2019 GRE/MCAT/DAT Preparation Program (GMDP)
The GRE/MCAT/DAT Prep Program is an eight-week summer program. The purpose of this program is to prepare students from disadvantaged backgrounds to be competitive applicants for graduate or professional school. The core experience for program participants will be a test preparation course for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Dental Admissions Test (DAT), or Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) examinations. In addition to strengthening test taking skills, participants will engage in different workshops designed to support them through the admissions process for graduate or professional school. Workshop topics include learning interview techniques, writing personal statements, and applying for financial aid and scholarships. Please note, this is not a residential program, as such housing will not be offered as a part of this program.
