What do I need to know about the MCAT?

All the important MCAT information can be found online at the MCAT FAQ page.

How can I prepare for the MCAT?

Our advisors recommend reviewing the AAMC Topic Outlines (for the 2011-2014 MCAT) and the official MCAT guide (~$30) while you study for your courses at TTU. Our students have found these resources and the free online resources available at are helpful.

What is a typical timeline for applying to medical school?

The typical timeline is described in the official AAMC webpage. Our TTU pre-professional faculty advisors understand that many students will follow an "atypical timeline," and we welcome you to our office to discuss your perticular needs and goals.
