Pre-med Seminars – First Workshop (MCAT Advice)

Not sure about the medical school application process?

Have questions about the MCAT? When to take it or how to study?

Want advice on personal statements specifically for medical school?

Need to figure out what medical schools sound right for you?

I’m here to help! As a senior pre-medical student, I have struggled with the medical school application process. I want to help students applying next year or the year after that prepare for the application process, the MCAT, and selecting medical schools. All of these are difficult decisions and I would have liked more guidance.

 The first seminar will be Thursday September 17th, at 6pm in Weyandt Hall.

 If you have any questions (or suggestions) feel free to email Breanna Dominguez at fprs@iup.edu!
