Members don't see this ad.
Two MCAT takers are grabbed in the middle of the test, separated, interrogated into confession to a "crime" that they didn't commit.

You are offered the same deal:

If you confess and the other person remains silent, you get a 40 and he gets a 20, and vice versa. If you both stay silent, you will each get a 35. If you both confess, you each get a 26.

What do you do...?
