Anyone ever taken a Genius 360 MCAT review course?

    There are fliers posted around the science department of my university advertising an MCAT review course that will be taught from January to April and is being administered by a company out of Atlanta called Genius 360. Their website (www.genius360.org) is a bit sparse on information, but I talked to the owner of the company over the phone, and from what I could sense during our conversation, he seems to be offering a solid review course. The "chief" pre-med advisor at my school also told me that he had heard good things from previous students who had taken the program when it was offered previously at my university.

    Does anyone have any input regarding the reputation of this company and their courses?

    Well, the thing is, their course costs the same as Kaplan's ($1900), so I'm wary of paying such a vast amount of money to take a course with hardly any reputation...

    well seeing as how kaplan is taught by students who have gotten 35+ on the MCAT. It would make not to much of a difference. Maybe if you could ask the company guy if the classes are taught by students or actual older person who has been doing this for a while. To me Kaplan students just reiterate what they have been trained although material given in Kaplan is great.

    Never heard of it!

    Proceed with caution!

    There website is not that informative of what they can do either.

    I would find someone that has taken the course and talk with them.
