“I increased my MCAT score by 22 points and was accepted to 80% of the medical schools that I applied to. I attribute much of my success to NextStep.”

"Awesome course. I loved the amount of exams and practice content available. Truly worth it. Great price compared to competitors as well. I love the direction of the company and will continue recommending more and more people to use Next Step for their MCAT studying.”

"I have tried Kaplan and I noticed the difference. NextStep was more organized, focused platform and I did well on the exam because of that.”

"My total scaled score was 518. Next Step really is the best and I am so happy to have worked with them.”

"I believe the office hours really set this online program apart from others. Phil was a great "tutor" and I truly believe he impacted my score for the better.”

"I just got my score back today, and I got a 517! Thank you so much for pairing me with Armin and being so amenable to me switching tutors in the beginning. He was really helpful in my studying process and played a large role in my progression with the MCAT. I’m really pleased with my score. From 505 to 517. I’ll take it.”

"Thank you for all the help. I especially appreciated the reasoning strategies as they helped to reduce my worry about the exam.”

"I would recommend NextStep to anyone looking to start studying or revamp their studying. Not only is their material great but the layout and individual schedule they make for you is amazing. I also got a tutor through them and he was able to help me figure out my weak areas and how to help me prepare quickly and effectively.”

"My experience was really positive! My tutor was very encouraging and really helped me pick out my problem spots. I learned how to fix the areas I was struggling in and improved my score by almost 10 points."

Detailed Personalized MCAT Study Planner Tool

The Best Study Planning Tool

The AAMC recommends that MCAT students spend 300+ hours preparing for the exam. That’s a lot! Most MCAT prep companies leave it up to you to figure out your study schedule. That’s what separates Next Step from other online prep courses.

Just tell us your start date, exam date, and how many hours a week you can put in — select days off and preferred days to take full-length practice exams — and our study planning tool’s proprietary algorithm delivers a schedule that takes you through the entire course, with a manageable, efficient workload, ensuring that you’re ready to reach your potential on exam day.

Your study calendar is completely customizable. Just drag and drop assignments anytime to adjust your calendar, keeping you on track and moving forward.

Live-Online Small-Group Office Hours

There’s no substitute for live, expert instruction, which is why the Next Step Online MCAT Course comes with unlimited access to live-online office hours, five days a week, and often more. Over each two-hour session, one of our elite instructors will guide you through a specific area of the MCAT, explaining the subject matter and how it fits into the exam. And this isn’t just a lecture. Each session is interactive and problem-focused, with plenty of time to ask questions along the way.

Nothing in life is guaranteed. Except the world’s best MCAT prep. Here’s how it works:

  • You’re a first time Next Step student, enrolled in the Online MCAT Course and have paid in full.
  • You email a screenshot of the half-length diagnostic score to guarantee@nextsteptestprep.com before the first lesson of your online course and before taking any full length practice exams.
  • You complete the Online MCAT Course and take the next official administration of the MCAT.

    Completing the course means having watched all of the core lesson videos in full, taken at least five (5) of the ten (10) full-length practice exams and two (2) of the AAMC tests under “test-day” conditions.
  • Within three months of completing the course, you show us your official AAMC score report. If you don’t score higher on the official test than you did on the half-length diagnostic exam, you can either repeat the course for free or receive a full refund.
