In their own words...
"My time here has instilled within me a special kind of character, one that only comes as a result of a community geared toward opening your mind... not just filling your mind with more information."
- Blair Garnett, Class of '10, from NC

MCAT – Medical College Admission Test


This is required by almost all medical schools.  Knowledge in Physical Sciences, Verbal Reasoning, Writing Sample, and Biological Sciences as well as critical analysis and reasoning skills are tested.  This is usually taken during the spring semester of your 3rd college year. 

The exam is being updated, the writing section will be removed in 2013, and the exam further modified for 2015.  There are 4 sections in the 2015 exam:


1) Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems,


2) Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems,


3) Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior, and


4) Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

Many review books and practice tests are available for the MCAT.  Make sure to find one that fits your study style and is current.

It is useful to start thinking about reviewing for the MCAT during the summer after your sophomore year.  Plan to take the MCAT during the spring of your Junior year.  Thinking about it early will help you find preparation materials or take a preparation course.
