  1. I was wondering if my Letter-Writers will be given the list of schools to which I am applying. I generally wouldn't have a problem with them looking at the list. However, there is one school to which I'm applying just as the sort of dreamer option. As such, I would be a bit embarrassed if they saw that I was applying there. Edit: spelling
  2. Thanks for your input. Especially that mention about Chapters! You've definitely saved me some serious cash. For those who are interested: as it turns out, I've purchased all three - TPR, EK and Kaplan from Chapters.ca. Not gonna lie, it's probably overkill and it definitely hurt my bank account. But hey, I'm willing to bite the bullet and work a few extra shifts at the restaurant. For the price I got them it was a steal. At my local bookseller just TPR alone was way over $300. As I said above, TPR and EK would've been >> $418 together on Amazon and the EK website. However, a pur
  3. Why should I stay away from Prep101? Or is that just relative to TPR and Kaplan? Thank you for asking me why I wasn't considering Kaplan. When I posted this initially Kaplan didn't have any courses in my area listed on their website. I checked again just now though and they either added them to their website just recently or I missed them completely before. Either way, thank you for raising that point! Yet, I'm still a bit hesitant to opt for Kaplan over Prep101/TPR as they only offer ~36 in-class hours. While they do offer an alleged total of >150 hrs (this includes online instruct
  4. I'm planning on taking the MCAT this summer. In addition to a prep course I was planning on purchasing a set of Review/Prep books. From what I've gathered, the predominant MCAT prep book companies to have published their 2015 editions are as follows: The Princeton Review: Princeton Review MCAT Subject Review Complete Set: New for MCAT 2015 ($143.57) Kaplan: Kaplan MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review: Created for MCAT 2015 ($163.01) Examkrackers: Examkrackers Complete MCAT Study Package (9th Edition) ($274.94) The Berkeley Review hasn't released any 2015 material yet as far as I
  5. I was wondering if anyone here had any input on either of these two companies when it comes to their MCAT prep courses. I'm aiming to take the MCAT this summer and both are running courses in my area during May/June/July. Upon a quick scan of their respective websites, there doesn't seem to be that much difference between the two. Both will cost me upwards of $2000 with tax, both have classes in the evening should I have a conflict and both include over 100 in-class hours. But is there something about one or the other that I should know about before I invest the two grand?
