The Best MCAT Course For Focused Students
Our multi-step approach focuses on personalized MCAT prep which enhances student comfort and confidence while boosting their test scores incrementally.
We support all of our students! In order to do so, we will make sure you are aware of suggestions for test dates and we will review your academic history in order to see how much and how well we can prep in the specified amount of time. Our goal will always be to push you to reach 110% every day.
Before you sign up, you are welcome to call or email us in order to find the best test date and prep time for you. We will not push you to sign up until you think you are ready.
We will not send our students to their testing room without instilling as much confidence in them as we possibly can. Many students are taught to believe the MCAT is a "monster" that is very difficult. This lowers students' confidence which later makes an impact on their score through nervousness, overthinking, and reguessing themselves. Unlike other aspects, it is very difficult to restore confidence in the MCAT as many strangers do not understand the exam. Confidence (not arrogance) is created in order to see that extra boost in your score.
You may be thinking: "Why does a company care about our happiness?" Well, the truth is... because it affects your score! Studying for several hours a day for subjects you may struggle with is morally defeating. More so, leaving your hobbies, free time, friends, and loved ones behind may push you towards being unhappy. Our coaches have been there and can make sure you get out of that mindset before it leads to burnout. While we will make sure you work hard, we will not allow you to feel defeated.
The main reason we only hire coaches who have taken the new exam is due to endurance. A 7 & 1/2 hour exam requires much more than extra material. The mental endurance for this exam is gained through practice, sleep, diet, and exercise. No matter how much time you may have, all of these factors play a major role in what your score will be on test day.
Premeds are always on their feet. We do not want to change that. While we may recommend shortcuts and activities that can be cut out of your schedule, we will make sure that you find a way to fit in any and all study time. Whether it be doing review at the bench in your lab or reading notes while walking to class, our compilation of time-saving techniques will get you there. If time is still short, we will create a plan that allows you to learn the same material in a more condensed and faster pace.
Students who prepare for the MCAT will end up plateauing once they run out of tricks. Are strategies are loaded with new ways to learn and more material than you can think of! Several of our students may sign up just because of a plateau and we support that! A plateau signifies the need for a change of pace and we are ready to provide the strategies which will get your score up!
Is Hiring An MCAT Tutor Worth It?
The Reality- The MCAT should already be part of your budget! It weighs more than your GPA (which accumulated cost through extra classes, programs, tutors, books, etc). More so, applying to medical school can cost up to $3,000, with flights and hotels during interviews totaling up to $7,000. If you are not prepared for the MCAT, the money you spent so far on getting a premed-worthy GPA, along with the years you have spent focused on medical school, will be a waste. You are always in better hands being guided by an MCAT tutor, someone who can guide you and prevent you from making big mistakes on test day.
Pricing- As a new company, we price in order to draw you in! Our strategies are completely created in order to tackle the NEW MCAT. While some of the material is the same, the length and holistic focus requires a new strategy. We price based on the amount of months you prepare. We do this because it is more cost-effective for you and it allows us to be flexible for our students' needs. Even so, we are still significantly cheaper per hour than large-scale MCAT companies. We focus solely on the MCAT and offer installment plans.
Who We Sponsor- Axilogy funds a nonprofit early medical education program for premedical students.
We focus on developing:
THE ACCEPTED PREMED
We work with students from daily MCAT tutoring to Medical School Admissions to build the “accepted premed”. Axilogy offers the only daily mcat coaching program available with 99th percentile mcat tutors and medical students all of whom have had several students score in the 99th percentile on the mcat (proof of their advanced MCAT teaching skills).
Our course extends further into premedical resume building, AMCAS application development, medical school personal statement editing, and med school school secondaries editing.
Lastly, students begin the early medical school education course; a 60-lesson lecture series, on USMLE and holistic medical content provided for thousands of premeds since 2014 that reduces the learning curve needed for when you begin medical school, helps build your AMCAS application, and allows you to communicate deeply in medical school interviews.
Axilogy MCAT tutors haved tutored the new MCAT for at least 3 years and have several students with 99th percentile scores. Our tutors are your personal daily coaches in your mcat prep journey. MCAT tutors work one-on-one with each student to establish a 510+ score.
Tutors for MCAT assist with developing top-tier individualized strategy for premedical students by applying their mcat tutoring and personal mcat prep skills to you similar to an olympic coach who prepares athletes for game day.
Specific MCAT PREP focus
Axilogy focuses specifically on the MCAT because we understand that each test caters to a different group of students. As a small company, we are able to make our coaches & program exclusively focused on preparing premedical students for the MCAT.
MCAT Prep Mastery
Our company and our coaches are masters at this craft. Regardless of how high your tutor may have scored, this knowledge can only be transferred to you if they know how to teach. A good teacher knows not only the tricks to success, but the small details that may lead to failure. You are taught on how to keep a list of both successes and failures in order to improve your test results.
