Re: NS FL # 6, Q53 biology

Thanks for the question! Since adenylyl cyclase activity would be stopped after the G protein signal stopped being sent, if it were to continue that implies that the signal isn't being stopped. Since the signal isn't being stopped, it follows that the means by which that signal is stopped have been ...

Re: NS FL #6, Biology Q55

Thanks for the question! I'm not exactly sure the best way to clarify this -- what was your thought process? How did you approach it? What were the trickier components of the question? I'd be glad to try to address any confusion, but I'm not sure where to aim my answer! Essentially, we are trying to...

Re: AAMC FL 1 P/S Questions

Thanks for the questions! Q8: So the simplest way to think about this one is to redefine how you're approaching it. The question is really asking "which of the following controls what you're noticing when you have high interoceptive awareness?" That is defined in the passage as the ability to "detec...

Re: Chem Chapter 1 Independent Q 8

Thanks for the question! While you are correct that copper is an exception to the usual orbital filling rules, this certainly doesn't lend it more stability than a noble gas. Copper is likely to form cations, which means it is likely to lose electrons. Bromine, being extremely close to a complete oc...

Re: Erikson's stages

Thanks for the question! Yes, there are unfortunately a bunch of different references for the exact ages of each stage floating around out there. The general age, logic behind the stage, what's going on during the stage, etc. is going to be way more important than the borderline cases. The MCAT is d...

Re: Lessons Learned Journal (LLJ)

Thanks for the question! Yes, that is the correct reference for the skill types. You may find it more helpful to put those into your own words at a certain point or to think about what actionable changes you might make on similar types of questions in the future. The LLJ is hugely helpful, but make ...

Re: NS FL #6, Psych Q39

Thanks for the question! This one is a little tricky to explain in clear terms, because it is the lack of passage information supporting varying levels of confidence that makes it wrong. There would have to be some reason to think there were varying levels of confidence in medical knowledge within a...

Re: NS FL6 CARS (P5 Q28)

Thanks for the question! There's another recent post on this exact question! Seems like NS FL6 is particularly hot right now 8-) :D and perhaps this part of the passage may need some updating...
