Hey folks,

First of all thanks to all the members of SDN for their help in choosing the materials to study.

Qr - 17 (66%)
BIO - 29 (99.9%):cool:
GC - 30 (100%):D
OC - 30 (100%);)
TS - 30 (100%)
AA -25 (99.9%)

I am applying to Upenn, Harvard, UMDNJ, Temple and Columbia!!

Overall GPA-3.8 Sci. GPA 3.95. I have research Experience, extracurriculars, many awards and deans lists, and also Dentistry experience.

Applications are done, What do you guys think of my chances in getting in above schools. Any insight will be helpful. Thanks Again SDN.


As everyone asked for here is some what I think about the test and how was prepared for it.

Biology: Its my major. The stuff on the test was a lot of random questions, that either you know or u dont. There was only one question that I was not sure of for this sections but hit it with Educated guess and turned out to be nice. The day before exam, I went thru my whole text book at least 15 chapters only figures and all that stuff. While studying I was also taking notes of what stuff that I thought I didnt know, and thus I dont have to keep going over the whole book over and over again but rather that particular part of info. that I can look up.
I did destroyer only once and took notes, and tried to memorize new info.

G.chem- My fav section. Destroyer and Kaplan online course prepared me enough. Even in my practice test I was used to get may be 1 or 2 wrong at max. I would say if u know destroyer, chill.

O.chem- Received O.chem Achievement awards for this class. Since I forgot many of the stuff, I had to spent so much time in here. Then bought destroyer week before test, went over whole book in 4-5 days. Before test went over road maps. The actual exam was piece of cake!!

PAT- bought CDP took everysingle test in the last week. I had only five test package that I bought like in my sophomore year. IT was or not close to CDP..dont know but I was not much happy or sad with this score.

QR: Skipped tons of questions, and believe me u must do it. Or else U will end up in 13's. Coz many word probs and all that u neva have come across in life, even after teaching math for 1.5 years at my college as a Math tutor.

During break Wish that U dont get Piano or Frapped or whatever.

RC: My worst section. For the first ten minutes just answered 5 questions. and then was like oh damn need to pace up, so tried my best with all the energy. only this is the section that I was most worried about. BUt I still had to just choose whatever in last 4 questions. (lucky me only for last 4!!)

Kaplan is a great way to start continure studying, but at the end u must use Destroyer or some harder stuff to measure your potential.


:clap::soexcited: Feels crezy to be done with THAT DAT on Monday!!!

Hey Thnx everyone again, and also to Nz, we talked before.

There was no secret, all I did was read over and over again, made many notecards, and kept myself calm while taking the test while rushing throught it.

I dont know wht happened to my math, I was tutoring math for 1.5 years..stupid me.:confused:

Well but whatever..:rolleyes:

TS is not the Average of all sciences..that will be written when u will receiven your grade sheet. Its rather grading like out of 100 howmany u got rite? May be I had 99 right..so they just curved it to 100 TS.:rolleyes:


How do you get a 29 bio, 30 ochem and gchem, but you have a 30 TS? since TS isnt an average of all 3? doesnt a 30 TS mean you get 100% of the questions right?

no 99 is a 29TS, but i also think that 40/40 on bio is a 29....So i dont think its possible to get a 30 in bio, which i dont understand...But congrats those are some amazing scores! And have fun rejecting schools lol

don't agree, that's the best way to trick people into believing you.
A person dumb enough to make a fake post is simply not smart enough to pay that much attention to the details. He/She would go for 27+ on every single section just to piss everyone off (Come on now! You've seen those posts). The fact that OP hasn't done that makes me want to believe that these are genuine scores, and you can disagree all you want;).

I never said that this is absolutely100% fraudulence without a doubt. People always have a tendency to believe whatever people say. I simply suggested that there might be a possibility, relax.:p

Its BS..... Unless u know what u gonna get on the test! there's no way someone scoring that high on science! It hasn't been done yet! If true.... Then Harvard scouts will escort u from ur house and take u in on full scholarship and they'll give u an all nighter!!!
I believe it can be done by some genius. If a 12 year-old kid got admitted into UIC med school, and his sister attends college years earlier than normal students, anything is possible.

i sort of believe it, but we're all smart people on this forum and would know how to set up a believable post! But seriously, a breakdown would be fantastic


While setting up this post right after coming from test center, I was so much excited called my parents..gf..all the friends...that I was so much tired as well coz Could not sleep night before..I just went sleep.

Was also unsure..That I would receive a great response from everyone coz my PAT and RC and Math are comparatively low.

Thnx tho. LEt me know if in breakdown..like what u want me to put?