MCAT TUTOR SUPPORT
How can you increase your score without even opening up a book? Support! Our company was developed to remove the competitiveness from this competitive exam. We understand that our students are at different parts of their lives, so our coaches to know how to motivationally and emotionally support you. Whether you are a mother, father, or traditional student, we will develop strategies to keep you focused on the MCAT and make the "other stuff" much easier.
As a premedical student, you have already learned a lot of time management skills. We are here to make them even better! Our coaches assess your day-to-day life and find ways to increase your study time. This is also why we provide hourly plans in addition to a daily plan.
MCAT Strategy with Axilogy
Coursesite Access- You will meet with your coach for the first time during your initial consultation. This is essential to beginning your MCAT prep! Please login to your course 10 minutes before in order to launch the Blackboard Live software (this must be downloaded and thus it is recommended to use your laptop).
Academic History Assessment- Our students come from various backgrounds and we want to know every detail. During your initial consultation, your coach will have reviewed your academic record and calculated what subjects will require more focus in order to make your consultation as efficient as possible using your specified time constraints, grades, and colleges.
General Goals- Your coach will begin by assessing your numerical goals. This includes your score, test date, start-of-prep date, weeks needed, desired score, and lots of other information.
Study Skills Assessment- We will use several questions to determine the study strategies that will work most effectively for you. This is the best time to develop lifelong strategies to make classes & medical school much easier. We will also provide a pre-prep study time assessment every few weeks to determine how many questions or chapters of each subject you can complete in a given time. We will provide a unique solution that may alleviate any underlying issues.
Student-Based Content Assessment- Even with your academic history, we do not know what specific information you have retained. Thus, we go over your premed courses and determine how strongly you feel about them. Afterwards, we go over the ENTIRE AMCAS MCAT outline to determine what you still remember. We use this knowledge to determine what you should study first, middle, and at the end of your prep, as well as what subjects should be studied more frequently. This is similar to taking a diagnostic exam, except we go over all of the material rather than just a very small portion of it.
Materials Used- We select the best materials and subjects to focus on in order to efficiently prepare you. We add in materials that are also OUTSIDE of the typical test prep books. Test prep books are sometimes too concise or were released before the writers knew enough about the exam. Because of this, we have our own compilation of materials resourced from hundreds of places. Depending on your readiness, your coach decides on what materials to study at specific times in order to keep you motivated and improving up until the day of your exam.
Time Assessment - Students have their own unique tricks to saving time. Our students also have busy schedules that may not coincide with their MCAT prep. We want to make sure you still get the same amount of hours in regardless of these activities. We begin by assessing your day-to-day routine on a typical MCAT study-day, and then determine solutions to each time-consuming activity. In our books, we consider all non-MCAT activities to be less important unless they will significantly affect your emotional, physical, or academic (GPA) lives, or medical school entrance abilities. We will then plan your next-weeks schedule on an hourly basis.
Nutrition Program-We will analyze your typical diet and, if desired, create a meal plan that is easily consumable and prep-able for your MCAT prep. Depending on your homelife circumstances, we will arrange for ways to save time in food preparation. As nutrition is key to a good memory, we assess your diet and make sure you receive adequate macro and micronutrients dependent on your body shape goals (from weight loss to muscle gain). A daily nutrition guide with several other sets of information will be made for you to reference during your prep. This can be altered whenever you need.
Exercise Program- In this new day and age, most premeds perform some type of daily exercise. Our exercise programs are designed for you by a certified personal trainer who can help you with all goals from weight loss to muscle gain. We integrate weight training and cardiovascular activities free of charge in ways that can save you time but produce great effects.
Sleep Program- You must be wondering how we can even manage to train you for sleep! This is crucial for your prep. We check in on your sleeping schedule and make sure that, regardless of how motivated you may be, you are resting enough to store those last few chapters in your long-term memory.
MCAT Preparation with Axilogy
You are expected to study every day because we believe you can fit in at least 2 hours on even your busiest days. We want to make sure you do your absolute best on test day. Because of this, we don't recommend "weekly rest days." Instead, we update your plan to prevent burnout and will update your plan so you can finish the assignment later. Daily, you will log your verbal and science scores in an online program in your site. You will also journal "generalized" tips on mistakes you may have made and ways you answered questions correctly every day. This document will be used throughout your prep for reference.
The Week Before
If they haven't already, your nerves start kicking in! Our coaches will help turn them down a notch! One way we do this is by meeting with you EVERYDAY before your prep. This is planned in advance by each coach after they assess your entire prep's progress to hit subjects and offer tips which increase confidence, boost endurance, and cover high-yield topics. We want to make sure you enter the test room with a low stress attitude, yet still take the test with all of its importance.
Your coach may notice your scores lowering or your mood changing or a special event. Your coach will also notice if you are having trouble focusing and suggest new study techniques. In these cases, they consult with you to determine a new strategy. Your schedule can change or shift almost daily if needed.
The Day Before
By now, your sleep will have been tailored as well as your memory & mental sharpness due to nutrition/exercise training. Our company has essential day-before steps which form a perfect balance between relaxation and mental agility.
The Months After
Because we specialize on the MCAT, we also specialize on Medical School Admissions. We will help you prepare for applications with everything from LOR advice to overlooking your AMCAS before submission.
