Spoke with the head of admissions at Penn just three days ago and she said she isn't a number person...that if you score low on PAT, she doesn't really mind, because they'll be teaching you that stuff at Penn anyway.

good luck

Great scores!

So what you are saying djeffreyt is that they will not be teaching science!?! so you need to do well on that, but they will be teaching perceptual ability, which in reality is an innate trait...

Solid Work Mo Magic. I take mine on Monday :scared: & would be happy to get scores like that. On the QR did you run into any problems using sin x = sin(180-x) or sin^2 theta = 2 sin theta cos theta, or any prob like that? What where your topics on RC? Parasym/ Sym NS? Finance? Was there much on Digestion/ Digestion Enzymes in the SI, Stomach, etc.? Any IR/NMR Questions? Any Titration/ Buffer System Questions? Thanks for the input... :)

hey everyone,

My passages were aging, calcium, and antibiotics. I thought they were easy to read but i think thats what made me do that much worse. I got cocky reading the passages so i took my time and ran out of time.

My math was easy but i dont know wat i did wrong. I only had one trig question, and alot of word problems and ratio problems so know those.

Biology was so so easy and i really didnt go too overboard studying it either. I only studied wat i didnt know. I had about 5 questions about enzymes and their properites and funtions, 4 about evolution, 5 genetics, no ecology or plant stuff, and the rest were systems.

Chem was actually difficult i thought. I took me alot longer than usual. I am so used to calculating the answer but they wanted us to set up the answers and they never put anything in the order that i do when i calulate stuff.

Ochem was so so easy and i seriously never got lower than 27 on practice stuff and i felt i nailed it on the test but o well.

PAT- first off, i dont know why but in my mind i was thinking that reading is gonna start after science so i had the paper set up for that. When PAT started i took me by surprise because i didnt have anything set up for it.
I was behind 3 minutes because i had to set up everything for it (cube counting), and then i started freaking out because i couldnt find the answer to the first question.
Cube counting had one very odd series of questions but its ok.

Good luck all
