The Med School Admissions Webinar is Coming! It’s Free! Don’t Miss It! Most on the first Tuesdays of each month, at 9:00 PM EDT, except those as noted:
2013: April 2 – May 7 – June 4 – July 9 – August 6 – September 3 – October 8
As a medical school candidate, you know all too well that your applications have to be carefully constructed, that your scores on the MCAT — the Medical College Admission Test — have to hit a certain benchmark, and that you will need to make strategic choices on your school selection. Balancing all these crucial matters can seem overwhelming.
But there’s free help! Please join us for a live, interactive webinar at 9 p.m. EDT (Pick one of the dates above)
That’s when the experts from AdmissionsConsultants, MCAT-Prep.com, and Test Prep New York will provide you with the latest information on medical school admissions trends, applications, personal statements, GPAs, extracuriculars, references, interviews and the all-important MCAT. This will be your chance to learn not only about MCAT preparation in terms of content, but also the verbal reasoning section. The event will conclude with time for you to ask your own questions about the MCAT and medical school admissions.
All three companies have been in the business of helping medical school applicants increase their chances for admission to their targeted schools, and now for the first time they have joined together to provide a blockbuster hour of information and inspiration that’s sure to bring focus and clarity to your quest of getting into the medical school of your choice.
Bara Sapir, M.A., founder and executive director of Test Prep New York (TPNY), an elite academic tutoring and test-prep company based in Manhattan. She will discuss the stress-success equation, revealing how stress and anxiety can affect your scores, and how you can develop a winning mindset, the missing ingredient in most test prep programs. Sapir, a 20-year veteran of the test-prep industry, will equip you with techniques that will help boost your confidence and keep you balanced on the MCAT tightrope.
Karen van Hoek, Ph.D., also of TPNY, will discuss factors that make the MCAT VR unlike any other verbal test. She will teach you about the mentality of the MCAT VR, and how it mirrors some of the more challenging aspects of medical school. Though the kind of reasoning that the VR tests is different from the kind of logic that most medical students are comfortable with, there is method to the madness, which you will learn about during the webinar. You can learn more about TPNY at testprepny.com.
Brett Ferdinand, M.D., a former surgeon and creator of the Medical School Preparatory Course, and author of “The Gold Standard,” which provides a complete MCAT science review, proven verbal and writing strategies, and a clear approach to getting into medical school. Since 1987 he has advised medical school applicants. His course was the first to teach both the MCAT and the details of the admissions process. Ferdinand, who was accepted to all the medical schools to which he applied, developed his own techniques for excelling on the MCAT. His multimedia educational program for the MCAT includes books, DVDs, MP3s, flashcards and online practice tests. You can discover more about Ferdinand and his company at mcat-prep.com.
David Petersam, M.B.A., founder and president of AdmissionsConsultants, will provide an overview of the “whole package” of issues that comprise the medical school admissions process, and why top grades and scores aren’t always enough. Since 1996, Petersam has advised thousands of applicants to highly competitive graduate and professional programs. His company’s medical school advisers, which include academic physicians and faculty, have all held senior positions on admissions committees. His company’s website provides free, valuable information on medical school admissions. You can learn more about it at admissionsconsultants.com.
