Do you need a great MCAT score?
But you don’t know how to get it...

And you can’t afford $2,000 for MCAT Prep?




Every day, I used to receive emails from students telling me how bad they wanted to be a doctor, but they felt hopeless because the MCAT seemed insurmountable. It was heart-breaking!

The emails fell into one of three categories:

"I'm doomed. I can't afford an expensive MCAT prep class and everyone knows you can't score high on the MCAT without one. 

I'm crying, please help!"

“I’m doomed. I thought I needed an expensive MCAT prep class, so I paid $2,000 and now I’m drowning in content, behind schedule and not improving. 

I’m overwhelmed, please help!”

"I'm doomed. I paid $2,000 for an MCAT class, did everything they told me to do and spent months studying under some instructor who got a perfect score only to feel burnt out, anxious and more confused than when I started. I bombed the test and now I’m questioning everything.

 I’ve lost hope, please help!”

Which one of these are you?

Although I am now an anesthesiologist and Stanford Med School Alumnus, when I was a premed, I was in the first category. I didn’t have any doctors in my family and my parents couldn’t help me financially. Money was so tight, I had to live in a triple-occupancy dorm (ugggggh).

There was no way I could afford to pay $2500 to some big prep company… but I did anyway because everyone told me I had to! To my horror, I quickly realized I had maxed out 2 credit cards only to receive a stack of dense books, an endless library of lectures that read the cliff-notes to me and a so-called “MCAT Instructor” who was really a glorified MCAT baby-sitter responsible for reminding me just how little I knew and how far behind their “customized schedule” I was. Some of you reading this know exactly what I’m talking about.

The expensive class had all this stuff, but it didn’t teach me what I really needed to learn:


I stopped going to the class and focused on understanding the key barriers to MCAT success and I formulated a plan for studying for the MCAT on my own.

I scored in the 95th percentile and got into Stanford Medical School.

My plan had worked, and I realized that with some tweaking, it could work for other students. 

I’ve spent the past 10 years optimizing my MCAT strategies working with various well-known programs, including the California Alliance for Minority Participation and Stanford Med school’s Health Careers Opportunity Programs.  

Thousands of students later, I’m happy to report that I have developed the ultimate independent MCAT studying system that is the missing link in MCAT preparation. 

Now, I’m going to save you a ton of money and stress by teaching you step-by-step, EXACTLY how to maximize your MCAT score!

  • A simple system for integrating your MCAT prep into your regular coursework so that you can build your fund of knowledge throughout college which makes the months leading up to your MCAT easier because you will already have MCAT notes, you will understand key MCAT topics and won’t be overwhelmed with content, allowing you to focus instead on questions and testing!

  • How to create a practical and truly personalized MCAT study schedule that allows you to practice effective spaced repetition, balance your obligations and MCAT prep, and have plenty of free time to recharge, which means you avoid burnout and instead are more motivated, focused and effective! Course includes real schedule examples and templates (even for non-traditional students, students who work, or even students with children). 

  • My one of a kind Compounded Question Interrogation System (CQIS) that gives you a proven, step-by-step method of question-based learning that is the fastest and surest way to improve your reading, test-taking and critical thinking skills which means you will improve rapidly, especially on the CARS section!

  • A complete breakdown of MCAT resources so that you know which MCAT resources to use, and which you absolutely must avoid which means you will save money, won’t need to search for what you need and can streamline your prep by focusing on the resources that are sure to boost your score the most!
  • My innovative Passage Attacking System (PAS) that shows you how to systematically break down passages and accurately answer questions. This is a game-changer that will show you how to read faster, improve your comprehension, avoid being confused by the MCAT’s tricky questions and avoid running out of time! In fact, many of my students finish sections with more than 10 minutes to spare.


Here's how it works:

No matter where you are today, my MCAT program provides you with everything you need to dominate the MCAT! No one-off tips, tricks or empty magical thinking. I cover every aspect of MCAT studying and everything I teach is research-based, but goes beyond the science to actually provide you practical steps for implementing and executing to get you unparalleled results!

