Frequently Asked Questions

Message Us Any Other Questions You May Have!

  • How Long Do I Have To Complete This Course?

    One of the best features of this course is the self-directed nature of it. That being said, some MCAT retakers work best with more structure - please contact Sean if this is the case. We recommend that you take about 6 weeks to complete this course, but you can take up to a year! This way you can study at your own pace and learn the skills in the best way possible.

  • What Makes This Prep Course Specific To Retakers?

    We worked with MCAT Retakers to research why students need to retake, what challenges retakers face, and how they can be better prepared for the exam. We then used that research to formulate this course. No other prep course has specifically designed to fit your needs as an MCAT Retaker.

  • Do I Need Outside Material To Complete This Course?

    Yes, you should purchase the AAMC practice material to complete this course. The AAMC practice material is extremely representative of the actual exam.

  • I Used The AAMC Material To Practice When I First Took The Exam. What Should I Do?

    We understand the uncertainty that comes with retaking the MCAT, especially when it comes to resources. You should still ensure that you have access to the AAMC material when taking this course. Having previously completed the AAMC material does not put you at a disadvantage; in fact, most of our students have already gone through the material multiple times. It does not matter how many times you have gone through the practice material - you have never gone through it like this before!
