    Haha yeah I will! We have to buy labcoats and stuff but we don't have lockers yet, so the gloves and labcoat will have to be taken home ewwwww!

    Apparently the smell of the embalming chemicals and formaldehyde and stuff has a side effect of making you hungry haha!
    Your university doesn't supply its students with labcoats????

    We get free labcoats for lab work, but we have to buy the DR lab coats.

    Had my first session today, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it was still kinda creepy seeing the woman's face...her eyes and mouth were slighty ajar......creeeeeepppy

    Hi guys, I want to ask the graduated biomeds on pros and cons of doing a lab-based project or dissertation. And also why you chose to do a lab-based project or dissertation? And finally current and future biomeds: what are you hoping to do; lab-based project or dissertation and please justify.

    As good as any, they are not going to look for amazing people with loads of work experience, it is quite a competitive course at certain unis but on the whole they are not really going to care to much about it.

    Yeah, and you have to be straight to the point and concise, and still write a lot of detail to make at least a couple of pages.

    And then you've got Harvard Referencing and Bibliography to think about. :sigh:

    I have a spectocbatowritetherestofit practical on Tuesday, and the briefing for it today...By the looks of it, it won't be much fun :emo: But we learnt how to set up a microscope last Tuesday and looked at blood slides we'd prepared. That was entertaining although seeing the cells so big kinda freaked me out a bit

    Did you zero the machines properly? 2nd year practicals for me were pretty much chain yourself to one of them and make friends with it...
