    MCAT Preparation

    For MCAT prep, I followed the SN2ed plan published on the SDN forums. However, I didn’t use the Examkrackers 101 books as I found them to be not very challenging. I used Berkeley Review for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and O-Chem. And TPRH Verbal Workbook and EK 1001 Passages in Verbal Reasoning. On average, I studied probably 6-8 hours, 6 days each week from June 1st – September 5th.

    Letters of Evaluation

    - 1 from my research PI, have known for 2 years
    - 1 from my O-Chem. Prof
    - 1 from my Analytical Chem. Prof
    - 1 from my Abnormal Psych. Prof and psych. research PI
    - 1 from the Supplemental Instruction Coordinator I did SI under

    My school does not have a pre-med committee, so I am sending all my letters together as a letter packet. My pre-med advisor will be completing a short cover letter for me discussing my qualifications, etc.
