How to Choose an MCAT Date – October 2019

Choosing an MCAT date is not easy. With 30 test dates to choose from, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Your MCAT plays a huge role in applying to medical school, and putting off your MCAT can mean delaying your application. The perfect test date will allow you to juggle your everyday life and a robust MCAT prep study plan. Choosing the wrong test date can leave you scrambling to prep and potentially limit your retake options. So, how do you decide?

In this session, Next Step instructor Phil Hawkins breaks down all the factors you should take into account when picking an MCAT date, plus the how different prep styles can affect your decision. If you’re thinking about taking the MCAT next year, this is your first step!
