MCATs Update for 2015

Hey all you ’15s who are thinking pre-health, as you may or may not know, the MCATs are changing pretty significantly for 2015 (for example, adding a section about social science and another on critical reasoning), for which you should start planning now in your course selection, D-Plan, etc. There was an event this past Tuesday on the major changes to the MCAT, but for those of you who missed it (or just need a reminder), check out this link for the official updates, a podcast of the Tuesday event, and more.
