MCAT Prep Course

Because we only serve Washington University students, the course is specifically designed with your abilities and needs in mind. When our students give us feedback, it has a direct and immediate impact on our course design.

Course Details

  • All classes are held on campus.
  • Instructors are top Washington University MD/PhD students.
  • As part of the class, there are smaller study groups of 7-9 students facilitated by experienced Cornerstone academic mentors.
  • The cost is much lower than commercial courses and can be charged to your student account. Textbooks are included in the price.
  • Unlike other courses, we provide screening and readiness advising to ensure that students have the prerequisites necessary to succeed in the course and on the MCAT.
