Okay.. guess what.. i saw this in a forum while thinking on which to choose.
<quote>Sorry to damp your enthusiaism. I heard a life science grad probably when you graduate, you end up washing test tubes in the biopolis. And if you did decide to pursue this field, well you mz be prepared to pursue it all the way up to PHD levels. Because in the life science field, a mere bachelor degree will not do you good if you wanna stay in life-science field.
Common, when did you last see a BAchelor-degree-owned academic publishing a medical/bio science paper in conferences?
Think very very carefully. And yeah this line, hmm pittance starting pay, work in lab all day long, may develope allergy to the alcohol used in the sterilizing environment and yeah little or no career advancement because probably after you grad, you may be just working as a research assistant to some PRC or Indian born PHD in NUS or NTU.</quote>
and another guy said this..
<quote>dun do life science...my fren is having a hard time looking for jobs even though this period should be easy than ever to get jobs.
u might just end up giving tuition.</quote>
Seriously, this make me a bit discouraged in choosing nus especially when the closing date is very near.
This post even discourage me more as its from those who have gone through life science and can't secure a job..
P.S: Sorry for being so negative here. Cause I feel that what matters in the end is whether you can get a job after u hv study so hard for the course that u like..
