I had the material that I wanted to use and a rough timeline of when I planned to take my MCAT. If you are unsure or just even a little bit stuck on how put all of that together in a daily, reasonable workload, I highly recommend Sean Studies! I definitely felt that this process was much more doable after building my plan with Sean Studies.

Sean Studies provides personalized MCAT preparation that really helps you see where you are and what you need to work on. Sean Studies helps you pin point exactly it is what you need to work on and gives you the best way to go about improving on these areas. Sean Studies doesn't just treat you as another person with the same plan as everyone else, but instead forms a plan that will work for you and will help you get the best score possible.

Sean Studies is a unique MCAT preparatory course that I found to be more realistic than Kaplan, ExamCrackers, and other preparatory courses. I significantly increased my score using this program. Sean and Haylie were phenomenal mentors and exceptional in teaching their methods on an approach to scoring high on the MCAT.
I highly recommend this preparatory course to other MCAT test-takers.

Sean Studies helped me develop an amazing strategy for tackling all sorts of passages on the MCAT, especially B/B and CARS. Sean was always quick to answer emails and made sure to check up on how I'm doing. I had Abrar as my tutor, and she was amazing! She completely changed my outlook on approaching passages and timing. After reviewing with her, specifically about time management and strategy, I went up 7 points on my last AAMC FL! For the MCAT, it is essential to have a strategy ready - the one she taught allowed me to achieve a strong understanding of each passage. At Sean Studies, their encouragement was also appreciated, they would never stop believing in me on good and bad days of MCAT prep! My tutor Abrar even set up sessions with me while she was traveling in another country! I am very grateful that I found Sean Studies and I recommend them to anyone!

Sean Studies was amazing at helping me with personal statements, especially because I didn’t know where to begin. There were 30 comments on my first draft! Which helped me narrow down my topic and theme. The comments were anywhere from “yes!! Emphasize this” to “this seems a little too sarcastic and may not go over well”. Since I’m a science major, writing isn’t my strong suit, so they also helped with how I phrased my ideas. They helped me dig deep into my experiences and my passions to find why my experiences made me want to be a physician. That was the most crucial step because it took weeks for me to finally connect it all, but once I did the words came so much easier.

Being a doctor has been a dream of mine since I visited a developing country when I was a teenager. I graduated at the top of my class in high school, went to a highly selective undergraduate institution, and attended a graduate program ranked top 10 in the US. No stranger to hard work and sacrifice, I thought with enough dedication and effort the MCAT would naturally come to me. I was wrong. What should have taken a few months to a year maximum, has resulted in a multi-year journey replete with countless tears, pain, and thousands of dollars being spent. Many of the larger test prep companies put you on their schedule and if you have difficulty keeping up with the fast pace of the class (ex. pre-work, reading 3-4 dense science-heavy chapters [with "optional" 1-3 chapters] or 1-6 chapters in verbal, homework, videos, post-work, etc before your next class in 2 days), you feel isolated and question your abilities. And once you fall behind in these classes, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible to catch up. Many lecturers actually anticipate that students will fall behind and usually make an announcement in the start of class. And if you struggle with the homework set or have questions from the reading, the instructors from the course may come in an hour earlier or stay later after class but you will be with your peers who have many of their own questions. I have been told that individual tutoring is offered with these instructors (which is highly expensive, and spent in addition to the thousands you've already paid for the course). As someone who has to work hard for money and cannot ask family for substantial monetary support, the financial aspect surrounding this exam has been very challenging (notwithstanding the intellectual, emotional, and physical stamina required to take the exam itself.) Through a series of coincidences which I like to call Fate, I came across Sean Studies. At first I was quite skeptical because of everything I've been through with all these test prep companies, but over time and being in contact with a Sean Studies Advisor, I have finally found someone who ACTUALLY GETS IT. Who actually gets ME. I have received unparalleled advice during crucial decision-making moments from a successful medical school candidate. Instead of trying to make me fit into a “plan” of some One-Size-Fits-All course, I have received personalized, individual attention and a plan that is tailored to me. A plan that fits me. And all of this has been done for a fraction of a price, and with someone who wants me, personally, to succeed. I have made a friend, someone I can implicitly trust who can advise me on the MCAT, the admissions process, and provide me with not only support, but a robust strategy. After everything I have been through, I am just so grateful.
I rarely leave reviews, but my experience with Sean Studies is merited. You have worked hard and done everything you can on this path to medical school, so don't you owe it to yourself to ace your MCAT? Take this leap.

Working with Sean was great. In only 2 sessions I was able to increase my CARS score on the AAMC practice exams by 5 points, and in the month that we worked together I was able to raise my practice test score by 11 points! The biggest thing I gained from our time working together was how to tackle the passages and answer them correctly. Before this, I had been stuck at the same score and struggling with CARS. Sean was able to help me better understand how to understand the passages as I read them and to get through tough questions. The study plan we made during our first session was also super helpful in keeping me on track with content review and practice questions. If anyone's looking for an MCAT tutor that will really help improve your score and better understand the MCAT then I definitely recommend Sean Studies!

