Transcript

Stanford University often asked question, what's the difference between Bio one 50, bio two 50, and is it hum, bio one 60? No difference. It's exactly the same. So like the same requirements, same unit. So take whichever one makes your life easiest. Let's see. Any other procedural stuff? Well, the answers are back from Monday's questionnaire and a, uh, variety of interesting answers.


Not surprisingly, given the size of a group, why have you taken this course?