You are expected to meet with your coach every week (usually Sunday nights) to assess the week, create a new hourly plan, and then to receive tutoring as needed. You coach will be available during the week if you have urgent questions. Weekly strategies may change depending on your progress. As you get closer to your test date, your coach will begin to push you to your max every day through strategies we have developed to increase workload. This will be difficult but will make the real exam that much easier.
The DAY of
Good morning! Your coach will be sure to wish you goodluck (along with all of your friends & families). The adrenaline will keep you from feeling tired and we will be ready to speak with you right after! When you are ready that day, we will hold a post-MCAT consultation so you are reintroduced to your activities and also able to understand how to feel more patient during the waiting period.
Our Daily MCAT Tutor Team
Our expert MCAT tutor team work with you every day to improve your MCAT CARS score, Bio/Biochem score, Chem/Phys score, and Psych/Soc score. Our team has worked together for over 3 years while tutoring the new MCAT and achieved several 99th percentile scoring students with a consistent 90th percentile MCAT score result for accepted students.
Axilogy uses a special approach to guide you in your MCAT preparation. Many students hire an MCAT tutor and only learn the knowledge portion of the exam. In order to score in the top 10th percentile, you need much more than that. We use a coach that provides guidance in both tutoring and managing the other 99% of your prep. Tutors provide support, prepare your plan, and meet with you for a few hours a week. Your tutor will also walk you through a full-length exam.
Here at Axilogy, we use only the best websites and software to keep you organized and on-track! With Daily Check-In forms, Whiteboard and Medical Student-level studying practice, and informative blog posts, you'll feel prepared and confident about scoring well on your MCAT in the comfort of your own home (or library…we prefer the library).

Axilogy MCAT Prep Reviews
"This is literally the most innovative and effective program to get a superb score on the MCAT. There's nothing like it in the country and I am very happy to say that I personally worked with the founding coach who has exceeded my expectations! I tried other common prep companies and none of them compare to Axilogy. Results are guaranteed, and the coaches are super professional, compassionate, thorough, and detail-oriented. They will make your MCAT nightmares disappear and take care of all your worries and concerns before, during, and after you take the test. The frequent online "checking in," coaching, score monitoring, practice test analysis, "surprises," tutoring, and emotional support (provided 24/7) make the MCAT such a fun experience. Everything is so personalized and structured. It saves you so much time and money. Best of all, you will never feel alone or lost. You will walk in the exam with so much confidence and EXPERIENCE that nothing (except maybe power outage at the testing center- yea it happens lol) will stand in the way of you taking the exam and scoring in the top of the curve. Axilogy is truly THE BEST thing to happen to premed students. Thank you, Axilogy!"
"This is a great MCAT prep program for anyone looking to succeed on the MCAT. Axilogy is one of the most inspiring and motivating tutors I have worked with. Axilogy wants to boost your confidence and see you not only succeed, but dominate the MCAT while making you not afraid of it. My tutor made studying for the MCAT fun, which is something I never thought could happen. I would totally recommend this program to any pre-med looking to conquer their fears of the MCAT."
"My tutor was so sweet and she genuinely cares about helping me succeed! She made me feel so much better about my MCAT prep than before I met her. She is very helpful and offers so many amazing tips on how to succeed. Unlike other prep companies, she also helps you with your sleep schedule, eating, and exercising - all things that play a role in your preparation. There are so many materials and so much information that she offers to you to make you feel more at ease. She's always willing to answer any and all questions that you have and is always there when you need her! She makes a custom plan just for you, which is great because every student has different needs and weaknesses. Overall she does her absolute best to help you and goes above and beyond, unlike any other company I have ever seen. I highly recommend Axilogy to anyone that's having trouble studying for the MCAT! :)"
"At first I was so lost and confused preparing for the MCAT until I worked with Axilogy. My tutor has a unique teaching style to get anyone interested and locked in - she's really a joy to be around. She's so passionate about getting the best out of people and cares about each and every student. She wants to see each and every one of her students succeed at a high level. She's always there for you when you need advice or have questions. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to get a jumpstart preparing for the MCAT. You'll be confident and prepared when the time comes."
"This is probably the best MCAT prep program that one can ever find. I know the company's founding coach from personal experience. She was my TA for metabolic biochemestry. I'm a good student, and trust me when I say that she is literally the single most talented, helpful, and enthusiastic TA that I've ever met at UCSD. She really loves teaching and she actually cares about her students! With her help I scored 2nd highest out of the entire class of 260 students on the final, and I knew clearly that if I went to sections with any other TA's, I definitely wouldn't be able to score this high. Going to her section could be one of my single most correct academic decisions that I've ever made. Metabolic is full of memorization, and therefore can be dull sometimes, but her unique explanations actually make a lot of the concepts understandable and easy to remember! She also started a Jumpstart MedEd program this year in which she teaches USMLE stuff to pre-medical students, and she knows so much! We have, like, hundreds of slides to go over each week, and her explanation helps a lot! It would be ten times harder without her actual teaching, and her teaching style helps so much! She is absolutely amazing. When you are looking for the right MCAT prep company you are not actually looking for the company. What you are really looking for is the right tutor or coach who can actually TEACH and PREPARE you in the right way! The founding coach of Axilogy possesses both the knowledge and the enthusiasm for this program. If you want to find an MCAT company to prepare you for the MCAT, this company should be your top choice because there are no other companies that actually "coach" you!"
