Strategies for Standardized Tests: Mastering the MCAT® Exam and Beyond

Are you a great student but you struggle with anxiety, overthinking or low confidence before high stakes exams? Do you believe you’re simply ‘bad at taking standardized exams,’ and see the MCAT as an obstacle preventing you from becoming a physician?

Medical Education Learning Specialist Dr. Shavonia Wynn will explain why tests are structured the way they are, and share strategies to set you up for success on the MCAT as well as the subsequent standardized exams you’ll encounter throughout your medical education and career. Dr. Wynn will share real-world examples from more than a decade of working with premeds and medical students so you, too can put these learning strategies into practice. The session will also feature current medical students who will share their experiences overcoming test taking challenges.

How to Tell Your Story in Your Application

Your medical school application is unique to your specific lived experience. Where you were raised, the household you grew up in, your motivations, your education, and the challenges you’ve faced have all shaped the person you are today. But when you’re filling out the same application as everyone else, how do you communicate your unique perspective and stand out? 


In this session you’ll learn how to leverage the different parts of the application to highlight your story,  share a narrative about who you are, how you got to where you are now, and why you want to become a doctor. Speakers will include an admissions dean, a prehealth advisor, a current medical student and a student applying in the upcoming cycle. Whether you are just starting your journey or submitting your application this summer, you’ll gain insight and practical tips on how to make your application uniquely you.
