Piece of Advice

Enthusiasm for the field you’re studying will carry you further than a mastery of any specific class, so stick with it when it gets hard. Keep striving to learn as much as possible about the problems you want to solve. If you’re not really sure what you want to do when you graduate, go to grad school - even if you’re not sure you’re good enough (especially if you think that)! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. And always run control experiments and replicates!