To be quite honest, I had no idea what I was signed up for. I didn't really know what this program would be about, but boy did it change my study strategy. This program immediately boosted my confidence in those MCAT practice passages that have complicated experiments, long pathways, and data analysis- things that I had previously been rushing through because I felt like I understood them, but that I wasn't taking seriously enough. My passage scores increased immediately, and I adored how interactive the program was. Each participant had the opportunity to walk through passages for the group, with tons of support and assistance from Sean. The atmosphere of the entire program was very encouraging and supportive, and I highly recommend this program for anyone who is anywhere in their MCAT studying journey!

Just had my third session with Sean and I am so happy! Although I am still in the middle of my time with Sean, I am so impressed by how much my understanding and capability in comprehending CARS has increased. Cannot wait to continue seeing progress. Would definitely recommend Sean to anyone who needs any guidance for CARS or any other section of the MCAT!

Working with Sean Studies was the best decision for my MCAT prep! The one-on-one tutoring was incredibly personalized and helpful in tackling my specific weaknesses. No matter how major or minor any content gaps were, Sean was very knowledgeable and able to help. The strategies Sean taught really helped me look at the exam in a different way and learn how to take the test too. Working with AAMC material immensely increased my confidence when approaching AAMC questions and definitely helped me on test day. Through my time working with Sean, my practice scores have increased by 13 points! Sean is so helpful and I absolutely recommend using Sean Studies!

Sean Studies provided me with free practice passages. Sean was extremely friendly and very helpful. He reached out to me and asked how my prep was going for MCAT. He was very open to sharing ideas and gave me confidence that I could do well on MCAT. It feels great to be part of Sean Studies. One of the best groups out there.

I actually wrote a review a while ago when I had first started working with Sean and wanted to write an update now that I've finished! My experience with sean studies has only been positive; I would highly recommend sean studies for anybody who is wanting to retake the mcat. I really liked how structured the program was, and how different the approach was compared to how I studied the first time around. I've had friends in the past who have taken prep courses from large third party companies but more often than not, they said they didn't feel like the course offered them anything more than a feeling of accountability to study. However, with Sean studies, you not only get that accountability with weekly study sessions, but also endless resources, and great advice. It was very helpful to have somebody in your corner who has gone through the whole process. In my time with Sean studies, I had a 16 point increase from my first mcat score to my last full length practice exam in just 17 sessions. I feel like Sean really understood me and the way I learned best, and ultimately was able to customize a study plan that was most beneficial to me. Again, I am very happy to have found sean studies and would highly recommend!

I used the Sean's Daily MCAT passages the month leading up to my MCAT as practice. They were so incredibly helpful, I made sure to save them all in a folder in my email in case I have to retake my MCAT. All the passages were free to use!

Sean studies was amazing at helping me with my personal statement! I already had a draft written and he made so many helpful comments that really helped me focus in on what I wanted to get across.
Writing a personal statement can be hard, but Sean really helped me reflect on my experiences and why I want to become a physician. If anyone needs personal statement help I can't think of anyone better to help than Sean!!

Sean Studies helped me become a better comprehensive test taker. Daily passages, Dynamic strategy. It forces you to change, and change for the better. I wouldn’t have had this confidence level in preparing for my MCAT if it wasn’t for Sean Studies!

Sean Studies helped me with my personal statement and I couldn't be happier with the turn out. After months of putting off writing it because I felt uninspired and lost about what to write, I decided to email Sean Studies. The people I worked with knew the exact information to draw out from me and the questions to ask so that a personal statement fell together with my own words and touch. After only a few weeks I had PS done and ready to go, and it was one I am genuinely proud of. 5 stars is not enough for my experience. If your stuck, this is the place to turn to!

THE BEST company and tutors in the business. They know what they are talking about and could explain it to students in simple terms. They go out of their way to help us and its phenomenal. Bootcamp is one of the best ways you can improve your score. Doing a 6-hour boot camp was worth it and I couldn't be any happier. Thank you, Sean and the team! You guys are truly great!

Working with Sean Studies in the Testing Solutions Science Bootcamp was extremely helpful! We were taught how to approach science passages and data interpretation with a regulated strategy that I have not seen in any other testing companies. I have already seen improvement in my passage reasoning abilities and cannot recommend this session enough!! I am very happy with the result!!

Sean is such an amazing instructor!!! I was so impressed with the affordable and in depth science workshop. I felt that in that short time I got more out those five hours than I have gotten in numerous hours of Kaplan test prep.So I just want to say thank you. I test in a very short time and I am purchasing one of your tutoring programs, because of this course and because of the personal meeting that we had. Your honesty, integrity, and passion for my success gives me hope and assurance to see that point increase that I am looking for on test day. I am so excited to start and look forward to posting about my awesome MCAT score I am on my way to getting. Thank you so much Sean!!! What your company offers is incredible and thank you for really relating to the pre med students and making it affordable; I will recommend this program to anybody prepping for their MCAT!!!

Sean Studies has been extremely helpful and motivated me to study thoroughly and reach my true potential. I'll admit I was hesitant at first to sign up because people always told me that self-studying was the way to go, but after my first MCAT score, I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a tutor to help guide me. The best part about Sean Studies is that it doesn't necessarily feel like a generic "prep class" like the big companies. The tutor helped guide me through the study process so I could properly study on my own time, especially during the school year, and he walked me through all the AAMC questions I had trouble with so I could see the patters that they often employ in their questions. In addition, Sean Studies strategies for CARS were extremely helpful, as I struggled with this section before. I would definitely recommend Sean Studies to a friend.
