The morning of Saturday April 21, we had our monthly clinic trip to serve the community of Chapultepec in Ensenada, Mexico. We had a total of 14 volunteers and had 3 providers, 1 pharmacists, and 12 dentists also volunteer with us. We had a total of 5 cars that left the Stein parking lot at 6:45 am and 1 early car that left at 5:30 to organize and set up the clinic before everyone arrived. We arrived at the clinic at around 9:00 am. With the 3 providers, we were able to see 20 patients in total before leaving at 2:25 pm. We all ate at the usual taco shop until 3:30 pm and the left for the border. At the border, the wait took about 15 minutes for Sentri, 30 mins for Ready, and an hour for All-traffic lane, and we all arrived at campus around 6:30, 7:15, and 8:30 pm.

- Best Prep at the Best Price: First no one could touch our content, and now no one can touch our price. We have dropped the price of our best in class Self-Paced program so that you can prep with the best company in the business and still keep some cash in your pocket for important things like “Finesse” downloads, Black Panther Tickets, and, I guess food or something :).
- MCAT TUFF (Try Us For Free): Sometimes the best things in life are free (at least temporarily). Now you can enroll in our MCAT 30-day free trial and give our awesome online tools a free test-drive so that you can see first-hand that there is no one that arms you with better tools, more relevant curriculum, or more engaging teachers than The Princeton Review. Try us now so you know where you want to prep this year.
- Get Points or Get Paid: For a limited time, we are offering the BEST MCAT guarantee ever. It’s simple too. If you prep with us, do your work, and your scores don’t go up – we will refund you twice what you paid! Think about it for a second…prep with The Princeton Review and one of two things will happen: A) Your scores go up. Awesome. You’re Welcome. B) Your scores don’t go up, and we essentially pay you because we’ll refund you twice what you paid. No joke.
