Our Med School Webinar panel includes:

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 CARS section unlike any other verbal/reading comprehension test. She will teach you about the mentality of the MCAT CARS section, and how it mirrors some of the more challenging aspects of medical school. Though the kind of reasoning that CARS 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.
