I (Laureano Andrade Vicenty) started this MCAT prep company with a goal, and that is to drastically increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine (URMs). To have URMs teaching URMs, to be home grown, to invest money into our own businesses and communities as opposed to handing money to folks who could care less about our communities, and worse yet, not prepare you adequately for the MCAT. While I cannot help everyone who seeks it, I can now offer full scholarships to 27 URMs in medicine and their allies. This has increased from 25 from last year; proof of concept. Program participants will receive a course equivalent to our "on demand course" + two group 10 hour sessions with an MCAT instructor. Course access will last until the end of the 2019 cycle. Participants will also receive a personal physician mentor to review their primary medical school (AMCAS) application. Participants will also receive one online mock interview.

The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) definition of underrepresented in medicine (URM) means those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.

This includes but is not limited to Blacks, Latinos, and Native Americans (that is, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians). Those who have shown a commitment to helping the medically under-served are also invited to apply.

There are also a few more criteria that you have to meet to be considered for this scholarship:

1. Have completed the premedical pre-reqs.
2. Have rather open availability (I.E. no full-time job or full-time student [this program requires you to study 8 hours a day]).
3. Be a URM or an ally of the medically under-served.
4. Be ready to work!
5. Like The MCAT Disciples on Facebook (facebook.com/mcatdisciples)
6. Subscribe to The MCAT Disciples on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC401C2oS3vucCEKcuEXzxcg)
7. Follow The MCAT Disciples on Instagram (instagram.com/themcatdisciples)
8. Leave a review about our course on Yelp/Reddit/elsewhere upon completion of the program.
9. Schedule an MCAT exam date during the 2019 MCAT testing cycle (before September 19th, 2019)
10. Be willing to use your social media accounts to help promote our courses upon request for up to a year.
11. Have completed at-least 20 hours of community service in an under-served community or medical minority non-profit organization with a reference. Examples qualifying service in a non-profit minority organizations includes, but are not limited to E-board members of MiMentor, Minority Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS), Latino Medical Student Association + (LMSA+), or Mentoring in Medicine (MIM).
12. Be willing to film testimonials and associated media items upon request.
