Re: When to submit application

Definitely submit now, if only to have your primary application verified. If there are any concerns about schools not waiting to see your new MCAT score, submit only to one school, so that you're verified ASAP. Whatever approach you choose, do not wait to have your primary application verified. As f...

Re: AMCAS FL 2 #23

AMCAS asks science questions now? That is hardcore ;) (Since this relates to what is giving you trouble in this question, I do want to emphasize that reading every single character in a figure, graph or passage can be very helpful for the MCAT. As you make a habit of paying attention to details, the...

Re: Official Prep Chemistry Question Pack

From a few threads down: 12. Assuming you are fine with the grams to mol conversion (simply g/molar mass). Step 1: Eyeball proportions. About the same moles of each. Cool, one estimate will suffice. Step 2: Eyeball quantities. 262 is about 250. 6.57 is about 650*10^-2. Step 3: Do magic. 250 * 2.5 = ...

Re: Trying to Stay on Schedule

I do not believe so, but for what it is worth, a reset retains modules and assignments that are already completed.

Re: Pysch Section Bank Part 1

1. Simply repeating what you hear, without trying to process or filter in any way. 2. You are only expected to know about the contralaterality of most sensory and motor functions, the structure of the visual and auditory pathways and the localization of language areas to the left hemisphere. Other t...

Re: AAMC FL1 B/B Q31

They do not alter the rate of a reaction by altering the primary structure of the substrate, rather the reaction is that cleavage and subsequent change in primary structure (into two fragments). This is a pretty common type of answer choice: It correctly describes a function of an enzyme, but it doe...

Re: Biology Vol 2 Q pack Part 1

1. Only when adding subunits can an end be said to be 'growing' at all. So for the same reason that the answer is "at concentrations greater than 1 uM" rather than "At all concentrations". In order to be growing faster, one has to be growing at all. 2. Only the distance between the Z-lines really ch...

Re: CARS Vol 1 Question Pack Part 1

1. The passage states, through Apollinaire in paragraph 4, that he was "the second type" of artist, the cerebral structurer, but that he was able to convert himself into a more spontaneous artist. Thus his spontaneity can be said to be 'apparent' (implying it only appears to be so!) and definitely n...

Re: Topics for Sections

Everything that is covered in the main course is pretty high-yield. Things that are core to understanding anything and guaranteed to show up are particularly emphasized (some biochemistry, glycolysis, the AAs, etc.). Beyond that, the crux of the matter is this: Your actual MCAT won't represent the t...

Re: AAMC FL 4 CP 24

No information from outside the passage is required here. The answer key is simply stating that if both compounds are administered simultaneously, the NF-kB pathway won't be inhibited in every cell yet by the time camptothecin reaches them and starts acting. Thereby, the aptoposis-inhibiting NF-kB p...
