welcome to academia. here's how we will know if you're good enough: we'll give you two weeks to come up with a two-year scientific proposal. you will almost die in the process of coming up with a worthy thought experiment. but you will have to live through this so that you may defend it. this will not be pretty. especially since we'll also be testing your knowledge of the central dogma.
should you fail, you'll have to repeat this class next year. don't worry, even the current professors and former tetrad students have also failed this class. this class is designed to break people. it's the hallmark of tetrad and this is how we'll will leave our scar mark in your scientific career.
so goes the intellectual hazing of karmela...
for the record, my head is about to burst. i've never had to hold so much information in it. i've never felt so smart and so stupid at the same time.
