What would you recommend a person study if they are looking into getting unt marine biology? Is it better to just start out with biology or go straight into a more specific form? I understand that attending grad school is more or less a must in order to obtain a job.

The best thing you can do is get lab experience, and internships. You could have a degree in biology, microbio, biochem, math, physics, chem, etc. and have an equal chance at getting into a grad school if you have had a good internship/ lab to work in.

With any science major you are able to take marine classes, but it does help to have skills outside of marine biology (e.g. math, computer science, stats) because those skills will set you apart from others who are trying to get into that same program.

Many marine ecologists use a lot of modelling so knowing how to read and write code and knowing bio stats makes you stand out against the rest.

Yup. Yes. And definitely!

today was a good day for the NMFRP team. we saw an aggregation of more than 24 giants today!

I’m so inspired by how my friend has made this a reality. This being—an amazing master’s thesis! Ugh, I cannot wait.

I needed to read this today.

I’ve reached this point in my online presence where I don’t allow myself to go on tumblr unless I complete my manuscript draft or some other responsibilities. As you can see, months later, this logic is flawed.

I’m going to start blogging again. First, I have laundry to do (so much for that plan).