Mental Reprogramming

Preparing for the MCAT is a grind and if you don’t have the right mindset and you aren’t mentally fortified, then you are going to get stressed out, feel defeated and ultimately burnout. A stressed brain is a struggling brain, conversely a positive brain is a powerful brain! In my program I spend a significant amount of time instilling positive perspectives into my students so they can stay productive. I also teach them specific strategies for maximizing mental vitality so that they can stay sharp, focused and energized all the way through test day. You will develop an abundance of self-confidence that will ward off procrastination, raise your MCAT expectations and maximize your MCAT score. I’m going to reprogram your brain for high performance!


Personalized MCAT Study Schedule System

Most MCAT prep classes advertise a “Customized Schedule to Cover ALL the Material” (no matter how much time you have left). It’s basically just a spreadsheet where you plug in how much time you plan to study and every possible MCAT topic gets assigned a time slot. This makes no sense, it is like trying to cram an entire 16-week course in one day instead of focusing on the highest yield material. How does it make sense if you are studying for 1 month to try to cover the same amount of material as someone who is studying for 9 months? It doesn’t, you end up rushing through trying to “see everything” only to learn nothing! Instead, I teach my students my proven step-by-step method for creating a schedule that is focused on maximizing learning and retention and takes into account their real-life obligations. Instead of trying to see everything, we focus on being consistent and understanding everything we see. In addition, I provide schedule templates for all sorts of student lifestyles (full-time student, working student, parent and student and more). I teach you how to make the most efficient and effective use of your time!

Proven MCAT Study System

The MCAT is a cumulative test for your 4+ years of premed coursework. There is a lot of information for you to know and in case that wasn’t enough, the MCAT features convoluted passages and gives you very little time to work through it all on test day. To conquer this beast you need build 2 things: 1) A Functional Fund of Knowledge - My CCL method maximizes active, engaged and contextual learning which facilitates faster learning, longer-lasting learning, & happier learning! 2) Strong Critical Thinking Skills - Because the MCAT is a critical thinking test, your CARS score and overall MCAT score are directly tied to your critical thinking skills. My program features proven strategies for rapidly and systematically improving every aspect of your critical thinking, including critical reading, critical analysis and critical problem solving. That way, even when you don’t know the answer, you can get the right answer!  


Elite MCAT Community

You are who you roll with, so it's hard to change your life surrounded by the same people. During my ascension to the top of my college class, I had to go it alone because I couldn’t find people who shared my beliefs, work-ethic or obsession with greatness. My students are never alone because they are part of the greatest MCAT community on the planet. We are one hive of highly trained collaborators that hold each other accountable, uplift one another and will not allow anyone in the group to settle for less than their best MCAT score! You can find study partners, share resources and insight and get support and encouragement when you need it.


Expert Coaching

No matter how good the training is (and my training is out of this world), you'll always have questions. Get 24/7 access to my informed students in our MCAT Group. Ask me anything and get personalized coaching from me during our monthly livestream Q&A virtual calls. I LOVE coaching students because it allows me to go deep and really get to the root of their MCAT issues and create massive transformation.


"If you want to truly be prepared to not only dominate your MCAT prep but rip the MCAT to shreds then this is the course for you! Thanks to Dr. Pinesett, I am confident in my ability to study and do extremely well on the MCAT. I was worried that I did not have the smarts nor the study skills to perform well but I know that if I execute my plan of attack the MCAT doesn't stand a chance. As soon as I take my MCAT and get my score back I will update my review to show that Dr. Pinesett truly prepared me to succeed. Thank you Dr. Pinesett for the confidence, scheduling guidelines, and change of mindset that I needed to put my best foot forward and only have to take the MCAT once!"

Elizabeth Dair-Delgadillo


"Just as Dr. Pinesett says, this course is very thorough and you will come out of it feeling like you will obliterate the MCAT. He even goes over some tactics which you can also apply to your classes. If you think his YouTube channel is good, just imagine how good his courses are! This course has far exceeded my expectations and was definitely well worth it!"

Kofi A.

Awesome Course!

"I loved this course! It's worth it's weight in gold. I didn't need another content heavy companion to lead me astray. What I needed was guidance and advice and an entity that could provide me with some structure and constructive criticism so that I can become my best self on my own. This course did all of that and so much more. I would get this course 100 times over"

Zach Havlovick


“The course not only shows you exactly what you need to succeed academically, but it also gives you the tools to live the way you want to live. That's powerful.”

