The team at MedSchoolCoach has reinvented the broken MCAT preparation space and launched the MCAT Prep by MedSchoolCoach mobile App.
After two years of research and development, the team at MedSchoolCoach is excited to introduce MCAT Prep by MedSchoolCoach, the first fully mobile solution to MCAT studying. This mobile application is going to make the old ways of MCAT studying obsolete. MCAT Prep is available in the App Store for iPhone and the Google Play Store for Android,
When we decided to create a platform for MCAT studying, we knew we wanted to do achieve three things.
First, MCAT experts created extremely high-quality content to get it into the hands of those who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to it.
Today, more so than ever, the inequalities of being able to access a $2,500 prep course are apparent. While good content exists for those who can afford it, those who cannot are left to study on their own. Adding to the already expensive process of applying to medical school (not to mention getting through an undergraduate degree), an MCAT prep course is simply not feasible for thousands of prospective physicians. That’s why we wanted to create something that was accessible to all students.
MCAT Prep by MedSchoolCoach will level the playing field when it comes to high-quality content. The app is completely free. While we plan to introduce premium features in the future, our pricing model will reflect an affordable way to study for the MCAT.
Second, we wanted to create an all-encompassing solution built specifically for the MCAT. While institutions like Khan Academy historically have provided great resource for premeds, none provide a solution for a complete MCAT course from start to finish.
For MCAT Prep, MedSchoolCoach created more than 250 high-quality MCAT videos, an MCAT study plan, flashcards and questions – all in one place. With MCAT Prep, you won’t have to turn anywhere else beyond the app, and official AAMC practice questions, which are an integral part of the study process.
Each video is focused on a high-yield MCAT topic in a format that is digestible and understandable. Most of the videos are shorter than 10 minutes, which allow students to comprehend the material. This knowledge is then reinforced with questions and flashcards – also in the app.
Third, we wanted to make a studying platform that could be used by students on the go. While we’d all love to have 8 hours a day for 10 weeks to study for the MCAT, that isn’t the reality for most students.
Between classes, extracurriculars, volunteering, jobs and family, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find dedicated study time. MCAT Prep by MedSchoolCoach was created as a mobile app for this exact reason.
Combining beautiful design, a slick interface and a user experience that puts everything at a student’s fingertips was extremely important to us.
You can take MCAT Prep on the go wherever you are. But you can also use it while studying at home on a desktop, laptop or tablet, picking up seamlessly wherever you left off on your mobile device. No other MCAT course was built with mobile in mind the way MCAT Prep was.
MCAT Prep by MedSchoolCoach took years of dedication and hard work to develop, led by Ken Tao, the MedSchoolCoach MCAT Director.
Ken is a national authority on the MCAT and dedicated hundreds of hours to refining the approach and delivering an MCAT course like never before. He has worked with thousands of undergraduate students as a graduate teaching assistant and MCAT instructor/tutor for the Princeton Review. At Princeton Review, Ken was the only tutor certified in all subjects, was one of the highest-rated MCAT tutors of all-time, and was a teacher trainer for Princeton Review’s MCAT division. Additionally, Ken founded the Magoosh MCAT division. He has also written content for dozens of MCAT books and guides.
