    free radical alkyl + chloride steps.

    Verbal:
    "american abstract painters, jackson pollock, not wanting labels"
    "bt toxin, refuge/high dose, insects developing resistance to pesticide"
    "pilgrim antiques aren't as obvious as you think"
    "Ichyscsomething...some type of dinosaur that has adapted to marine life"
    "Passage about Myth, psychoanalysis,"
    "Education should provide values...morals, according to Rosseau, Locke and Mary Shelley"

    cystic fibrosis kidney
    fruit fly with 10 billion eye colors

    looks like DK. 5 PS and 4 g.chem. the sad thing is that I sorta guessed on the rusty nail passage. so that means one of the PS was experimental and I wasted my time on it.

    check the thread form DK. I see rosseau was added.

    you think the nail was experimental? i misread and didnt figure out why the middle was more pink...i know that it was creating hydroxides for some reason, but not sure why it was limited to just the middle

    CS right here, yeah that's on the money, although I really don't remember the heart transplant/cardiac output, maybe the pages got stuck together or something.

    Also I had "talent mindset vs Tenth fleet" passage in the verbal

    Same as CM, except for human buoy testing and humus soil from phys and transplanted heart and insect cell differentiation from bio.

    On DM in BS, there was a passage about G418/neo selection as well (pretty short though).

    I had CS. It was slightly different. I don't recognize a couple of the PS passages you are referring to as well as maybe 1 different VR passage and 1 or 2 BS passages different.

    How in the world did you remember all that? I must have a horrible memory, because I can probably only think of about 2 passages each in PS, BS, or VR that I remember. Maybe I'm blocking it out.

    I had CH, pretty much the same, but no transplanted heart, or rusty nail redox. Everything else the same. TPR sent me some kind of form letter stating that this test was pretty much the same as 6r....Doooooooooon't think so. TPR had shirts made for us that said " The MCAT is my BITCH".....talking about bad KARMA......that test bent me over its lap and spanked my ass silly. Hey that sounds like fun! Kidding, kind-of. Is anyone confident with after this test?

    You should have seen me walking in. I had this swagger that belittled other prospective examinees. My thoughts went like this: "Well, you know you are very good at PS and math, just hope we get something reasonable . . . but regardless you will do well on PS. For the verbal, since your score fluctuates here, just read slowly and carefully. Just find the best answer to the bio questions. A 35 is very reachable. you 'll do great."

    Got Form DK:

    After PS: 12/13 dropped down to probably 8.
    After VR: a possible 11 dropped to probably 8
    After BS: a possible 11 dropped to 9 or 10.

    Overall expecting 25-26. No confidence men. The difficulty belies the AAMC exams online. WIll avenge myself August if my scores actually turn as predicted. I am praying for 30 with 10's across the board now.

    PS: An MD/PhD student a Georgetown University just emailed me and told me that the undergrads he met who took the April test said it was, in his words, "A TORTURE" [with emphasis]. So I know I am not the only stupid person.

    CM had many similarties

    PS: absorbance, temperture, nail redox crap, sound testing, ocean bouy, truck crate. These are identical passages for sure

    VR: BT TOXIN, ice dinosaur thing, myth, music trance crap. Not 100% on the education one but i would say it was on CM

    BS: Crabs and sea biscuts, fruit flies eye colors, xyz orgo, dis herniage, nomenclature of n3,2-nitro ketone

    Anyone have any idea which ones could be experimental? Do we ever find out which ones are after we recieve our grade?
