2015 and look at survey data to see what students who took the exam have been saying.

We will also be joined by some of Kaplan's most veteran MCAT faculty to discuss what they have been hearing from their own students. We will share with you what Kaplan has learned about how to better prepare for the MCAT and how we have used that information to improve the Third Edition of our MCAT program.

We look forward to sharing with you what we have learned, and answering all of your questions! So join us for another great episode of The Pulse!