"Having had the founder of the company as my personal MCAT tutor, I can definitely say that she is phenomenal. I recently just took my MCAT (2016) and can say that without her guidance I would have been completely lost in both the material and the pressures of the exam. My tutor was hands down the most knowledgeable person about the MCAT, knowing everything from which materials are the most effective as well as which strategies are the best for you personally. She works wonderfully with students with difficult schedules (I was taking 23 credits and working in two labs) and is always reworking your study plan so it is the most efficient and helpful structure. Having spoken with other companies and even having worked briefly with another tutor, Axilogy was by far the most competent MCAT instructor I have met. But the best thing about my experience working with my tutor was her unquestioning dedication to students. No matter what time of day it was, I could always contact her with a question or update and, without fail, she would respond not only quickly but with a really thorough answer. The MCAT is something that can easily become overwhelming due to the sheer amount of material as well as the difficult style of the exam questions, but I felt like I always had direction from my tutor and she was great at always infusing studying with purpose so that you didn't become discouraged. She, herself, is also an extremely accomplished individual, both academically and personally, so she is in herself a great motivator and example to follow when trying to navigate what to do next in both MCAT studying and pre-med decisions. I have the utmost confidence in her ability to prepare others for the exam and have recommended her to every pre-med I know!"
"I worked personally with the founder and she's such an amazing person! She always goes above and beyond to help her students. She was there for me no matter the time of day. She provided me with great tips on how to excel at the MCAT. Not only did she help me with my study habits, but unlike other companies, they helped me with other things that affect studying. She provided me a list of foods I should be eating in order to help my memory and also gave me a work out schedule to keep my brain active. So many things go into studying and she helped every step of the way! They also gave me great tips on how to destress and keep myself calm. I would recommend this company for anyone who is trying to study for the MCAT."
How You Can Pinpoint the Most Beneficial Next Step to Apply Immediately on YOUR Journey to Med School
The daily mcat tutor
Remember the scene in the first Matrix where Neo (Keanu Reeves) learns martial arts in just 12 seconds. He is hooked up to the computer, and the ‘martial arts’ are uploaded into his brain.
In one of the more memorable scenes in the movie, Neo comes out of the upload session, opens his eyes and says ... “I know Kung-Fu!”
That’s what we want for YOU!
THE MCAT PREP TRANSFER
Now obviously, we can’t transfer our everything we know directly into your brain. But our team of coaches, tutors, and consultants can put our collective experience at your disposal. Combined with what you know about MCAT preparation—we can develop a plan to dramatically reduce the time it takes to study and retain information...and overcome any tactical challenge you may be facing FAST.
More importantly, we'll put any overwhelming feelings to the grave and lay everything out for you STEP BY STEP.
The mcat strategy fix
You see, between our coaches, consultants and tutors...
We’ve built a successful test prep company…
We’ve helped 1,000s of who’ve gone on to become medical students...
We’ve seen thousands of mistakes and know the consequences...
And we’ve witnessed hundreds of successful students improve not only MCAT scores, but their entire experience…
MCAT Prep Is A Marathon.
Not a sprint.But we get you there stronger than any course, tutor, or self prep schedule can. Review alone will only get you to the low 500s. Anything above that is mastering strategy. It’s tiring and can get depressing at times. You’re mentally exhausted, completely burnt out. But you’re not alone.
Our team of experts have been there, made many mistakes, did it wrong. However, it is these very experiences that allow us to save 1,200,000+ Hours of work for our students, boost MCAT scores, and instilled the belief that anyone can achieve any goal.
“I want to do well on the MCAT. "
Our students often think alike to this dilemma:
“I feel like I've done everything right. I’ve been pulling all-nighters at least five days a week for the past three months. I’ve taken what seems like a million prep courses, study guides, flashcards. I’ve even gone through at least 9 MCAT study books.
I even created cheat sheets, used my eidetic memory to look at them for a couple of seconds. Spent time teaching the concepts to some other students preparing for the MCAT to refine my verbal reasoning.
These are the same strategies I’ve used all my life and worked like a charm in the past.
Not this time… I only managed a low 500’s on the MCAT and lie to my friend’s about my real score out of pure embarrassment.
I honestly don’t understand what’s going on. I’m not incompetent or plain stupid. If I had to guess, I’d say that I’m around the 90-99 percentile based on my class based off of my undergrad GPA.
The worst part about this whole situation is the amount of pressure I’m feeling from friends and family as well as the internal pressure I put on myself... I have this drive to amount to something great in the eyes of my parents who are immigrants.
What else can I do to improve a low MCAT score?”
