Free MCAT Prep | Olivet Nazarene University

Free MCAT Prep

Olivet is pleased to offer a free MCAT/DAT preparatory course to pre-med and pre-dental students who are applying to medical or dental school!  This course is taught live and in-person by one of our own professors, and it is completely free, thanks to a generous donation from an alumnus. Class meets on Wednesday nights for 2.5 hours over 15 weeks, and covers all the subjects tested on the MCAT exam!  Commercial prep classes cost well over $2,000, so this is an incredible value!
