The Medical College Admission Test, or MCAT, is a computer-based, standardized exam required to apply to medical school in the United States. It is designed to test your understanding of scientific concepts and principles, critical thinking, and written analysis. It is also the source of a lot of stress and anxiety for prospective applicants, and there are many misconceptions about what the test is, how to study for it, and when to take it.

Join the Health Professions Advising team -- Dean Richard Aronson, Health Professions Advisor and Becca Tishler, Assistant Director of Health Professions Advising -- for a comprehensive overview of the MCAT exam, a discussion of some of the myths of when to take it and how to prepare, and a summary of best practices for approaching the test, guidance informed by over a decade of successfully advising Amherst applicants.

Everyone is welcome! This event is open to all class years and anyone interested in learning more about the MCAT exam; you do not need to be certain that you will apply to medical school in order to attend!
