The Medical College Admission Test, or MCAT, is more than just a formality for medical school admissions. It is a multiple-choice, computer-based, standardized exam that is required for admission to med schools in the United States and Canada.
The MCAT is developed and administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) to provide med schools with common measures for comparing applicants’ qualifications and preparedness for med school. Med school admissions committees look at your MCAT score, along with your academic record and supporting materials, to assess your foundations to build a successful medical career.
The MCAT contains integrated sections, which means that subjects are not tested independently, but include overlapping areas of concentration, which is how you’ll encounter these subjects in medical school.
The integrated content on the MCAT is broken down into four test sections that comprise the exam:
- Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
- Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
- Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
- Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is an integral part of law school admission in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries and is administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). The purpose of the LSAT is to test the skills necessary for success in the first year of law school. Those skills include reading comprehension, reasoning, and writing, and the test results help admission decision makers and candidates alike gain valuable insight as to law school readiness. Studies have consistently shown the LSAT is the single best predictor of first-year law school performance, even better than undergraduate grade-point average.
The LSAT is administered in two parts.
- The first part of the test is a multiple-choice exam that includes reading comprehension, analytical reasoning, and logical reasoning questions.
- The second part of the test is a written essay, called LSAT Writing. LSAT Writing is separately administered online using secure proctoring software on the candidate’s own computer. Candidates can complete their LSAT Writing as early as eight (8) days prior to the multiple-choice exam.
The LSAT is the only test accepted by all ABA-accredited law schools, and it is the only test that helps candidates determine if law school is right for them
