    Ok, so first of all, I have no gripe with SDN not wanting to get involved with any legal strong arming by the AAMC.

    My gripe is with AAMC saying we can't discuss questions. That's Bull$hit. They might have copyrighted a specific questions for a specific test on a specific day, but they sure has hell can't copyright that knowledge.

    They say "don't remember anything from the MCAT" What? Are they stoopid? Of course we all remember questions that we had to think extra hard about. Of course we're going to talk to our friends about those questions.

    For instance, in a previous thread somebody ask about ATP and muscles. Now, I don't know what the specific questions on the test was... But I do that muscle contraction is powered by ATP hydrolysis and this causes crossbridge cycling. If the AAMC has a problem with me presenting that knowledge, then they'd better have a talk with just about every physiology professor in the world.

    Is it a copyright violation to ask about a concept? Even if that concept was tested on copyrighted material, they can't possibly hope to copyright the concept.

    Ok. I'm done.

    I'm afraid that I previously copyrighted the phrase "I 100% Agree." Please desist in the memorization of things I say, type, or think.
