    Feralis vs. Bootcamp for bio???

    My test is on August 3rd and so far I have been studying bio using the pre made bootcamp anki decks. However, I've heard so many good things about the Feralis deck that it has made me consider using those instead. I'm a bio major so I feel like I have a good chance at scoring highly on that...

    Feralis Biology Notes?

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone had an older copy of Feralis's biology notes? The ones currently on DAT Bootcamp are only halfway filled out. I'm taking my DAT over spring break, so I can't wait for them to update the 2018 version!

    Boston University Calc Pre-req

    BU has a calc pre-req. I want to apply there but I have not taken calc and will not take calc because it is not required by my major. Does anyone know of anyone who has been excepted into their program without taking calc?

    Average dat scores this cycle

    Based of the forums it seems to be that the dat scores of applicants of this higher are much higher than years past. Is there any truth to this or anyway to find out the average dat score for this cycle?

    Reading Comprehension Strategies Needed

    I took my first 3 reading comp tests beginning 2 days ago and scored terribly: 16, 15, 15. I don't understand why I am doing so poorly. I'm pretty sure I just don't have a good strategy. I read and write a lot. I am a liberal arts major and my major requires an excessive amount of reading and...

    Pay supplementals before or after DAT?

    Another important question: Should I wait until after I take the DAT to send in supplemental apps so that way I can assess if my scores are strong enough to secure admission somewhere.
