Pre-Med Checklist from Kaplan MCAT Experts

Medical school admissions are extremely competitive: more people are taking the MCAT and applying to medical school than ever before. How can you stand out in the crowd and gain a competitive edge over your competition?

Looking ahead is the best first step on your path to MCAT and medical school victory. Our Kaplan MCAT experts have created a checklist to ensure you make the most of the 2014-2015 school year.

__ Get involved in your local AMSA chapter!
__ Meet with a pre-med advisor to obtain information to assist you in the application process
__ Explore the differences between allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) medical schools
__ Obtain information from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM)
__ Look through the Medical School Admissions Requirements (MSAR) and College Information Book (CIB) to get an overview of possible schools to apply to
__ Evaluate the medical schools and develop your initial list of schools.
__ Create a schedule of deadlines, including test registration dates, application deadlines (you’ll have primary and secondary application deadlines) and financial aid deadlines
__ Take a free practice MCAT with Kaplan and/or enroll in a Kaplan MCAT class to get a higher MCAT score