Does your upcoming MCAT Prep make you feel lost?
Do you suffer from feelings of isolation, like the world is closing in on you - and so overwhelmed and depressed that you see your dreams of becoming a doctor slip away?
Does it frustrate you that your current MCAT Prep Course doesn’t strike an equal balance between teaching strategy and content?
Do you ever imagine what your life would be like if you are able to achieve your greatest potential, organize and execute the courses of action required for a successful performance on your MCAT?
Our purpose since 2015 has been to solve this dilemma while producing top percentile scores for each student we take on. Because of the daily-coaching strategy, our mcat tutor team works closely with you to pass on strategy and content knowledge in a way that will save you time.
Has minimal nancial expenses...
Which preserve your morale and momentum.
Then, when you go into battle with the MCAT you’ll have OUR skills on a ‘muscle memory’...so even if something happens which the initial plan didn’t anticipate, you can react immediately with lethal effect.
But before we dive into the details, I have a quick question for you...
Which of These Scenarios Have You Experienced?
“I wasted an entire month just trying to learn how to study for the MCAT. It was very inefficient starting out. Now when I look back I wish I had budgeted this in when I first started my MCAT prep. Because I only planned three months of prep and burned one month, I was already 60 days out from the exam before gaining any real traction.”
“I expected a review course to teach me everything I need for the MCAT. But I can’t review what I don’t already know.”
“AAMC releases more material suited to the new format. My friends say that the real exam is much harder. But many test prep companies have failed to revise their strategy to be more applicable to the new MCAT style and content.”
The Single Most Important (and DESTRUCTIVE) Thing Either Helping YOU or Holding You Back
Our mindsets determine the way we perceive the world as well as the way we behave and who we are as people. It’s very easy to stay stuck in fixed mindsets - limiting beliefs about our abilities and skills that prevent us to learn new things.
We can intentionally cultivate a growth mindset that allows to stretch our mind and amplify the realm of possibilities, and who we are.
Amplifying our mindsets is one, if not the most important secrets to success.
The MCAT does a wonderful of testing the content of introductory science courses. Combine that with the critical thinking skills, and you'll make an excellent physician.
To be successful, as with any exam, the time for review and preparation for the exam has to be there. The last couple of months leading to the exam was a blur. All I remember was spending twenty hours days studying for weeks (which I don't recommend). So believe me when I say that I completely understand where you're coming from.
But more than that, I attribute my success on the exam to the way I studied and developed my metacognition in the years leading up to the exam. It was during my first few years in college that I developed the way of thinking that ultimately led to my success.
One of the biggest misconceptions about science classes is the perceived necessity to memorize information to regurgitate for the exams. Whereas some amount of memory recall is essential to learning, a focus on rote memorization can detract from the process.
What we've repeatedly observed from our tutors is that, after studying, students can often answer questions from a range of topic. However, when follow-up questions were presented, most students struggle to respond.
We believe this is the key to learning and being able to switch the way of thinking from short-term memorization to long-term understanding. If more time is devoted to understanding the reasoning behind the scientific principles, then facts will no longer be required to be memorized.
Instead, when asked a question, you can reason your way to the answer. This is the key to developing the critical thinking skills necessary for the MCAT. This test will give you information on topics you’ve never seen before, and if you haven’t learned these reasoning skills, no memorized list is going to help you.
There is no such thing as stupid mistakes. Every single thing you do wrong happened because of a fMed in your thinking, probably one that has persisted throughout your entire studying experience.
Your performance and motivation are in part determined by how effective you believe they can be. We instill fundamental principles of Self-Efficacy which refers to beliefs in one's capabilities to organize and execute situations. Self-efficacy influences people's ability to learn, their motivation and their performance, as people will often attempt to tasks for which they believe they will be successful.
Here’s How You Can Cut Your “Time to Success” In Half and Avoid A Great Deal of the Financial and Mental Anguish…
Let's go back to in history. 1896 to be exact...
In case you were unaware, the Anglo-Zanzibar war was the shortest war in history lasting 45 minutes…
During this time, the British were experiencing conflict and were rather unhappy with the regime change in Zanzibar.
What ensued afterward was a brilliant plan of attack from the Brits who quietly position warships in front of the royal palace and proceeded to blast the place to bits while simultaneously landing royal marines on the ground to assist the attack.
And after just 45 minutes of this brutal, surprise attack, the uncooperative ruler of Zanzibar fled the palace and a more ‘cooperative’ ruler was installed in his place.
The real key to winning is having both a superior plan of attack AND overwhelming force beside you...
The realist is, we make you into medical students; not “test takers”.
Get started today and see how easy preparing for this 'beast of an exam' can be.

Are My Practice MCAT Test Scores Good Enough?
