More About Dylan

Hi there! My name is Dylan and I am looking forward to working with you as you start the exciting chapter of applying to medical school. Having taken the MCAT recently (June 2022!), I know that this test can feel like an enormous hurdle. I am so excited to work with you on strategies to break this challenge down so that you feel 100% confident on exam day.

I am a non-traditional medical school applicant. I graduated from Emory University with a Psychology major and a Global Health minor in 2016. After graduation, I worked in Digital Strategy in New York City. I decided to pursue medical school after doing some work in healthcare advocacy and started my medical school pre-requisites at the University of Texas at Austin in 2021.

As an undergrad, I decided not to pursue a pre-med track after convincing myself that Chemistry just wasn’t for me. After returning to complete my pre-reqs, I earned straight As, LOVED all of my chemistry courses, and have gone on to work as a General Chemistry TA. Having to experiment with a couple learning styles before Chemistry really clicked has equipped me to help people with a variety of backgrounds learn and excel. Nothing makes me happier than working with students to find the right tools and right style for them, building the confidence to know that they can excel in any subject. I would love to work with you to find the tools and style that will work for you to crush the MCAT. As a non-traditional applicant, I am also well-versed in the challenges of balancing work, family, school, and studying. If you are operating on a tight schedule, I would love to help you optimize your time.

When I’m not studying, I love hiking, paddle boarding on Ladybird Lake, and being outside. A little bit of fresh air goes a long way when MCAT prep starts to feel stressy. I can’t recommend it enough!

I hope you are excited to start this next chapter! I am confident you can earn a score you are proud of, and I am looking forward to helping you find the strategies that work for you.

Cheers!

Dylan

“I loved working with Dylan. She is so patient and thorough in her explanations. She’s also very encouraging. She clearly believes that everyone is capable of doing well and anyone can be successful. She also goes above and beyond in teaching online, taking the time to share her screen and clearly write or draw out explanations, then giving me time to repeat back my understanding to make sure everything clicked.”

Study Plan Advising is also extremely helpful as you try to decide what and how to study during the final month. Students find that working with someone who has already conquered the exam to be very reassuring during the most stressful period of studying.

How often will I meet with a tutor? How does scheduling a session work?

You do not need to meet with your tutor at the same time every week for a set number of weeks. You are able to choose any available tutoring slot from your tutor's calendar, whether that slot is two months from now or two days from now. You choose the time that works for you! Students love having this flexibility.

Is there any way to meet in person with my tutor?

All of our tutoring sessions are conducted online, and our students find this to be just as effective, if not more effective, than meeting in person. Students really enjoy the fact that they can visit with their tutor without having to ever leave their apartment!

He has worked one-on-one with hundreds of diverse students and will carefully consider your unique situation as he provides a careful recommendation and answers your questions.

How we Matched up the Khan Academy Passages with the eCourse Lessons

Each lesson of the eCourse contains links to 1 to 5 Khan Academy science passages for the purpose of providing you with non-AAMC material to practice your science passage reading skills on. By completing all the linked passages within every lesson, you will have finished all the freely available Khan Academy science passages.

To match up the Khan Academy Science Passages with the eCourse lessons, we carefully examined the passage and question content of each one. Then we decided which lesson of the eCourse best correlated with that content. You may notice that some passages don’t match up perfectly with the current lesson. If they don’t match up with the current lesson, they should match up with one of the previous lessons in the module. We did this carefully so that you could practice your science passage reading skills on passages that contain the content you’ve already learned.

Why we don’t recommend non-AAMC CARS practice questions

We recommend practicing CARS by reading non-AAMC CARS passages but not doing the associated practice problems. The reason we don’t recommend doing the practice problems is because the MCAT is written by the AAMC. They have a very unique style in which they write CARS practice questions that third-party companies (try as they might) are unable to replicate. When students spend time on non-AAMC CARS practice problems, they get familiar with the wrong style of questioning, leading them to overthink and incorrectly respond to the questions written by the AAMC. Thus, it is in your best interest to solely practice on AAMC CARS practice questions.

That said, we highly recommend practicing your reading skills on non-AAMC CARS passages. In our Ultimate CARS Strategy Course, we provide you with 1,000 free CARS passages and 100+ homework assignments, giving you ample material to practice on. Reading countless passages while practicing the proper reading habits and strategies will prepare you well to conquer the CARS section as it was written by the AAMC.

Which books do the lessons match up with?

The books we use in each lesson are linked below. We plan to stick with these older editions of the books since very little has changed and the older editions are much more affordable:

First Edition of the Kaplan 7-book Series
First Edition of the Princeton 7-book Series

Do the chapters match up perfectly?

The Kaplan Books, Princeton Books, and Khan Academy Videos were all produced by different authors. For this reason, there are some chapters in the Kaplan Book or Princeton Book that are not even found in the Khan Academy Videos and vice versa. For instance, the Kaplan and Princeton Books have chapters that cover certain experimental procedures that the Khan Academy Videos do not cover.

Our goal in matching up the books with the videos was to correlate the content as best as possible while also covering ALL the content from every resource. For this reason, when nothing in the Kaplan Books matched up with one of the video playlists, instead of leaving the reading assignment for Kaplan blank, we inserted material that did not fit in anywhere else (i.e. one of those chapters on an experimental procedure that was not covered by Khan Academy). So, when the assignment doesn’t appear to match up right, please know that this was intentional.

*If you follow the reading assignments outlined, you will finish the entire Kaplan 7-book series and/or Princeton 7-book series by the time you finish all 10 content modules.

Do the sections match up perfectly?

If the sections assigned in our eCourse do not match up with the sections contained in your content review book, you may have a different edition. The sections should still match up the large majority of the time, but in the rare instance that they don’t, I’d recommend simply reading sections that do match up and saving the ones that do not for a future lesson.
