    Serious Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, and Genetics (questions.)

    Depends on where you live and what your specialization is but medical school is almost always a sound investment unless you decide to go somewhere like Wayne State and pay 100k a year and get saddled with a 400k debt. I agree with you on law school but only to a point; a lot of the saturation...

    Congratulations Chou. Very nice to see someone's success story in a very tough field like economics. Best of luck to you.

    Serious Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, and Genetics (questions.)

    With respect to industrial jobs in the biomedical, genetics and synthetic organic chemistry field, hirings generally fluctuate depending on the developments and discoveries of several companies. For example, Gilead is hiring in fairly large volumes because of their new Hep C drug which literally...

    I'm not trying to attack you or anything and I appreciate the advice. Medicine (and chemistry) has been my biggest passions in life and at the moment I still don't think there's anything I'd give up for the opportunity to pursue it.

    I don't have a conviction for teaching it's just one of my interests. It's not something I want to do for all of my life. My passion has been basically chemistry and medicine all my life and I don't intend to stray from the medicine aspect and chemistry at this point isn't practical at all.

    Synthetic and Medicinal Organic Chemistry. And yes, teaching English is completely unrelated but I found out through TAing that I really enjoy teaching.

    Post college grads come here

    Graduation for me is a kick in the nuts since there exist no job prospects for the degree I'm obtaining in my hometown; I'd have to move down to the States to get a job with a competitive wage and at the moment, since I'm unwilling to move in order to attend medical school at the soonest...

    The Walking Dead Thread - Spoilers ITT

    Except we see Daryl running through the forest so it's most likely they both survived. Judging by the first part, it seems there was a smoke bomb and most likely both of them got out (to the chagrin of Glen) Good episode, don't really want to get all in-depth about it though.

    The Walking Dead Thread - Spoilers ITT

    I was watching that episode trying to introduce a friend to the series. In hindsight wasn't the best idea I think? Glenn taking down that walker after hours of torture and being strapped to a chair was the highlight of the entire series for me.

    New TPCi VGC Tournament Planner - Chris Brown!

    He's introduced himself here and is most likely willing to take comments and questions as long as they're polite and non-inflammatory. Always good to see an organizer take a deeper interest in the grass roots of the community.

    VGC 2013 Regional Rules

    Assume no BW2 moves, tutors, TMs, abilities etc until we actually get TPCi saying otherwise. The PTO in Houston has already said same rules as last year (except for the flying Pikachu) and that didn't include BW2 exclusive releases that were already released in Japan during Worlds. I am not too...

    VGC 2013 Regional Rules

    Don't feel forced to try "new" and "unique" things; Ray Rizzo had a more standard team with Metagross, Tyranitar, Cresselia and the like. He just knew how to work with his team flawlessly by specifically designing their EVs and moves. It also helps that he's a great player in his own right, so...

    VGC '12 World Championships - Kona, HI, USA - WON by BlueCookies & Dimsun!

    ... no. Anyways, Worlds will be streamed 2 hours and 20 minutes from this post (do not be fooled; TCG finals are first, then the VGC finals later, at 3:30 in Hawaii, 6:30 PST, 9:30 EST). Looking forward to the final; will it be a threepeat, or will Wolfe score a regional/nationals/worlds combo?

    VGC '12 World Championships - Kona, HI, USA - WON by BlueCookies & Dimsun!

    Yeah but your state government cuts down in-state tuition and the upper-tier ones give you a lot of financial aid (Unless you're an athlete and don't receive an athletic scholarship, an out-of-state student, or international, paying full price is virtually unseen of. Of course, this is assuming...
