As the MAPS Liaison for the NYMC SNMA chapter, I am proud to work with the SNMA chapter at USC and we are proud to present to you Medical Student For A Day:
“Medical Student for a Day” is a unique opportunity for minority pre-medical students to experience life *as a medical student*. This year’s program will be held on Friday, March 8th, 2019 from 8 AM - 4 PM (breakfast/lunch will be provided). The schedule for the day includes lectures with Dean Raquel Arias (Associate Dean of Admissions) and Dean Joyce Richey (Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion) on perfecting your medical school application and being successful in medical school. In addition to this, students will have the opportunity to attend the same lectures as medical students and participate in mock interviews to refine your interviewing skills. Students will also get to engage in hands-on workshops and a panel session with our medical students. The day will provide a firsthand look at the medical school experience and an opportunity to meet other people going through the same process!
If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the following short and concise application ASAP as there are only limited spots available. Deadline is Friday 2/8/19 at 11:59pm. No late applications will be accepted.
My Personal MCAT Resources:
For my detailed MCAT experiences and how I raised my MCAT 10+ points, read my post: https://www.medschoolmilah.com/medical-school/2018/5/14/all-about-the-mcat
1. I found Leah online and subscribed to her emails. She sent out helpful success stories, motivation, cheat sheets for memorizing organic chemistry, proteins, etc., and if you want to pay extra, she does personal tutoring. She's incredible.
2. Next Step- Practice Tests and Questions- $250. I know it's a lot… I know! But if you don't do this then IDK what to tell you! This is a must! (On the low low low low key split the price with friends and switch out your days of taking practice tests, I never did it though) Next step books are incredible as well, and their passages/practice questions bank.
3. Princeton Review: I loved princeton review material the best. I literally self taught myself anatomy and physio from princeton books and going to their course. So I give them 2 thumbs up. If you are having difficulty with content and need good science review I suggest signing up for a course ($2,000), but if you don’t have the funds buy the books you need. Their psych/soc book is incredible.
4. Khan Academy: During my cardio portion of my workout I always had a khan academy video up. And if I didn’t feel like reading and I was burnt out- KHAN ACADEMY DAYS were my savior. They have every section broken down and it is literally sent from god. Also It is for the free! When I say sent from GOD! They also have practice questions. Incredible.
Good luck fellow pre-meds, post-bacs- master students, self-studiers. You can do this! Stay persistent and stay true what works for YOU!
