    Taking 9/2 MCAT and not sure about AAMC scores...

    (reposting this from my post from reddit!) So I'm registered to take the 9/2 exam and I finished FL 2 yesterday with a 504 (128/125/125/125). I'm really bummed about the bio score and CARS is usually my lowest so that was kind of expected. I felt pretty drained around the end of CARS, B/BC. I'm...

    Strategies to approach MCAT biologiy/biochem passages?

    I've been working on some practice questions from AAMC question packs and sample test. I found it pretty difficult to organize the actual information on the passage. Having them clearly organized in your head (or on scratch paper) would make it easier to answer the questions. Specially the...

    carbonic anhydrase inhibition

    Considering the bicarbonate buffering system in the blood, if the enzyme carbonic anhydrase's activity is inhibited, wouldn't this lead to an increased concentration of CO2 AND H2O at the tissue level? I'm reviewing the AAMC Sample Exam and I selected that CO2 concentrations would increase...

    New MCAT score

    Hi, I just got my MCAT score today. I got a 517 (130,127,130,130). I had my goals a little higher than this as I am naturally a good test taker and wanted to compensate for a subpar gpa (3.68 from an Ivy). Where does this score put me on the old MCAT? Some online charts show this as a 37 or 38...
