Like others who are preparing for the MCAT exam, you probably wonder how you can prepare for the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section, which doesn’t require you to study specific content. The Khan Academy MCAT Collection now includes new study and guidance materials for this section of the MCAT exam to help you get started. With the addition of these materials, the Khan Academy MCAT Collection is now complete! It covers all of the content tested on the MCAT exam, and includes 1,100 videos and 3,000 review questions to help you study.
Learn more about studying for the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section here.
Paying for Medical School Through Service
piggy_bank.jpg
One of the frequently asked questions we get from aspiring medical students is "How will I pay for medical school?" Nearly 80 percent of graduating students reported having outstanding educational loans at the end of medical school, according to the most recent AAMC Medical School Graduation Questionnaire. Some students who want to borrow less, or who want to have some or all of their loans forgiven, might want to consider providing medical service for a particular organization, employer, or program after medical school (or licensure). In return for their service, they receive the benefit of loan forgiveness or loan repayment. You might not be aware of some of these service commitments that provide loan forgiveness or repayment, but they can significantly offset the cost of a medical education.

The American Student Dental Association (ASDA) is holding its third annual National Predental Week on Feb. 21-27, 2016. We hope you will encourage predentals at your school to participate.

During this time, ASDA will promote resources and events for predentals, including two free webinars about scholarship and loan repayment and hot topics in dentistry. Predentals that join ASDA during that week will be eligible for prizes. The predental club that recruits the most predental members from Feb. 21-27 will earn a "virtual visit" from ASDA, which includes a personalized webinar with ASDA leaders, lunch provided by ASDA and raffle prizes for their members. Many ASDA chapters will hold their own events as well.

ASDA is the premier resource for students interested in a career in dentistry. There is an ASDA chapter at each of the 65 U.S. dental schools and more than 90 percent of all U.S. dental students are members. ASDA also supports a rapidly growing community of more than 2,300 predental student members.

In addition to resources like the "Getting into Dental School" handbook, DAT preparation resources, predental checklists and application timelines, ASDA offers leadership training and other tools to assist students during their journey to becoming a dentist.
