In this first episode, Monika and Ariana, two MCAT Mastery team members and MCAT veterans (both 90+ percentile MCAT scorers), discuss their experiences with the exam, why the MCAT is important for medical school, and how the lessons learned from this exam can impact you in larger, more meaningful way too!

Memorable Points

  • The MCAT is so vital and such an important journey to take.
  • The MCAT is a total learning experience about yourself and if you do it correctly, you can use it to your advantage when you’re transitioning into med-school.
  • The biggest thing to remember when you’re taking the MCAT is not just why you want to be a doctor but understanding how this test can help you moving forward.
  • You have to be able to read a lot of information and pick out what is important and what isn’t. That’s where CARS can really help you going forward.
  • The MCAT journey can help you build the mental wellness skills that you need to be able to move forward in medical school.
  • I think something that's really important as well is learning how to stay comfortable even though you're uncomfortable.
  • The MCAT is not just a gatekeeper, you can really use it to your advantage.