You can gauge your readiness by estimating practice MCAT scores to the real MCAT. No good formula exists on how to add or subtract points for estimating companies against the real MCAT. Students end up spending countless hours trying to figure it out. We don't like it when students waste their precious MCAT studying hours, so we made a quick, rough estimate based on data from 2016 real scores vs most recent practice fl scores to determine an estimate mcat score.
data sourced from
Using Jan-Sept 2016 Scores From Reddit MCAT Conversion Sheet. We compared the most recent average scores per company to the average real scores. Remember that this is not an exact estimate at all. Only the real test can determine your score. This is a guide to help estimate how much you need to improve. Some tests were committed due to lack of statistical power. Check out this document to see how estimated scores with different companies compare to real scores: Reddit MCAT Conversion Sheet.
Remember, this score is worth a bit more than your GPA and WAY more than your amazing work/activities. Thus, you need to give the exam the attention and TIME it needs. It is OKAY to push your exam date back.

Example: Practice Test Average(Number Averaged): Avg. Score Closest to Test Date + Number of points add to estimate Real AAMC Average
Real AAMC Average(N=116): 515
AAMC Practice Exam #1 (N=93): 513 + 2
Kaplan (N=50): 506 + 9
TPR (N=34): 507 + 8
NS (N=16): 510 + 5
On AVERAGE, the AAMC practice underestimates by 2 points, Kaplan underestimates with ~9 points, TPR underestimates with ~8 points, and NextStep underestimates with ~5 points.
Forget the summer plans, forget the extra classes and activities, forget submitting your application later, this score is worth much more. You cannot advance in your application without a sufficient score. You want to take the exam just once if possible.
Don't be swayed by the typical "12 week" schedule. Your background is unique and you need to adjust your timing based on when you feel ready. Whether you choose an MCAT tutor, MCAT course, or self-study, the golden rule is to take the test when your score tells you to. Listen to yourself and take the exam when you feel most ready.

After The MCAT- After the MCAT students typically have less activities to return to. Because you must still continue working to increase your application strength, we want to help. Here is what we can offer to you to help boost your application.
Med Ed- You will gain access to our Med Ed program which hosts weekly powerpoints, podcasts, exams, and homework assignments on USMLE Step 1 Material. This is great for students who are still in the study mood! You can also join the JS Med Ed team as a program coordinator for your college.
Nutrition/Exercise- Even after the program we will be able to continue helping you on these goals as we believe that healthy physicians will one day lead to healthier patients.
Clinical Research Consultant Training - Axilogy Consultants LLC. has a second purpose in training students in Clinical Research through our Senior Clinical Associate, Dr. Kamal Tiwana. Training in this field can create a vast amount of opportunities for research in medical school and improving later residency applications.
Activities Assessment- Our intern team searches your nearby area and review your college activities to determine what volunteer opportunities may increase your chances for getting accepted into medical school.
Axilogy Team- Students scoring above the 90th percentile are able to be interviewed for intern positions in our growing MCAT company.
Med Ed Course
AXILOGY MED ED
Raising the standards of medical education.
The JumpStart Medical Education (JS Med Ed) program is a competitive online six-month long course designed as a self-paced Premed Program for Accepted Medical Students and Premeds.
Why Learn Medicine Early?
You are premed because you are dedicated and hardworking. Only 1/3 of college premeds actually make it to med school! In order to make yourself stand out, you need to prove that you are committed. Medicine is interesting, fun, and completely relevant to your basic science courses and the MCAT. So why not learn it now?
Our course is built to be affordable and comprehensive. We focus on giving each student the tools they need to further themselves as dedicated premeds. Taking a course that simplifies medicine in a way that even students without science background can understand, you will find our course to fit in easily to your busy schedule. Our interns are hard at work finding volunteer opportuntiies which will correlate to our weekly online "Problem-Based Learning" lectures along with NEW UNPUBLISHED JS Med Ed textbook chapters, worksheets, weekly exams using adapted questions from MEDICAL SCHOOLS. The course format allows you to be challenged and motivated to learn the material as compared to learning it alone. Our interns plan your volunteer activities so you can choose to continue them long term, therefore providing you a chance to build your medical school admissions resume. After completing the course, you will feel more confident in your decision to pursue medicine, volunteer with different demographics, succeed in science courses, score above the 90th percentile in the MCAT, and get into medical school! we are best in premed program, summer premed program, premedical educational advancement, premedical summer internship program, best summer premed program,best premed program.
"Medical school is like trying to drink water from a fire hydrant."
TOGETHER, WE WANT TO CHANGE THIS
The JumpStart Medical Education (JS Med Ed) program is a competitive online six-month long course designed to make prospective medical students more prepared than they have ever been to reach their fullest academic potential. We are constantly striving to find more ways to make learning easier, faster, and personalized. We achieve this by providing students with the most efficient learning tools, resources, and exposure to the pre-clinical medical school curriculum. Our entire program is self-paced, easily accessible, and designed to revolutionize medical education and make medicine less daunting, all the while propelling our students toward success!
If you are a college junior or currently preparing for the MCAT, please refer to our MCAT support first to decide if the course can be done concurrently.
JUMPSTART MEDED IS THE LEADER IN PREMEDICAL EDUCATIONAL ADVANCEMENT. Our course is specially targeted for college students to learn medicine based on the biopsychosocial-spiritual model of care. We believe every premedical student should have the opportunity to get a tangible head start on their medical education. By enrolling, you are guaranteed to enhance your medical application through advancing your knowledge of medicine along with your holistic understanding of healthcare.
