“The harder you work in MERP, the easier medical school will be for you. You’ll get out of it what you put into it. I recommend it to anyone.”

"Honestly, I don’t think I could’ve had the success that I’ve had without MERP. It’s a great way to build up your foundation so when you get into medical school it’s not the fire-hose effect with all the information. At the time, I didn’t really know what to expect, but I thought, OK, if it doesn’t work out, then I’m just back where I started. And now here I am with an MD, in residency, doing my chosen specialty."

"In the first few semesters at AUC, there was a significant amount of material that I recognized from MERP. Seeing the material for the second time, I could build on it faster and understand it better. I think that’s one of the great benefits of MERP."
