I decided to be premed almost immediately after arriving at MIT. At the same time, I decided to put off taking a bio lab until the last possible minute. Unfortunately, that minute has come.
I didn't think it would be that hard. Yeah, it's a CI-M, but I just finished 2.671 (the course 2 CI-M and notoriously the worst class in the major), and this couldn't be much worse. I thought my prior experience with scientific writing combined with the fact that bioengineering is infinitely more interesting than "measurement and instrumentation" would make this class a breeze.
I was wrong. It is incredible how different bioengineering writing is from mechanical engineering writing. As I was writing the protein engineering summary, I could not wait to get back to writing about linear actuators and force sensors.
