Free MCAT 2015 Practice Test Announcement

Dear Pre-Med Students,

Altius Test Prep is offering a FREE PRACTICE MCAT EXAM. This will be 1/2 length and cover the MCAT 2015 material. This is a great opportunity to get a look at what the new test will be like and see questions on the new material for MCAT 2015. Altius Test Prep has created 10 FULL LENGTH PRACTICE TESTS that will match MCAT 2015 in content and question type. Altius exams were created with the help of over 40 Ph.D.’s using the same double-blind, peer reviewed, standardized development process used by the AAMC. Because they are standardized we believe our tests will be STATISTICALLY IDENTICAL to the real MCAT.

When: Saturday, January 24th from 9:00am-2:00pm Where: Physics & Astronomy Auditorium (PAA), Room A110 (Bring Laptop)

Sponsored by the Physics Club

One Night Count Youth Survey needs volunteers

Count Us In is our community’s count of homeless and unstably housed young people ages 12-25. In 2014, 779 homeless and unstably housed young people were counted at over 45 partner locations across King County. Count Us In provides supplemental data to King County’s One Night Count, a point-in-time count for homeless people all across the county. Though the One Night Count is one of the best-established in the nation, it isn’t set up to have detailed demographics. Often times, when volunteers are counting homeless people in parks, under bridges, or in doorways, it is difficult to determine sex, race, or age. As a result, the number of homeless youth counted in the One Night Count is underrepresented. Count Us In provides richer data and increased awareness around the homeless youth population. This volunteer will conduct the count at different branches of the Seattle Public Library.

You can help! We need volunteers comfortable talking to youth in transition and approaching strangers!Volunteers commit to one 2 to 4-hour shift on January 22nd, 2015. Volunteers are also required to complete a training component (one hour) covering how to conduct the survey.

This is a great opportunity for those to get involved who are not able to participate in the One Night Count.

There is a training to complete before January 22nd, the information about the training dates and times are listed in the link below.

Thank you and we look forward to you signing up!
