itendswithe asked: Hey bros, I'm a grad student studying animal behavior and currently quite a stressed one at that - that you for making me laugh and reminisce about my undergrad days! Keep up with the science everyone! Grad school is awful and wonderful :)
I JUST realized we hadn’t yet gotten around to answering this. (Sorry guys, it’s been a rough semester)
Anyway, you are so welcome and I’m so glad this made you laugh and reminisce! You’re wonderful and good luck with grad school!

greeklilly asked: I love your page! And I am a Science major, hoping to be a science double major. Do you have any tips on how to make sure I get good grades and keep up with all the work? Also how do I study for science exams, i am finding it hard to study? I am struggling and I need help. Science is my passion.
E.P. Thanks! Personally, making flashcards and doing problems relevant to what I’m studying are things that help me. And if you really need help, don’t hesitate to ask TAs and professors at their office hours! Study groups also help a lot. Good luck!
I agree, making flash cards and doing problems are definitely a solid studying strategy.
I also find rereading the chapters and my notes from class to be very helpful. Usually I do that and rewrite the most important information as I go and that way it serves as both studying and putting together a sort of study sheet.
Good luck! You can do it!
sheslikeanancientartifact asked: After having a full year of only science and math classes it is very weird to have a liberal arts class. My professor for that class says things like, "Oh you don't take notes, this is discussion," and "well how do you know what you're experiencing is real or not?" And I'm trying to wrack my brain for journal articles with relevant data but that's not how the class works. I forgot how to not science. Anyone else have similar experiences?
Man, I totally feel that. BIG TIME.
My reaction to discussion courses can basically be summed up as “deer in the headlights”. It’s great, professors just love it.
Luckily philosophy and literature courses always seem to reach a point or two where science is somehow tangentially relevant and that’s when I STRIKE and get those coveted participation points.
I’m sure my classmates appreciate me dragging science into the mix.
