"I participated in PSEP mostly to improve my verbal reasoning skills for the MCAT and after taking the verbal reasoning and test taking skills sections of the program, I have seen an improvement. I am very grateful for this opportunity, especially the test taking skills section which helped me to re-analyze my outlook on the VR section and improve my score."
"PSEP has given me a lot of confidence and clearly clarifies what it means to be a PREMED."
"This program has really helped me learn more about what the medical profession is really about and how there is so much more to it then just knowing how to treat patients."
"As a student from another university, the students, faculty, physicians have all made me feel at home during the PSEP program. This program has allowed me to gain a lot of insight into the type of physician that I would like to be, and has helped clarify my path into that goal."
