MCAT COOPERATIVE 

Many current MCAT prep courses are often prohibitively expensive, setting the difficult task of getting into medical school even further out of reach.

To combat this, we designed an affordable program that focuses on a comprehensive review of content with a consistent focus on doing well on the entrance exam.
