Our Students Are Statistically More Likely to Do Well on the MCAT

Every student’s starting point is different, but we all cross the same finish line.. So the question is, how well do you want to do?

Over 40% of our students increased their official MCAT score by 15 points or more, and 20% of Blueprint MCAT students scored 517 or higher on the official MCAT compared to just 6% of all MCAT test takers.

[That makes Blueprint MCAT students 3x more likely to score in the 95th percentile or above.]

The MCAT Is Your Chance to Show Off

Getting a 515+ score puts you in the top 10% of MCAT test takers. That kind of score is what can set you apart from the thousands of applicants admissions officers go through every cycle. As a future doctor, you’re already one of the best of the best; a high MCAT score will turn you from a good student to a competitive applicant. Don’t start your prep dreading the test - look at it as your chance to make a good impression, show that you belong at the school of your dreams, and enjoy your time studying with a course that’s proven to work.

13 points can make all the difference.

Choosing the right MCAT preparation is one of the most important decisions you’ll make on your journey to med school. A good MCAT score is one of the strongest predictors for admittance into med school, and prepping for the MCAT can be one of the most stressful times for students. We wanted to change that and give more students, like you, a chance at medical school.

Blueprint MCAT students raised their official MCAT score by 13 points on average. Not on a practice test. Not an average of all their exams. Their official MCAT scores increased by that much.

But that’s not all.

  • 69% saw an increase of 10 or more points
  • 41% increased by 15 or more points
  • 15% increased by 20 or more.


It could mean the difference between a “Yes” and “No.”

We’ve all heard that when you’re taking the MCAT you’re “competing against your peers”. While there’s some merit to that, what you’re really doing is competing for a high score, and 13 points can make or break an application.

The average MCAT score of medical school applicants in 2020 was a 506. However, the average MCAT score of students that were accepted was a 511. This 5-point difference represents a jump from the 67th percentile all the way up to the 82nd.

Imagine what you could do with 13 points instead of just 5.

Are you looking at competitive schools, making up for a weaker GPA, or just happy to get accepted? - 13 points can make that happen.

Have you been out of school for a while and need some guidance on how to structure your prep? Our program works for non-trads and traditional undergrads alike.

Regardless of your reasons, a strong MCAT score will take you further than previously expected, and Blueprint MCAT is the best bet for nailing the exam.

Blueprint students do better. Period. Here are the numbers:

What makes your course so effective?

In April 2020, we launched our brand new MCAT Online course and completely revolutionized MCAT prep. Starting from the core principles of Next Step’s representative test content, we built our course from the ground up with the intention of making the next big thing in test prep. Forward thinking and tech driven, our course isn’t a stale, three-hour recorded lecture repurposed for online learning.

Our course takes MCAT prep and breaks it down into digestible pieces that facilitate learning in a fast, efficient way. The bulk of our course is designed around small learning modules that include videos, quizzes, and readings, all structured around a smart Study Planner Tool that tells you what you should be studying, and when. We spent years developing the technology and content behind our course, and are beyond proud of how it turned out. We could go on about how great it is, but the results speak for themselves.

The study results are from official MCAT scores?

You bet they are. We have a reputation for having the most representative and realistic practice tests around. However, practice scores won’t get you into med school. We set out to prove that our course is the best way for students to increase their chances of getting into medical school, and the only way to do that was to see how well we prepared you for the real thing.

That’s why our score increase study only looked at how much students improved from their diagnostic exam to their official MCAT scores. That way you’ll have an idea of what to expect when you’re thinking about starting your prep journey. Our students reach out to us constantly and tell us how well they did on test day, and each success story makes us proud to be the best in the business.

Why isn’t there a Live Online MCAT course study?

Great question! Our MCAT Online course launched in April 2020 and we’ve been working tirelessly ever since to make sure it’s the best course available to students. We’ve also been collecting data on our students to make sure we’re practicing what we preach, and have the numbers to back it up.

Our MCAT Live Online course just started in January 2021, so it’s still too early in the process to begin collecting official MCAT scores from our students. That being said, our Live course builds off the same online resources used in this study—we’re pretty confident that our Live students will not only meet but even surpass the 13 point increase seen here. Check back in a little while to see all the awesome things our students accomplish with a Live class!

Show don’t tell - where’s the data?