INSTRUCTORS- Your online instructor creates our program materials and has years of experience in medical education with undergraduates and high school students. Our local instructors receive 6 months of training which allow them to conduct sessions onsite.
COORDINATORS- Once you enroll, a coordinator will be specifically assigned for you. Our coordinators are knowledgeable of local organizations in your area. They will meet with you to create a specific plan for your local experiences.
LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS- Our coordinators collaborate with hundreds of organizations around the nation to ensure you are able to follow our program in any city or location. We believe experiences are just as important as our lectures and thus invest our resources to providing them for you.
A NEW STANDARD- We believe all motivated premedical students should have tangible access to getting a head start on their medical training. Thus, we make enrolling and starting the course simple so you can begin right away.
EASY TO LEARN- The lectures slides do not only teach you WHAT you have to know about medicine and the human body, but also HOW you should master and commit the information to long-term memory. There are thousands of mnemonics and memory tricks, visuals, and diagrams integrated in each lecture. We prompt your memory so next time (hopefully in medical school) you get exposed to the same material, it won't be foreign to you.
SUPPORT- Our interns and coordinators are here to offer guidance in every aspect of your premedical education. We realize you have a life outside of our course! Our interns are trained to tutor all pre-med course requirements to ensure your GPA is not affected during the course. In fact, all our students have reported doing better in their own classes since they started applying the same study tools and techniques we teach in our course. Our coordinators understand the stress of the medical admissions process and support you in your short and long term academic and professional goals. Our classroom environment is supportive, we prevent competition by rewarding based on participation although your exams and activities are graded to track your progress. MCAT preparation after or before the course.
EFFICIENCY- We strive to help you learn and absorb as much material as possible in a short 12 weeks period. We do this by integrative case study-based learning alongside exams which cover every disease and diagnosing skill. Our holistic experiences can be completed in 12 short sessions, with unlimited access to the material so you can review it anytime. Our course, although live & interactive from 12-3pm Sat/Sun, can be watched anytime to fit your busy schedule.
INNOVATIVE MEDICAL EDUCATION-Medical schools are updating their curriculum, and we want to make sure you gain the most effective approach to learning as we can find. Our research team focuses on finding the most updated and research based teaching methods which allow our classroom sessions to be engaging and challenging in order to allow you to best absorb the information.
About The Med Ed Course
Background-Our instructors are scientists, professors, medical students, teaching assistants, and teachers themselves. They volunteer their time as they truly believe in the importance of spreading this information to as many premedical students as possible. While we strongly believe medical faculty can bring a lot to our program, our focus is in creating a program than can be provided to students in any area and at any time. We prefer students teaching students as they truly understand the misinterpretations and learning strategies of current students. Our sessions approach learning through case studies. These sessions can be held by our trained staff as they involve learning through strategically placed mini-lectures in each case.
A New Standard- We believe all premeds should enter medical school with a basic understanding of what is coming. They should have exposure and priming to materials in medical school so they do not feel stressed or scared by the idea. We want to personally affect each student so that they do not feel the fire hydrant effect of information many med students complain about. Our course not only focuses on education, but also experience. We will expose and increase your confidence for working with several demographics so that you can easily talk, discuss, and work with any patient you may run into. By making the course affordable and accessible to all students across the nation, we hope to set new standards for the preparedness of premeds!
Support- The premedical field is KNOWN for being "cutthroat". We want nothing to do with this! Our program is small and makes sure to interview all onsite students to screen for those who might be too competitive and bring others down. Your fellow premed should know as much or more than you do, if they do not, it is your job to help. As a future physician, you need to support your peers. Our instructors are completely supportive and expect you to provide the same type of environment for other students.
Affordability- We are able to keep the cost low due to our AMAZING instructors & founders who have dedicated their time in making the materials and spreading the course. Our course will improve you in basic science courses as well as the MCAT as well.
Scholarships- We give out scholarships to students who are disadvantaged and absolutely cannot afford the $100 course fee. You can apply for this scholarship by writing a 1000 character (without spaces) essay on why you are disadvantaged financially.
Onsite- Onsite students are interviewed and selected based on personal motivation and disadvantages. 50-70% of our onsite students are considered minorities in the medical field. We appreciate unique stories and backgrounds that may provide a more diverse learning environment for our classroom. Students with ongoing weekend activities or who are not near a local site are typically recommended for the online course only to prevent any issues arising in the course.
Training-Our instructors sit through an entire 12 week course and are involved in answering student questions. They are then involved in creating new course content that can be tailored for the size of students at their college. Training involves weekly skype meetings that allow our instructors to implement brand new medical education strategies into their own classroom. We allow our instructors to manipulate case studies to best fit their class interested while maintaining our basic content to achieve a consistent yet personalized education. Instructors are allowed to move at a pace consistent to their average learner so advance students (most premeds) do not feel "bored" as they may in typical college courses. Our online sessions are held by our main course creator thus providing you the best online learning experience possible.
