MCAT PREPARATION

Ursinus itself does not offer courses specifically targeting preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT); however, the college partners with Kaplan, which runs a preparation course on campus and provides a discount for students. 

We advise students to consider taking a lighter course load the semester prior to taking the MCAT to provide them with more time to devote to studying for the test. 

For the Class of 2016 and beyond, it is important to note that the MCAT will undergo significant changes in 2015, the year in which these students would begin taking the MCAT. For more information about MCAT2015, visit the Association of American Colleges of Medicine website.
