Don’t get it twisted…Its MEB not MCB!!!

So way back in November of 2007…WOW that seems like such a long time ago O.O! Well anyways that was when I was applying for colleges and at that point my focus was more on essays and SAT as I knew pretty much that I was only going to apply to UC schools. Well when the day came when I actually had to submit my application I was confronted with the idea of what was I to major in college. For me I knew from the get go that I wanted to study biology so on all the UCs that I applied to I marked “biology”….well until I got to Berkeley. After looking at all the majors I was shocked that there was no generic and straightforward “biology” and there was no way I was going to do MCB because honestly cells bore me. I was pretty distraught but decided to apply under CNR as undeclared because I was not sure what I wanted to major in but there seemed to be plenty of science majors. Now that I think about I guess it was a good thing that I wasn’t thorough in my search because If I did carefully search I might have applied as an IB major in L&S which would not be good.

Well when I first learned about MEB the first thing that came to mind was “oh I bet it’s like MCB but you look at cells of trees and other organisms…boredom”. However throughout the year I began to look more into MEB and found it to be a very interesting major. The thing is that I enjoy studying animals and everything about them so when I found out about the biodiversity concentration in MEB and the classes like “spider biology”, “herpetology” and “primate ecology” for the major I almost flipped!!! This major was meant for me and It felt so good finding a calling in the form of a major =) So when people say MCB? I say “Don’t get it twisted…Its MEB not MCB”.
