Any way it depends on your selection which Medical School you want to join. (image)

Hey people,

I took a look at the "retaking MCAT calculating" website, it's disappointed, it seemed that the most one would improve is by 2 or 3 max, is that right? I have a CGPA of 3.61 and 32S in MCAT

Guide to Nurse Job Interview

Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:47 am

by Amy Turner (Posted Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:47 am)This guide will help future nursing school graduates. There will be more to add but it's a start.-Contents-I. What to wearII. What to BringIII. Questions to Expect From Your InterviewerIV. Questions You Should Ask Your InterviewerV. What Employers/Interviewers Look ForVI. Final WordsI. WHAT TO WEARLooking professional is important and that is one part of the battle. Your interviewer will be looking at how you dress, how you present yourself, eye contact, attitude, and a firm handshake all within less than a minute. Wearing jeans to an interview is already a red flag to your employer no matter how nice your shirt and shoes are. For men: Keep in mind that facial hair needs to be maintained and clean. Beards are acceptable but needs to be maintained.Your scent will be taken into consideration: A good quality bath soap is all you need. Avoid strong scented such as ( but not limited to) perfume, cologne, after shave, lotions, and etc. Strong fragrances can trigger someone's allergies. The main point here is that you don't want to smell bad but you do not want to give a strong scent as well.Strongly Advised: Wear a watch. This is as important as knowing the date.II. WHAT TO BRINGMust haves:A pen/ pencilSmall Notepad or small notebook.A folderSeveral copies of your cover letterSeveral copies of your resume attached you your cover letterReferences/ Reference LettersNursing License/ Proof you have passed NCLEX (mainly for new graduates)CPR CardPertinent CertificationsA pen/ pencil and a small notepad/ small notebook will be needed to write down some important information your interviewer has told you. Also, write down some questions you may have for your interviewer prior to the interview. You will need a folder to place all of your papers.Several copies of your resume and cover letter will be needed because you be asked to provide more copies. Keep in mind that some hospitals/ nursing homes may have multiple staff members interviewing you to see well you communicate, especially through other departments. They will need to have your resume and cover letter on record.Reference/ Reference Letters will tell the interviewer what kind of worker/student you are/were.Your interviewer will need to see proof that you are a nurse or have at least passed the NCLEX.The reason for the CPR card should be obvious.Pertinent Certifications should relate to the floor/ department you will be working at. You will need to prove that you are qualified for that area of work.III. QUESTIONS TO EXPECT FROM YOUR INTERVIEWEROne of the most important parts of your interview is how you answer questions asked by your interviewer. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WILL NEED TO PRACTICE AT HOME PRIOR TO THE INTERVIEW. Keep in mind that staff from other floors/ departments may be in the room with you and your interviewer asking you questions to see how you communicate through different floors and departments. They will be testing your interpersonal skills as well. Don't forget, be prepared to be questioned on anything on your cover letter, resume, and reference letters. And of course, know your strengths and weaknesses. They know that you are not perfect.Here are some questions/scenarios to expect:A conflict you encountered and how you handled itA time when you were lateA time when you used good communicationHow you handle stressA time when you were in a leadership positionA time when you disagreed with a rule or policyA time you went above and beyond for a patient/customerAn incident of work[...]

MCAT Study Ideas

Traditional reading comprehension skills are important, but the verbal section is called "Verbal Reasoning" for a reason. It goes above and beyond traditional reading comp. topics like main idea, tone and inference. I'm going to assume that you're already reading challenging material on a daily basis. Beyond that you can start gradually familiarizing yourself with the types of questions asked on the MCAT and reviewing the content. You might want to slowly start working through the review books like our MCAT Verbal Reasoning and Writing Review. However, you do not want to start burning through prep material prematurely. You want to build the underlying skills so you have a great foundation when the time comes to turn your attention to test prep (3-6 months before your test date).

IMG need advice for job in healthcare

Sat Feb 11, 2017 12:33 pm

by docval (Posted Sat Feb 11, 2017 12:33 pm)
Hello all

I will be moving to the US from France soon to join my husband and might want to apply for a job in healthcare (not as a physician) but for example as a medical assistant or go back to school to learn medical coding.
I have taken STEP 1 so I am registered with ECFMG but do not intend to take the further steps for now I need to work soon...

I am looking for a way to get my credentials/education recognized in the US to be able to apply for a job in healthcare or to a college course.
Can I use ECFMG / EPIC which has already communicated with my university? Do they deliver without going through with the steps some kind of credential information that is valid in the US (EPIC?)
Or should I go through a service suche as World education services or ECE Education credetial evaluation?

Thank you

That's incredibly interesting! Thank you, I can already see a huge difference between the medicine I study myself and the one my mother did, for example. Like, have you heard about dental 3D printers? That's just mind-blowing! No need to be a sculptor for making a teeth implants! I just cannot believe how medicine is quickly moving forward...

Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:31 am

by goldstandard_mcat (Posted Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:31 am)
In order to choose when to take the MCAT, you must first ask yourself a series of questions such as:

When will I apply for admission to medical school?
How long do I need to study for the MCAT?
What materials will I use to study for the MCAT?
Where will I register to take the MCAT?
Will I take the MCAT just once or will I want to retake it?

Each question is explained in detail here ... -the-mcat/

Oxidative phosphorylation is best described as:

A. the process in which ATP is formed as electrons are transferred from electron carriers to oxygen.
B. the process to repay the oxygen debt.
C. the process in which ATP is formed as pyruvate is converted into acetyl CoA.
D. the process in which ATP is formed as acetyl CoA is completely oxidized to carbon dioxide.

Correct answer: A

Oxidative phosphorylation is defined by A; B may be true but it is an inadequate description of oxidative phosphorylation; C describes the intermediate step between glycolysis and the Krebs cycle; D describes the Krebs cycle.

Next Step MCAT prep personal experiences

by IMPROVEDAILY (Posted Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:33 am)
Hey future docs,

I was hoping some of you would be willing to share a review on Next Step MCAT prep. as a reference point for me to know what to look for in an elite instructor/tutor.

I know the exams are suppose to be pretty tough, but what about the one on one tutoring?

Kaplan and Princeton Review have structured classes, private tutor sounds great, but Im uncertain about one hour a week to get the most out of MCAT prep.

Personal experiences or of known experiences through personal acquaintances please.
