The implementation of the new MCAT has proven that students need to be proficient in being able to decipher complex passages and identify relevant information.

All JAMP participants receive CARS Enrichment as part of their Summer I experience.

Phase II - Science Enrichment in Biology, Chemistry, and Biochemistry

JAMP participants will take a Knowledge Assessment Test to determine their baseline proficiency in foundational concepts of Biology and General Chemistry.

Students will be assigned to both of following Phase II programs:

  • General Chemistry (2 hrs/week)
  • Biology (2 hrs/week)

Phase III - MCAT Preparation

Students will receive the following resources as part of the Live Online Kaplan preparation:

  • Live Online Program – 300+ hours of comprehensive prep over 6 months taught in a live online class with designated class dates and times. Provides students with access to the Kaplan Library of MCAT Preparation modules.
