  1. ROUGHLY Rotting olives under garages have little yeast.
  2. Hey, I'm in 2nd year undergrad and I recently (about 2-3 weeks ago) received an opportunity to get a volunteer position in a pathology & molecular medicine lab. However, I don’t feel like I’m learning anything valuable/ transferable skills as I literally just follow a protocol to passage tissue cultures and do these random “experiments” to test the efficacy of some virus purification apparatus. So as dumb as this may sound, I’m not sure if this will actually turn into a valuable experience or if I’m just being used to wash dishes/ low maintenance stuff. The prof did specify that the position entailed “general lab duties” but I was hoping there’d be an opportunity to progress within my role and actually use my brain at some point. This role does require 6 hours/ week committment which is alot of time. And although I am currently doing other forms of research, this is just the only immediate opportunity I have to gain experience in a wet lab setting, which isn’t very easy get. but as i stated, I don’t wanna waste my time doing something that I neither get paid for nor learn something from. Sorry for the long post but any suggestions about whether or not I should keep this opportunity?

  7. Hey guys, I was wondering - is it frowned upon to not have any leadership experiences as explicitly being in executive positions of clubs/ committees ? Personally, I'm initiating some community projects and was wondering if that would be sufficient to show leadership ability ? Has anyone here actually been successful in the med application process without actually holding such positions ? I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks in advance

  9. Yes, in fact I am. Because its ironic how other people who write an academic explanations essay for their disadvantages don't get to have a special committee arranged for them; one that is specifically catered to/resembles their background, ethnicity etc. LOL! If it were that black and white, I'm sure there wouldn't be an active thread/debate on this topic ...
