I think people could just donate blood glucose meter without strips
and government should compensate strips. That would make people contribute more and to see the point of donating as this won't be used up in several months.
I'm in nursing school and already want to switch...

You should definitely do what you want to! I'm now horribly struggling with my wish to do science while studying medicine. Nobody understands my wish and the thing I just want to do is to work part-time in a laboratory... People are also saying that I should focus on what I study but I want more! So I understand you very well. Keep going!

That's a pretty good essay. The only thing i would recommend you is to check the tips one more time and to ask someone to proofread it for you. I've personally used the help of Supreme essay service. They do a good job. So you can give them a try. Good luck!
Studying for MCAT

I am so thankful that you are studying for the MCAT. That is a very interesting course of study. The way that I would study would be the following ways:
1. Get plenty of sleep.
2. Get enough to eat and drink.
3. Understand what is on the test.
4. Get some notes and get a CD of a practice test.
These are just some of the things that you can do in order to help you study. I hope that this helps.
Thank you !! My score 262

FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO GET RESIDENCY?

Clinical research is an interesting field. But if a person wants to become a nurse they need to stay motivated and keep on working hard. Everything is possible. The most important thing is being healthy. When you are healthy and young you can achieve anything! Even get residency! You just have to write a good personal statement, study hard and work hard too!

Course regression for MCAT black mark on transcript?
Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:13 pm
by Prometheus123 (Posted Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:13 pm)
I'm considering taking Spanish 101-103 this quarter. This would be course regression because I've taken upper level Spanish courses recently, up to the Spanish 303. My adviser says that's generally not a good idea, but do you think it's likely to actually make a difference in terms of whether I get into medicals schools or not?
Why do I want to do this? It's part of my MCAT prep strategy.
1. Taking courses in general will help support me financially so I can work less and study more.
2. It will also enable me delay paying back my student loans for 6 months after I graduate.
3. Taking low-level intro Spanish courses specifically will give me more time to study for the MCAT because I won't have to study outside of class for the classes, I'll just have to show up and do the homework. I could take upper-level courses, but I'm worried that that would be too much of a distraction from the MCAT.
For context, I did my first 2 years of college several years ago and got a GPA of 2.32. I dropped out in 2011, lived in India and Dubai for 2 years and tried a few careers. I became convinced I had to pursue medicine and transferred to a different college in 2015 to do my pre-reqs and finish my undergraduate degree.
By the time I apply in summer 2017, I'll have a cumulative GPA of 3.2. My GPA will be on the low end of applicants, but I'll have a strong trend of improvement in my favor.
So do you think this course regression is a reasonably small risk to take, or given my rocky history is it important that I find another way?

I created a youtube channel (USMLE Tweetz) with short lectures that are intended for USMLE Step 2CK and Step 3. Instead of completely covering a topic, the aim of these lectures is to clarify issues where students tend to double guess themselves.

Are Foreign medical schools now a really bad idea?
Fri Sep 16, 2016 6:30 pm
by CaribMD (Posted Fri Sep 16, 2016 6:30 pm)
In 2016 are Foreign medical schools now a really bad idea? With the Match rates very low for FMGs and will continue to decline, should those hoping to go to medical school either continue to try in the USA or forget medicine?
What do you think now?
Hi there, any ideas?

I want to mention that we should not be afraid to be or to feel weak. We are not perfect and nobody is not good at writing or any other subject as bookworms are. So that is why I have also decided to order and pay for my essay. No shame, but there was no other way out. I went to "Marvelous Essay" and I was not wrong about my choice.

Interesting Science Q&A
Wed Sep 14, 2016 2:21 am
by ChloeMica (Posted Wed Sep 14, 2016 2:21 am)
The research from academic community in science Q&A is endless, the research is beyond the information science, communication, sociology, computer science, as well as some other fields. Clearly, medical science has kept gaining ground on the most dreaded conditions, which means further research advances like cell adhesion peptides could be significant for social progress to a large degree. Thus, related science Q&A might attract increasing concerns in public.
1. When will people lose the ability to learn new words?
The latest research shows that people around the age of 60 began to lose the ability to learn new words. However, on the other hand, the stage is relatively late while compared with some other skills, such as the stage that begins to lose the ability to remember looks of strangers (mainly 20 years old) and interpret other emotions (40 years old).
2. What’s the function of zebra’s stripes?
In terms of those black and white stripes on a zebra, there are many assumptions, such as repelling mosquitoes, creating visual illusion for predators, facilitating mutual recognition, as well as regulating body temperature among similar partners. Biologist Brenda from the University of California has found that the higher the temperature is, the denser the zebra’s stripes could be. Since the heat absorption of black is higher than that of white, the difference can be produced to play the role of conditioned air flows around the skin.
In addition, more stripes can help to drive blood-sucking insects because they prefer hot and black hair animals, such as buffalo. In fact, zebra is born black, while those white stripes are always generated because of suppressed pigmentation results. Each zebra’s stripes are different from others’, which could be formed in the embryonic stage.
3. Will people suffer from hair loss because of tension?
Physical or psychological stress can cause hair loss (as much as three-quarters), which belongs to telogen effluvium. In general, this is a temporary disorder. Thus, when the anxiety disappears, the hair will back to normal, but some people will suffer from cyclical symptoms, with rotigaptide
. Tension will lead to another kind of alopecia, namely the alopecia areata, which is always characterized as a specific range of hair loss, usually within a circular range.
Science, as the focus of social concerns, is continuously affecting people’s daily life. Further advances in science will benefit people more, with high-level efficacy in various research fields.
MCAT practice questions

An aldehyde reacts with a newly-discovered amine to form an imine molecule. Which of the following reaction types took place in this reaction?
A proton transfer
B nucleophilic addition
C acid base reaction
D elimination reaction
Why? Imines are molecules with a carbon nitrogen double bond (similar to a carbonyl, except nitrogen instead of oxygen). In the formation of an imine, the lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen on the amine attack the aldehyde carbon to form a new amine molecule, which after dehydration reaction becomes an imine. Thus (B) is the correct answer.
