Kaplan Medical About Kaplan's course! HELP!

I'm interested in taking kaplan's center prep course and live lectures, the deluxe package. I'm wondering if I can take first 4 months studying at the center prep and then the 7-week live lectures (it doesn't matter if during that 7 weeks I don't have acces to the videos, Qbank.. etc.), or you must take the 7-week live lectures while your centerprep time is running? I need somebody who knows about this courses or has been taking the course or wish to do it!

I'll appreciate your help with this! Thank you!

I'm actually taking that same program and the answer is no. You take the 4-months Center Prep at the SAME TIME as the 7-week Live Lectures. That is, on your first day, you start receiving Live Lectures and Center Prep, and after 7 weeks you only have Center Prep.

Now, there's two things you must understand about the Deluxe Program:
  1. You can't change the Live Lectures date since they only do those certain times of the year.
  2. You can't change your Center Prep date since this enters in conflict with your student Visa.

What you CAN do is take your Live Lectures at a certain center and then take your Center Prep at another center.

Believe me. I've spent hours talking on the phone with Kaplan representatives. If you still have any doubts, you are welcome to call them.

PS: You should totally do your Live Lectures in Chicago, July 2nd. That's where I'm going.

Thanks for replying! I've sent you a PM. It's good to know you're taking the same road I'm taking.
