One of the advantages of being a chemistry major, and subsequently the many years spent meticulously in the laboratory and classroom, is my inherent familiarity with a plethora of procedures, skills, and safety protocols. I am familiar with all of the natural sciences – chemistry, physics; and last but not least, biology - and enjoy working in them immensely. I have no qualm for example in preparing a simple solution or mixture, employing autoclaving, and washing glassware and Pyrex in and outside of the lab. After Organic Chemistry, these procedures have been washed in my head – always wash the reactions vessels when the experiment is complete. These skills and disciplines carry on over into any other fields, and it is my belief that a good scholar prides himself in learning and then eventually mastering as many skills as he can.
