MCAT Prep course survey

In previous years, CSU has offered an MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) prep course taught by a number of different instructors who are experts in the content areas covered on the MCAT. Health Professions Advising would like your feedback to help us determine if we should: (1) continue offering the same course in the future, (2) stop offering an MCAT prep course, or (3) offer an MCAT prep course from an outside provider at a discounted rate (for example, Kaplan or Princeton Review). To help us make this decision, please answer the following questions:

Question Title

* 1. CSU’s MCAT prep course covers only MCAT content; that means you would not learn any test-taking strategy. A course taught by an outside provider would cover both content and strategy. On a scale from 1-5, how important is it to you that an MCAT prep course include test-taking strategy? (1 = not important, 5 =very important)

Question Title

* 2. 2. What could you afford to pay for an MCAT prep course and at what amount would you need assistance? CSU’s MCAT prep course was $750 last year. A course taught by an outside provider would be discounted from the retail price of the course (up to 50%) but still cost more than $750.

Question Title

* 3. 3. CSU’s prep course has been taught in person by instructors who live in Northern Colorado. Some outside providers offer a live online format. In the live online format, you would still be required to attend the virtual classroom at specified dates/times, and would still have the ability to ask questions, but would have flexibility in where you chose to be during the virtual class sessions. Would you prefer in-person or live online instruction?

Question Title

* 4. Is there anything else you'd like to add?
