U-Prep Alumnus Soars

Chris HuebnerUniversity Preparatory School wishes to extend congratulations to Chris Huebner, U-Prep Class of 2016. Chris is in his junior year at UC Berkeley, with aspirations of attending medical school. Chris recently took the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) in order to begin the process of reaching those aspirations. To say that Chris did well on the exam would be an understatement! Chris scored a 523, which placed him the 100th percentile. To put this figure in perspective, the average score for the 2017 incoming Harvard Medical School class was 518! We are so proud of Chris and pleased for his parents. Congratulations, Chris!
