Re:

alex, you don't like microbiology? It's such a fun topic.... I didn't like it when I took my first unit in microbiology. I don't know why, it just didn't interest me. It took a studentship in the area to turn me around and now I have a BSc and an MSc in it, work in the microbial diagnostics industr...

Re: brain pain

is there a scientific explanation as to why biolgy makes my brain hurt You need a break. Also maybe the way you're studying bio is wrong. It might help to look up different studying techniques. Biology is a hard subject, with a lot to take it. If you don't understand something, try a different book...

Re: How to be "good at the bench"

Everyone struggles with lab skills to begin with. I improved a lot after doing a studentship at the end of my second year and have become even more stringent from working in industry. You never stop learning. It takes practise and being taught how to exercise procedures properly, for eg - holding a ...

Re: Biologist Needed to Answer Interview Questions

I think that this is a great question, and could be helpfull to many college student majoring in biology. These are all personal questions, where the answer would be different for each person. So if you use someone else's answers, you are basically stealing their identity. Any actual bio grad shoul...

Erm...are you trying to scam? If not why do you need someone else to answer those question? You even want a name and title! :S

I suggest going for a job you are suited to, rather than using stealing someone else's identity.

Contrary to popular belief, boys can be bitchy and moody. I have to put up with one such boy 5 days a week at work. :S My advice is to try not to exert so much energy into preventing arguments between other people for two reasons: In the end of the day, people need to learn from their own mistakes a...

Re:

It's tough to have much of a career without a graduate degree, and even then it usually has to be a PhD. But graduate school usually won't add to your debt - most places will pay you a pittance and cover your tuition for teaching or research assistantships. It will take a while, though. Huh? That's...

You could research into if there are master degrees in biology which accept your BSc. Such as bioinformatics, for which a sound background in programming would be an advantage. MScs are shorter and will result in a higher qualification, which could improve job proscepts. Alternatively you could look...