Evans Okonkwo

"It is really helpful, especially if you are weak in test taking skills. It really opened my eye on how to study for MCAT. By doing more Question based . thank you Dr. Pinesett"

Luwam Eyob

One of the best

"Dr. Pinesett makes it clear, MCAT dominance does not come from the simple application of techniques but understanding the reasons behind applying them in the first place. If you have the will but see no way; let Dr. Pinsett show you the way. In other words, take the course...you'll know what I mean! "

Shiv Singh

Phenomenal Not Forgotten-Eric Thomas.

"Dr. Pinesett's course was the best purchase I could have made to help me prepare for the MCAT. He covers everything from What to expect on the MCAT to How to create a Study Schedule that won't leave you burnt out to How to do question-based learning. Dr. Pinesett motivates me to study better than anyone else and he is so awesome!!!! Plus his humor makes the course fun!!"

Amaris Tapia

MCAT Let's Do This!!!!

"This is greatest investment you can make on yourself. Before purchasing this course, every time I sat down to study I always wondered if I was getting the most out of my time. Dr. Pinesett provides you with an attack strategy, to achieve maximum efficiency. The advice is this course is invaluable. "

Luis Hernandez

Worth every penny!

"Dr. Pinesett has done it again! This course is jam-packed with a wealth of knowledge on how to successfully get organized and become fully prepared to conquer the MCAT. After taking this course, I feel much more confident in my ability to do well, and have already made my killer MCAT prep schedule. Definitely worth every penny!"

"After finishing this course, I've gained knowledge that helped me set up a functional schedule that's going to set me up for success. I've also gained knowledge on how to become more efficient in prepping for the MCAT. I can't say enough how much I appreciate Dr. Pinesett for setting up this course. I would highly recommend this course to any pre-med who needs some guidance and confidence in preparing for the beast that is the MCAT. Goodluck."

Eiran Saucedo - Rodarte

On the road to DOMINATE the MCAT (without an expensive prep class)

"I was very impressed by this course. It is extremely high yield considering it doesn't cover much in the way of actual MCAT content. It is a holistic strategy guide on how the MCAT should be approached and the tools that you can use to prepare and dominate the MCAT. I have already started to implement some of the strategies discussed in the course and I am noticing a real difference in terms of the quality and quantity of my study time. I am also more energized and organized in my personal life. While I got a ton out of this course I truly believe that the people who stand to gain the most from this are undergraduates who h ave the MCAT on the distant horizon. You will pick up skills that will make studying for the MCAT much more manageable and you will probably do better in your courses to boot! That being said the secret ingredient is still time and work and most importantly you! I also recognize that there was probably a time in my life where this course would have had little to no effect because of my maturity level and my ability to actually implement whats in this thing. If you are going to do what is necessary and take things into your own hands then this is the course for you. If you want to sit back and learn through osmosis and magically get a better score then this isn't for you and that course doesn't exist. Good luck and I wish you the best."

"This course by Dr. Pinesett is absolutely amazing. THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THESE COURSES. I wish I had taken this course years ago. In this specific course, he covers a wide range things. For example, how to approach MCAT studying with a positive attitude, how to study for each section, what materials to utilize, HOW TO PUT A SCHEDULE TOGETHER (OMG), and.....in my opinion: a secret technique in how to successfully DOMINATE the MCAT. He doesn't call it a secret technique, but in my experience struggling with my MCAT studies, I feel he unlocked a secret way of acing each section. Dr. Pinesett did an amazing job in this course. EVERYONE who is struggling with their MCAT studies needs to use his course. I feel he put YEARS of experience into this easy to learn and understand course. STOP procrastinating and get your hands on this course!!!!"

Iman Farraj


"Dr. Pinesett approach is refreshing and different. The information he provides in this course has been proven by other experts to work. I love his upbeat spirit in the videos and all he's great ideas to improve my MCAT approach. I wish I would have found him before I paid other MCAT prep."

