MCAT-2015 will be more than two hours longer and require knowledge of three new disciplines that are NOT required for the current form of the exam (Biochemistry, Psychology and Sociology). Test smart, by testing now—before these pending changes require you to complete three additional prerequisite courses and endure a significantly longer test day.
Students have three Altius course options that will prepare them for one of the remaining 2014-2015 test dates. The last possible date you can sit for the current form of the exam is January 23rd, 2015. A list of all of the possible exam dates between now and January 23rd is available here.
Every student should consult with their premedical advisor to devise a plan specific to their unique circumstances. In general, however, if you are relatively close to being ready to take the exam, testing before the MCAT change could be a very wise decision that saves you a significant amount of precious time and resources. Before taking the current form of the MCAT you will need to complete one year each of physics, biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. If you have only one or two semesters left to complete these classes you may want to consider wrapping them up more quickly by taking summer courses or independent study. It is also possible to finish one or two classes concurrently while taking the Altius program. Here are a few hypothetical examples to consider and discuss with your advisor:
Student #1: Has already finished General Chemistry and Biology and is finishing the 1st semester of O-Chem this spring. She still needs to take the 2nd semester of O-Chem and both semesters of Physics. This student could reasonably choose to take Physics over the summer, and finish their last semester of O-Chem concurrently while taking the Altius Short-Track Program during the fall of 2014. She would then take a January 2015 exam.
Student #2: Is currently enrolled in the 2nd semesters of both General Chemistry and Biology. He still needs to take both semesters of Physics and both semesters of O-Chem. While potentially possible, finishing all of these prerequisites, PLUS an MCAT prep course before January 2015 will be very difficult and is likely to negatively impact his grades. This student is most likely better off to focus the entire 2014-15 school year on wrapping up their prerequisites--including the new sociology, psychology and biochemistry requirements--and then take MCAT-2015 sometime thereafter.
Student #3: Has finished all of his prerequisites except for the 2nd semester of Physics. This student could easily complete that final semester during the fall of 2014 and sit for a January 2015 exam. He could even take the 2014 Summer Full-Immersion Program given the fact that most of the physics topics on the MCAT come from the 1st semester and the Altius program can easily teach him the remaining subjects from scratch.
There are many reasons, so you'll want to check out our website and do your own careful research to understand them all. Here a few reasons to choose Altius just to get you started:
Space truly is limited. Over the last two months we have been working almost daily with students from around the country who wanted to start prepping now, but are unable to because our current courses are all full. We don't use the "space is limited" gimmick like so many other programs do to give some false sense of urgency. However, we do want students to be aware that these courses will fill to capacity and there is no way to "squeeze in" additional students once our private tutors are full.
