The purpose of the post for today is to provide my insights into interviews and hopefully ease some fears by helping you figure out what to expect at a biomedical science, molecular biology, immunology, or similar interview. I have a few questions that were in my message box, but other than that, I'm just goin
I received some lovely questions from a couple of users this week, so this blog entry is going to cover some things about my perception of interdisciplinary programs.