Sheresa Demings

New Approach

"Amazing course. It's crazy how pre med students are expected to learn so much information in a short period of time and dominate the MCAT, but no one actually shows you how to go about studying. This course filled in the knowledge gaps of how to actually learn effectively and be efficient with studying. The MCAT is a beast and requires strong content knowledge, but more importantly, strong critical thinking skills. The question is, how do you study in a way that improves content knowledge and the type of thinking skills that you need to excel on this test and throughout the rest of your medical journey? Dr. P reveals how to do this in his course and it shaped how I studied for the MCAT as well as how I approach studying and learning in other aspects of my life. Even if you don't necessarily follow every single methodology in this course, the overarching idea is extremely beneficial. If I could add anything to this course, I would actually walk through a couple practice passages and show students how to interrogate specific passages, especially in the CARS section since there is no background information to fall back on. The MCAT is not only a chance to show medical schools what you got, but a chance to refine your studying and master learning so that you can prove to yourself that you are ready to tackle medical school. This course served as the avenue to doing just that."

Brandon Eden (Accepted to top med school)

The Title of the Course Says It All

"I want to start by saying that I have been studying for the MCAT for quite some time. My foundation was poor, so going in to get a desirable score I knew I was going to be studying harder and longer than the average student. Because of this, I had researched a massive amount about the MCAT - all over the internet (youtube, forums blah etc). This is because the success to study better and do well on the MCAT, like in this course, is never shared or explained by anyone except Dr. Pinesett - at least not explained thoroughly, effectively, and definitely not with excellence. You will not, I repeat NOT find redundancy, replication, information nor extension on Dr. Pinesett's methodologies/material anywhere other than this course. I hesitated to spend money on this course, because I felt that I had done my research on MCAT success, and that I knew a novel study method that medical students find success in (I won't give it away because you will have to buy the course to find out what it is, it's only fair). The problem is, I didn't know how to execute it, because to date, no one except Dr. P has provided a step by step methodology to this method. This makes the course priceless. The point is, I tried to execute it, but with no direction and without a plan or understanding I would barely improve. I executed it poorly and found myself incredibly frustrated and wasting time. Before this course, I followed the advice of "top scorers" on forums. I simply had no where else to go, and it would seem logical to take direction from a top scorer. I did everything they said, and my scores didn't improve. It just wasn't working. This is why I ended up buying this course and is the best investment and fairly should be a lot more money (thank you Dr.). After I took this course, which even just watching it, improved my confidence 10 fold. My own mom made a comment that I was more relaxed, had less anxiety, and over all happier after this course, and more importantly, following the steps from this course. This is because Dr. P gives phenomenal, unique methodologies that are not repeated anywhere else. I took a practice exam after studying from Dr. P's methods, and I got the highest score I had ever written to date on the 4th next step exam. Typically, the exams get harder as you take more (say next step #1 is easier than next step 2) but my scored jumped on the 4th exam regard less of what material was tested. I felt clearer, and more confident in approaching questions and not so lost. I felt an improvement in critical thinking - things were clearer and less convoluted. Though my scores still need improvement, I will say that I ever tried many methods from other people, and I never saw my score improve (it got lower actually). I would consistently score low, after this course, I increased roughly by 6 points. But with Dr. P's I saw almost instant improvement in both day to day passages, and improvement on next step exams. If you are worried about money for this course, don't be it is one of the best investments you will ever make."

Sophia Hegedus

The Best Investment - Anyone Can Learn Something From This Course No matter What Stage

"This is my second round studying for this beast of an exam, and I am now scoring 10 points higher than last round, I thank Dr. Pinesett's courses for this. He indeed did a fantastic job at compiling every aspect that is essential for mission accomplishment. I learned how to structure my study session and maximize my practice passages ( you will understand this comment when you take this course.. it's MAGICAL!!) And "elaborative interrogation"; this sounds like a scene from a movie. Use this method to your advantage and rewrite the scene of your film instead of it taking over you! NOExcusesJustDOMINATE!"

Evans Okonkwo

This course TRANSFORMED my MCAT scores!

"Not only did this class teach me to get the most out of my studying, It also provided me with invaluable advice about other key aspects outside of studying that would maximize my score. My test Isn't for a few months but I feel very confident with this course as a tool."

Grant Akalonu
