Miscellaneous Tidbits

Here are a few random tidbits of information that have come to my attention recently:
  • Are you considering law school, medical school, or a career in a field like pharmaceutical sales? If so, then check out the Health Professions and Prelaw Center's (HPPLC) new and improved website at The website and the advisors at HPPLC are wonderful resources for students interested in careers in law and healthcare.
  • Looking for an N&M for the fall? Consider STAT-S 100 Statistical Literacy. The course does not assume or require any previous experience with statistics. Students considering S100 should have a good algebra background: either two years of algebra in high school or MATH-M 014 Basic Algebra at IU. Here is a course description for the fall:

STAT S100 - Statistical Literacy -- Kelly McNamara
1:25pm-2:15pm - MWF - PY226
P: MATH M014 or equivalent. How to be an informed consumer of statistical analysis. Experimentsand observational studies, summarizing and displaying data, relationships between variables, quantifying uncertainty, drawing statistical inferences. S100 cannot be taken for credit if credit has already been received for any statistics course (in any department) numbered 300 or higher.
