I took the MCAT class at the Cupertino center over the summer. Each of the MCAT subjects are taught by a separate teacher, which is great because you would get a teacher who is an expert in each of his/her respective section.

I liked the curriculum. It's intense and it will make you work so hard that you will dream about organic chemistry mechanisms and verbal passages. Even though I am not satisfied with my score and I will retake the exam, I know that my score would have been a lot worse if I didn't take this course.

The resources that the course gives you are so valuable. You get all of the practice AAMC exams and a bunch of Princeton Review exams. All of which are online so you get good practice of the test format. The review books are also very thorough and well written. They also give you a FATTTTTT book of practice passages. When I say FATTTT, I mean 2-3 inches of MCAT-passages-fat. I think the resources are worth the price of the course (~$1700).

The administration is very helpful. They address all of your questions and concerns very quickly and thoroughly. After deciding to retake the exam, I requested to retake the course for free (it's a part of your guarantee that if you are unsatisfied with your score, you can retake the course) and within one day, I was enrolled in the course of my choice.

I took the LSAT prep and paid well over $1,000 for a series of workshops. The program advertised a money back guarantee to improve scores. I showed up to all the workshops and my score decreased rather than increasing. The company did not refund my money, but offered me a reduction in paying for yet another series of workshops through only their company. Without means of recourse, I finally went in to accept the reduction in another course, at which time I was told I would have to pay more than I was originally quoted, over $700 more. I feel that I COMPLETELY lost time and money on this with no benefits. This happened at a critical time when I was preparing law school applications and it was, at the time, the greatest deterrent to my goal. I am now taking this time to warn others against this company.

I took this course in hopes of boosting my SATs to a high score. Overall, i would say that this program helped me immensely as i increased my score by over two hundred points. However, friends who went to elite got higher verbal scores, while people who went to princeton review got higher math scores, so it is indefinite as to which is truly better