Learning Made Easy- Our course materials and layout is designed by a medical student with a passion for education. She believes that any material can be made easy through stories, analogies, mnemonics, and deeper explanations/links that allow your brain to actually learn the material. With enthusiasm and fun ways to learn this vast amount of material, you can challenge yourself and gain a new perspective for medical education.
Applicable Education- It is hard to stay focused on medical care when you are forced to learn organic chemistry or even biochemistry without medical examples! We integrate all of your basic science courses in out curriculum to make your education more applicable to patients and medical school.
Holistic Care- Medicine is not just a science. Taking care of a human involves social, physical, and knowledge-based skills. We hope to provide training in all of these so you have a good foundation to build on when you enter medical school. Working with different diseases, age-groups, LGBT, veterans, and being training in everything from exercise/nutrition to spiritual support will allow you to set or even build upon your older skills! Our 20+ experiences allow you to continue volunteering if you find an interest so that you may add it to your medical school application.
Funding Allocation- majority of our funds are currently being used to develop a homeless shelter designed to provide top of the line K-12 homeschooling education to homeless children in Boston. We use the remainder of our funding to provide intervention tutoring to students with GPAs below 3.0 and MCAT prep to high-scoring disadvantaged students
Online- Anyone is welcome to enroll in our online program. While is program is tailored towards premeds, we have accepted several people who are simply interested in learning about the content offered in the course or who may be pursuing other healthcare fields. We are welcome to accepting more future nurses, dentists, podiatrists, D.O.s, masters/PhD/postbacc students, and those interested in nonmedical fields as well. Our course does a great job of explaining difficult content in a pace understandable for any background and we welcome anyone who is interested.
Example of Curriculum Week 1:
Intro To Healthcare- Learn about major concerns in healthcare such as suicide, divorce, childhood development, drug addiction, and general death stats. Understand court cases, medical ethics on an applied basis (an essential to acing any medical school interview) and the fundamentals of the patient doctor relationship.
Medical Biochemistry- Approach Glycolysis, Gluconeogenesis, Krebs, Fatty Acid Synthesis, BOxidation, Urea, Amino Acid/Nucleic Acid and Pentose Phosphate pathways and their products through medical case studies involving obesity, diabetes, kidney stones, and several other chronic diseases.
Homeless Health- Understand the sociology of homelessness and routes of care for homeless patients through case studies and in-depth explanations for history-taking.
Pathophysiology Case Studies- Explore 3 of the most common diseases found in the U.S. through pathophysiology. Understand the disease from gene/environmental causes all the way up to the symptoms manifesting in the patient.

Med Ed Course Testimonials
"Jumpstart not only teaches you the materials that are taught in the first two years of medical school, it also incorporates many disciples that enables you to become a well-rounded and more informed individual. Jumpstart is a great way to get a head start on your medical education, to get to know many wonderful individuals , and to get an extra boost on your med school application. Also, learning about the diseases put things in perspectives, which helps me to remember materials from other classes. In addition, it exposes me to other important perspectives of health care such as religion, nutrition, and certain neglected population (homeless, LGBT..) - aspects that are often not being emphasized in medical schools. Jumpstart not only teaches you the materials that are taught in the first two years of medical school, it also incorporates many disciples that enables you to become a well-rounded and more informed individual."
"Jumpstart was a fun experience that really helped me learn a lot about medicine and all the aspects of being a doctor. Thank you so much!"
"The disciplines that are taught concurrently in the lectures are immensely helpful. Those disciplines have the power to make very well rounded students who have the potential to interview very very well for medical school."
"Being selected to learn and participate in JumpStart has been one of the greatest privileges for my first quarter back to UCSD... It's inspiring to be taught by some of the most brilliant individuals who I continually look up to. The information intrigues me with the flawless designs further accompanied with tips and tricks (i.e. hilarious mnemonics) to better engrain information on my mind. Although I was at first intimidated by the CBT's, I became accustomed to the format of the tests by studying beforehand effectively. I value being a part of this pilot cohort and being exposed to material and experiences that will serve me well through my pursuit of medical school in the near future. The passion of all members are unquestionable."
"The instructors are really nice and approachable, They are willing to work with what your interests are without ignoring things that are important for a well-rounded medical learning."
"JumpStart is a great opportunity for students that are interested in the health field to get a sense of the material that medical students learn during their first two years of schooling. Not only is the material interesting and great to learn, but the program also offers extra experiences outside the classroom. From yoga classes to learning about hospice care, students gain a tremendous amount of knowledge in healthcare. I would recommend JumpStart to for anyone who loves to learn and want to be part of a group of people who are passionate and dedicated to their education."
"The JumpStart Program has an absolutely amazing staff that go the extra mile for you. The program helps students grasp rigorous scientific concepts, but also brings social issues into perspective. Being able to understand and bring together the social issues and science will benefit everyone in their future medical endeavors. I highly recommend this program for prospective healthcare students that want to gain an edge before they enter professional schools."
