About the MCAT Ladder Program

MCAT Ladder Program - Content

The complete MCAT Ladder program includes eight subject courses and a full practice MCAT exam practice module. The eight subject courses are in: organic chemistry, general chemistry, biochemistry, physics/mathematics, biology 1, biology 2 (anatomy and physiology), Psychology/Sociology and Critical Reasoning and Analysis Skills (CARS). These courses were prepared by a team of experienced faculty members who have extensive experience in teaching in these subject areas.

MCAT Ladder Philosophy - Climb

After each course up the subject ladder you will face comprehensive exams combining the knowledge from previous courses until you have slowly trained yourself to put it all together to face down the real MCAT exam!

We think this approach is more effective and less stressful than trying to frenetically learn from many different subject areas at one time.  


The courses include video lessons, reading, links to other free resources online if you need even more training, and numerous practice problems. The practice problems range from short ~10-question quizzes to comprehensive course quizzes (some over 200 questions) and the ultimately full-length practice MCAT exam.


If you would like to preview the first course in the MCAT Ladder program, you can enroll, in the full MCAT Organic Chemistry course for free to see if you like it. Subsequent courses have progressively more practice problems as you complete more subjects, but this short course gives you an idea of how the other courses are laid out.

MCAT Ladder Philosophy - Uplift

Our logo illustrates our inspiration for this program: for every MCAT Ladder course purchased we give a full scholarship to another student who may not otherwise be able to access an elite MCAT training program like the MCAT Ladder. In this way people already climbing the ladder of success are helping the next group long the way. We believe in making education and the medical profession accessible to everyone! Current scholarship opportunities are updated below!

A full MCAT Ladder test preparation program scholarship is planned for fall semester annually. Other dates may be added to this site as funding becomes available. The scholarship program is open to anyone who could not afford an MCAT test preparation program without scholarship support. We especially encourage individuals from groups underrepresented in the medical profession and first-generation college students to apply to give them an equal opportunity for improved MCAT scores, medical school admission, and ultimately to increase their entry to medical professions.
